This is the one I have in my car. Just replaces the action of turning the key the last time, but still cool. Mine lights up red at night, just bright enough to light up the words more than the whole button, not overly bright at all. The PO put it in, and even though I know it's not really a good idea I do wish it worked without the key just so it was more useful. But I have no idea how that would work lol

You would need a RFID kit like this for example...

Hahah HOLYCRAP, one time in a parking lot I saw a car, nobody in it/nobody around, VIOLENTLY lurching into the car in front of it 3 maybe 4 times, totally screwing up both front ends it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen, but still was scary. Didn't figure out til weeks later when tellin someone the story, they said it was probably someone remote-starting a stickshift lol, oh man. ....

I would absolutely love a remote-start on an automatic, but I wouldn't even risk it on a stickshift, for the above-mentioned reasons OR to avoid a running-vehicle-rollaway since it cannot be left in gear, lol.

I installed a full push start in my 01 ZX3 manual 5 speed. No need to insert a key either.
