Re: Start Button

Get a Jaguar start button that pulses like a heart beat. That would be cool.

Re: Start Button

There's a reason to trade it in on a new Grand Cherokee.

Yanno, that makes me wonder how in the hell I ever managed to unerringly get my key inserted into the ignition switch in the dark for so many years. Sometimes I'm just amazed at my abilities...

You're a legend in your own mind.

I was thinking the same thing about the key. When they moved the ignition switch from the dash to the column, you usually couldn't see it even in broad daylight.

Re: Start Button

Does anyone know how to install this decal? Should I remove the old one or just stick this over the original?

Re: Start Button

Seems to me it would be easiest to just carefully put the new sticker over whatever exists unless the new doesn't fully cover current graphics.

Re: Start Button

Just got this decal button today and held it up against my button and didn't care for the look. If someone wants it they can have it for $5.00 shipped in the USA. New never used.

That's the trade off for having a removable button.


I thought about adding an LED into the trim panel but never bothered because it would be alot of work just to say you had a lighted button.

I thought about powering the Led from the dome light. I also thought about powering it from the dash lights.

then I thought about putting two leds.

probably would be a cool mod but uneccessary
