RX-8 Start Button

Hi Does anybody knows how to wire a RX-8 Start Button? And any ideas where to put the button? I was thinking about the space on my stock radio; just below the volume button.

Hi! U can install it on the right hand side where the card holder is, which means remove the card holder and replace by the start button

Post Start....

If you have a right-hand-drive JDM spec car, I would recommend the Mazda kit.

It does replace the coin holder on the right of the steering column, by the door, and should just plug into the existing harness. It comes with instructions.

Bro XMatrix, you mean like this?

Dun mean to get you excited, but I hvnt done the wiring part.
This is the OEM Mazda RX-8 start button, but I placed it there cos I still wanna use the coin box.

Pull.....

The plastic piece comes straight out with a pull, you can ease it out carefully with a fine screwdriver.

This button still needs the key in, the chip in the key needs to be recognized.
