Push Button Start

I did a search for push button start in our commanders and found nothing. Anyone knows someone who has done this. I installed one in my 04 Hemi Ram and loved it. Its the same button that is in the SRT-10 truck. Very easy 2 wire hookup and would like to install it in my Commander. I remember in the Ram's the yellow ign wire that ran down the steering column and another to the cig pink wire I think and that was it you had push button start. This would be a GREAT MOD to do.

I would think a thief would love it too??
Isn't there circuitry in the key fob that would make this hard to do?
The 08 use an electric fob instead of a traditional metal key.
You still have to insert it in the slot on the dash. It is sort of like the fob we use on our VW.

You have to insert the key in to the ignition and turn it to acc's in order for the push button to work. So no key no start. This is in the SRT10's and Im sure the Challenger should get it also.

If you have to put the key in the ignition anyway...whats the point of pushing a button to start the truck.....doesn't make sense to me...at all.....

Its like having a viper or a Porsche or Lambo which they all come with Push button start. You dont see them saying it doesnt make sense because they use it. Its a cool feature to have and trust me your friends will think it cool as hell. I guess if you dont like modding your commander then that's cool for you but not for me I like modding that hell out of what ever I have.

It just doesn't make sense to have to put the key in and then push the button. If your going to have push button start it should be just a button and no key.

But its a Jeep...not a Lambo, Porsche, or Viper, its an SUV.......but hey, whatever floats your boat, seems like a big waste of money (not to mention impractical) to put your key in, and actually turn it halfway, then push a button to start your engine....but again....its your truck......whatever ya like.............
