Re: Push Button Start Install?

I have a 2011 X. The dealership gave me the button upon purchasing the vehicle. They should all come with the button.

Re: Push Button Start Install?

If it didnt come with a button in the glove box they are 19.99 on ebay.. Its just a little clip that pops in..

I was driving a 2012 GC and I said "damn, this doesnt have push start" So after the test drive I looked in the glove box and there it was.. Popped it in, and it started right up..

My 2011 GC that I just bought was already installed

Re: Push Button Start Install?

On the 2011s every vehicle has enter-n-go. On 2012s the very base model (they made 'e package' optional for 2012) doesn't have enter-n-go and thus I think uses a traditional key start...

By the way does anyone know of an aftermarket button that has just the wrangler-grill logo on it? I think that would be awesome.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose? I want one that says "Eject" in yellow on black.

Re: Push Button Start Install?

I had the same exact issue when i got my 2012 Laredo. I was using the key fob and physically turning it in the ignition. I was actually at a Toyota dealership talking with one of their sales guys (who coincidentally quit working at jeep a few weeks previous). He told me to sit in my jeep and stick my finger in the ignition where the push button goes. Sure enough it worked!

Anyway, i just went back to the dealership and got the push button for the vehicle and it works just fine. They should have an extra laying around or they'll just take it from another vehicle and deal with it later.

My 2011 Summit didn't have it but before I left the dealership, I mentioned it to my salesman and he found one for me.

Re: Push Button Start Install?

i just bought a 2013 last night and it didnt have the button either, however, the salesman had one at his desk (literally a button) and he put it on the GC and told me here dont tell anyone ahhahaha i got one for free as he did told me it was an option on the limited and overland as well. He just simply plug it in were the key goes and thats it, I just push it now to star the car is great...BTW i bought a Laredo with the nav and leather

Re: Push Button Start Install?

That salesman gave you a big line of BS. Hopefully he was just yanking your chain. All 2011-13 GC Limited, Overlands and most X's come standard with the button.
