moish No i'm not trying to make a push button starter. No i'm not trying to make a keyless push button starter.

Picture this, a guy doesn't have anyone to turn the key on by he needs to engage the starter and not turn over the engine while he is underneath the car. He could press one of those REMOTE STARTER SWITCHES from Autozone that costs around $15. (I made my own but need to confirm how the alligator clips hook up to battery and solenoid)
Thanks again for trying,
Moishe

EOD Guy If you are trying to make a push button starter using the key to turn it on/off..... use colbalt's dia. If you are trying to make a keyless push button starter then it's way more complicated.

moish The Toyota Tacoma has an automatic transmission.( No, the remote won't allow me to hook up a trailer).
Wouldn't one clip go to +bat terminal and one clip to the "S" or ignition switch?
I would then have to put key into "on" position but not start up engine. I would then hit the Remote starter that I made?
On YouTube this was done EXCEPT the guy DIDN't show a key in the ignition being used. This is the part that doesn't make sense.(Circuit closed w/o key in "on" position, correct?)

Thanks for trying to get me an answer,
Moish

It sounds like you're still asking. Did you see: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/remo...ml#post1599430?

I believe (if you have a manual trans?) you might be able to use the relay terminal but that will not work w/alligator clips w/o making jumpers for the female terminals to connect to the remote switch.

EOD Guy Ok, I get it now...... you want the starter to engage, but not start the truck....... Colbat's dia is right on.

Is this a manual truck? I assume you want to put the truck in rev and use the starter switch to back it up to hook up a trailer?

Thank you, but that isn't the "application " I was refering to. My application is to have the switch in you hand.
Thanks anyway.

One way is to go directly to the starter:

EOD Guy Honestly have no clue what you are asking....... You have made a remote starter, kit, button and you want to know where your wires go? How many wires do you have on your switch? What is the purpose of your switch.... maintenance, trouble shooting?

You might have to provide more info in reguards to the questions asked above in order to get some actual helpful advice.
