Push Button Start!

Hi Guys,
Thought you might like to see the new 2Go Keyless system I just finished installing on my 2010 GT its sweet!
The Push Button Start switch in my dash came out real nice, I did the install myself.
I walk up, my doors automatically unlock and the Start Button lights up, cool huh?
I just push of the Start button and my engine roars! Itís bad ***!
As I get out and walk away everything automatically locks up.

I got it from www.digitalguarddawg.com and Iím really happy with the system and the tech guy at Digital Guard Dawg was real helpful.

Nice, but can you make a video of this in action? Well, I watched the video on the site, can you post a couple photos of the unit you have to carry?

I think that's the first I've seen of that, but it really looks nice. More pics? Info on install?

Wow thanks for all the cool comments. Yea I'm really stoked with the way it
came out. It was easier then I though. And its not JUST a push button
start,It's a keyless ignition and it automatically opens my door locks and
it has a full alarm and it has remote start included to! I just have to have
the transmitter thingy with me (they call it an IKEY) heres a pic. The IKEY
thing is real flat and would fit in a wallet if you wanted. I keep mine in
my jeans watch pocket.







All I do is walk up and my doors unlock and the alarm disarms. That's when
the start button lights up. I have to put my foot on the brake before I push
the button to start, but if I want just turn on just my radio and
accessories I push the button without pushing the brake down.
I've installed alarms before and this was basically the same kind of
install. The only kinda new thing was dealing with the steering column lock
and bypassing the factory security that's the chip in the key head thing. I
did what the guy I bought it from at Digital Guard Dawg called a Cut Key
Method. At first I wasn't real sure about handling the lock there way but
after I thought about it it made sense and was easy and worked fine. All I
did was cut off the head of my spare key, then I put the blade of the key in
the lock and released the lock, The wires to the key switch all connected to
the systems module, so there was like no power still going to the key switch
anyways, so I figured it didn't really matter if I cut key in the lock cuse
all it was was a mechanical lock left and no one would be able to start the
car with out the transmitter.

To bypass the factory chip in the key I zip tied the head of the key behind
the lock cylinder. The Guard dawg guy said I might need to use a bypass
module, like for a remote start but they suggested I try the zip tieing
approach first and it worked great. Like I said man I'm stoked! It works
just like those new Mercedes do. Oh yea, Guard dawg sent me a vynal cap that
went right over the old key switch hole so you don't even really notice the
old ignition. OK heres a pic of that to. See its sweet!
The guys at gard dawg were real helpful, They got some more info on there
site www.digitalguarddawg.com

The keyless remote and pushbutton start on our 2012 Focus Titanium has spoiled me rotten! This probably will not show up as a factory option on the Mustang until the all new 2015 model is out.

You did an excellent job on that install. It looks like the kit came with a plug to stick into the ignition key slot. Just curious if it will work on a manual transmission. ?

It should work if it is wired properly to require the clutch to be depressed to start it... The 2012 Focus I have which has an automatic requires the brake pedal to be depressed to start it without a key.

Now remote starting with a manual transmission car, that's risky if some goober leaves it in gear and tries to start it remote. That is the entire reason why clutch pedal switches were implemented to keep goobers from making a vehicle lurch mowing down people and property when starting it.

Anyway this is fun to watch!

Remote Start Fail

Going through their install manual, it get's wired to the clutch interlock switch to prevent it from lunging forward, so it will work. Considering this myself. A DIY with pics on this would be AWESOME!
