Default keypad ignition

Hey I was wondering what everyone thought about a push to start button connected to a keypad? This is still in the rough planning stage so any ideas of how to doit whether its a good idea or not whatever is good.

You could just add one of these to a push button switch.

A electric strike door keypad would hook up the same way just a little fiddling and then it wouldn't look like its from a the dollar store.

Look at how Bobcat skidsteers are. The new ones use a key pad to start and stop them. Nice because you can set the code to anything you want.

you can also just tie a fingerprint reader to your ignition. No code needed

I know it may not be what you are looking for but a transponder key fob would work well too. You can tie the transponder to the door locks also so that it will unlock when you get close to the car. You get in, hold the brake and then press the start.

It's basically a keyless go system.

we used key pad ignitions at work on our folk lifts. they only have a couple draw backs. like working and actually making the vehicle start. if you use one its like standing on your head and petting a monkey at the same time to make it work...good luck.

Do what I do, take the axles and motor away, then you don't need one.

your a little late.... UMMMMM Jason Statham already did it in his audi in Transporter.... DUH!!!! lol jk

would be a pretty badass idea if you could tie it in and make it a somewhat plug and play type system maybe into the OBD port and would be able to get rid of everything else
