Push button start

I'm thinking about ordering the push button start from American muscle. Does anyone know if the clutch still has to be engaged if its in neutral for it to start? Right now in my 5 speed the clutch has to be pushed in for it to start in neutral.

Yes. Which is why I never bought it. You have to have aux on and clutch depressed. You might at well just turn the key a little further and save the money on the button

I mean I guess it's just for looks really. I agree. I'd rather just turn the key all the way. Seems kinda pointless. Thanks for the help

Yes, the clutch still has to be engaged in order to start the car. I know there's people out there that have modified that feature so that the clutch doesn't have to be engaged to start the car. I'm not 100% on how this process is completed though! It's a very common practice when installing a remote start on a manual car.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future!

well, the volvo xc60 has a start button from factory and you still have to press the clutch/brake if you want to start the car so i don't see the issue in doing the same with a diy start button

You have to turn the key almost all the way to use it

Well my buddy has a 6-speed trans am and he has what he calls a "clutch lock" where if he leaves the car in neutral he can start it without pushing the clutch in. He has a key not push button. It just seems pointless to buy a push button when I can just turn my key. I figured it would be like an Altima or whatever they are where as long as the remote is in the car, you can push to start it.

If you buy a tuner and turn PAPS off it will crank with a push button starter. If you look at the clutch petal, it should have 2 wires that make contact when the clutch is engaged. Give the wires constant power with a connection that does not break. I need to look at your year to make sure. A guy who owned a alarm shop around town one day had all this installed with a remote start. He left the clutch in gear and showed a customer how to drive with no driver. The car took off in the street and caused an accident.

If you can figure out how to do that I'd buy it. That sounds cool

Slightly off topic:
When i start the car should i press the brake pedal? most automatics need that but in the owner's manual of the 2005 it doesn't say anything about that. What's your opinion?
Thanks!

I do it, buts that's just because I learned to drive a car with push to start. And it's engraved in my head to push down the brake before start.

I do the same but if there is no need to push the brake then i rather wouldn't because i've done some battery relocation and the stang starts slower so those 4x27w brake light bulbs would slow it even more.

I'm thinking about building something like that myself except hiding the switch for security reasons seems easy enough
