Found this: Add "Intelligent access style" and push button start to non titanium.
 
While browsing the net, I found this:

http://www.advancedkeys.com/index.htm

The combo start and intelligent access is only $350. I did browse the install instructions and it looks mostly like installing a remote start/alarm system. One thing odd you do have to do though, is get a keyblank cut, then cut off the key part and stick that into the ignition and set it to accessory. Then disable the accessory wire to the ignition harness, cover the keyhole with a cover they have, and bypass the the keysense. This is so the steering wheel is not locked when trying to drive.

It looks kind of interesting, but seems like some hassle to go through for the install. Just wanted to throw it out there for you people. Check out the manuals and see for yourself. If you DO decided to try out this system, please post a HOW TO [:)]


EDIT: I forgot this part. The FOB it comes with allows you to remote start your car as well. So if someone is looking at a remote starter, this is pretty close to the same price for a factory one.

not a bad find looks alot better then the aftermarket push button start systems that still require a key to use the push button lol

you can add push button to any foci, people did it on the originals it went where the lighter element was or the coin tray iirc.

Thats a push button start, not inteligent access. With putting in a button you still have to turn the key to on and then press the button to crank. With inteligent access you just have to press the brake and push the button to start the car.

We don't have steering wheel locks.

Curious if you found a dealer that sells this product and got any additional info?
