|2.0 Push-Button Start howto: (might be same on vr6)
This worked on my 96 2.0, so now Ill tell everyone else how to do it properly after i made the mistakes
You still need a key to start the car. you put the key in the ignition, and turn it to the on position, then you can hit the start button.
1. Find yourself a hefty starter button (should have 2 electrical terminals and be able to handle a decent amount of power.) available at most speed shops.
2. get some 10 GA wire, cut 2 pieces off approximately the length of the distance from the ignition switch to where you want to mount the button.
3. Disconnect the negative battery terminal
4. Take the 2 screws out of the bottom of the plastic shroud around the steering column
5.Disconnect the connector on the passenger side of the steering column, it should have like 6 wires in it, 2 big red ones, a black, i think a brown.. you'll know which one it is, it plugs directly into the ignition switch.
6. Splice one of the 2 lengths of wire that you cut into the fat solid red wire. Solder them together to ensure a good connection. This will be your "hot" wire. Be sure not to cut this off the conector as it supplies the rest of the stuff on the switch with constant power.
7. Here's where you get to make a decision. There is a fat red wire with a black line on it. this is the wire that delivers electricity to your starter selenoid. You can either clip this off the connector, or you can splice into it. Chose whichever you are more comfortable with. (clipping the wire off the connector means that when you put the key in, and turn it all the way to the start position, nothing will happen.) If you clip it off the connector, splice into the side of the wire that goes into the cars wiring harness, not the connector. Solder this splice to ensure a good connection.
8. Use shrink-wrap or electrical tape to be sure the bare wire from the connections you just made wont touch anything on accident.
9. Connect each wire at the other end to one of the 2 terminals on the starter switch.
10. Mount your starter button wherever you decided.
11. you're done, this should have also over-ridden the clutch safety switch, so watch out.
I did this mod out of necessity, not for glory or fun. my ignition switch was going screwey and wouldnt allow my car to start very easily, so rather than pay $160 for a new assembly and dealership labor ( i guess they have to install it for some reason) I paid like less than $20 in parts and did it myself.
