Push Button Ignition and Start

Push button ignition and start button – for anyone who finds it difficult or impossible to insert and turn the key.

With the Push button ignition and start button solution from Steering Developments, two button switches and a pot replace the need to insert and turn the ignition key to start the car.

As some people find this difficult and sometimes impossible to do, we can install switches to operate these functions without the need for you to struggle.

Simply drop your key into a suitably located pot to turn the immobilizer off then press button 1 to turn on the ignition and then button 2 to start the engine. ( Please note that the original steering lock is removed from your vehicle )

Push Button Ignition and Start is ideal for:

Drivers who are not able to insert or turn an ignition key

Drivers with high level spinal cord injury

Drivers with severely limited strength and movement

New cars and models are being added to the list of those SDL have fitted push button ignition and start switches to all the time. To establish if your vehicle is suitable for these switches, please call us and we will advise if this is achievable and provide an indication of pricing. We’ll always provide you with expert advice. Note, it doesn’t have to be a brand new car to have this modification done..

Push Button Ignition Start

Versatile – push button switches can be fitted anywhere in the car to suit your needs. We can modify it so the buttons are separate and away from the key pot.

Simple to use – place the ignition key in a simple pot to de-activate the engine immobiliser.
