Broken Fpv Start Button

Recommended Posts

the other day I hoped in the ute and went to start it and the button you press was gone, it had broken at the bottom and the spring behind it poped it out onto the floormat.

I know I can get this fixed but has anyone else had or even heard of this happening before?

I have no idea how the hell this even happened, b*lls*it really for the elite level of vehicle from ford. Im real pissed off with this one.

$280 for a bloody button, where the only bit broken is the size of a 5 cent piece.

I think you will find it includes the loom as well as the button.

yer at the end of the day all you really need to do is cut some wires and solder on a new button, instead they sell you alot of crap you dont really need!

why the need for the buttom anyway? you have to put the key in to push the button to start, whats the difference between that and a quick twist? waste of money IMO

that's the whole point that pisses me off, im not fitting it to an XR6 so I dont need the whole loom set up! just the $2 plastic button. Assholes!

car is off warranty as of last week - its an October 05' F6 but ill still try

if not ill just ebay one from someone for $300.

Everyone that says why bother with the start button..............., its class. that's why they're only on FPV's. I think every FPV owner will agree with me on that one.

thanks for your help guys and yer I spelt niZpro correctly this time haha

it aint class.. class is having keyless entry, keyless ignition and a start button.. having a key and a start button is just wank factor

Dude if its only a week out of warranty you could kick up a stink and they may just replace it, its not like its an xr6t its an FPV, cant hurt but call the dealer and see what you can get out of them right?

:spoton:

...Another of the reasons I got rid of mine... :spoton:

...took me 2 months of getting into a car and not reaching for the dash at the same time as turning the ignition.

if its class, how come a XG ute had one? :P

its not really an issue pushing it to start, you get used to it.

but you look like a goose when you hop into another car and reach for the dash :P
