No sir, it isnt. Thats why i did the led part of the install. After i did mine, i did a small led that lights the button at night and looks factory. Its in my gallery. Radio Shack has a 12 volt green led that matches the focus dash perfectly and can be mounted under the button very easily.

I'm going to bump this and ask what I've asked months ago, anyone install the S2000 button on a 2005-207 yet? And can provide ANY information/pics of the installation? I just don't want to start doing it blind...

I dont know where the thread is, someone did that on here. Its the exact same wiring, just put the button where you want it. Dont let it intimidate you, this is a very easy thing to do. Just take your time.

I thought someone did, but I couldn't find it on the how-to. I'm getting ready to start some of my interior mods (Escape auto shifter, starter button, audio, etc) and I need to have all of my "ducks in a row" before I get started.

IDEA: please anyone respond to this with comments:
first off, did anyone find a way to do this removing the ignition cylinder completely??
also, the reciever for the PATS system (key has to be 1/2 inch away to start the car) would it be possible to relocate that to somewhere, say, below the cupholder? so that one could just set the keys in the cupholder and press the engine start button?
im trying to think of ways to remove the ignition cylinder without making the car a thieve's dream come true...any thoughts on this??

The chip has to be a 1/2" from the ignition cylinder correct? Doesnt the key unlock your steering wheel so you can turn it? Reminds me of that one car where the key is a card that you put in your wallet and you lay your wallet on the center consol and push the start button and vrooom, the car starts. If you find a way I would like to hear about it because I would love to do that.

i guess one thing you could maybe get away with (has not opened his wheel yet) would be to remove the locking part of your wheel. then do the cup holder idea. then a silly boy who needs crack money could get in your car and make engine noises as he turns the wheel... but he wouldnt really be going anywhere. as far as a card, you could always fiberclass around your key and make it a rather thick card ;).

again, i am not sure if this is possible, just an idea to be called stupid for thinking ;).

(if this is a great idea i want full credit and a million bucks, also someone to do the install for me ;))
