    Bro, quick question. Will this work with any other kind of switch? (Provided its not a switch that stays in one position la, I mean those types of switch you find on Aircond starters, the ones that bounce back out when pushed)

    Cos I'm planning on modding one of those toggle switches to not "toggle" but to spring back and to put on a F15 style rocker cover :biggrin:

    Alasui.

    Most importantly is that you need a relay for it. Get a SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) relay with a min of 30 amps for 12V's to use it. You mean you wanna make it like a "doomsday switch" kinda feel to it? Yeah... the same kinda method Hollywood movies use to remote detonate explosive charges. That would be cool. If your wiring is correct, I don't see a problem. However, why not leave the toggle switch to turn on the ignition system ( switch the system to HOT) and the push button to get the baby runnin?

    P.S. If you can let me know where to find those f15 style of rocker covers... that would be mighty appreciated...

    Yeah, I was doing some research on Google and found out about the relay. Mrrrpfh... have to figure out basic kemahiran hidup wiring schematics again :hmmmm:

    And I thought i've come across those rocker switches before.. but i can't remember where. Need to go explore the pasar road electronics shops again one day. woot. First things first, cari relay. Second step, try not to blow up car.

    Ninja Edit : Got my relay at an ICE accessories shop. cost me RM25. Going shopping after work for a pretty looking switch to use. wooo. will post pictures and step by step when I manage to get it working. Heh. I'm estimating the total cost of the project to be below RM35.

    For me, Waja. I think it easy to do it. Only Cost RM10~20.

    Actually, you just need to buy some relay + wire, a switch that very flexible, Waja panel got 5 button, 1 disarm Alarm Siren, following with fog lamp switch then, emergency light then Heater.

    I just need to find the disarm Alarm Siren switch panel(since i already change my alarm), and some wiring with relay, and i just pull my key to on, just press the button it started. I'll post my video afterward or tomorrow. Anyway, i wanna do something like 7Heaven does,

    ACC switch, On Switch and Start Switch! wow! just like D1Spec! wakakakak :rofl::rofl::rofl:
