Broken Fpv Start Button


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My starter button popped out and fell onto the carpet, took it back for warranty and I have to wait for a few days to get one in, for now I just put the button back in and it works like it did before minus the spring.

Do you have a chemical imbalance of some kind?

Yeh, I use remote start on my car. Then the car drives and picks me up at the front of work. Then I say thanks. And he say that's ok Michael. Here is me hosing off the duke boys.

Having a key and button to start the car is so crap it funny.It is like having to press the button on your remote entry and then still having to put the key in the door lock as well totally retarded

Just went outside to confirm while it's dark.

As I turn the key to the "ignition on" position, the button's red light flickers on for 1/2 sec (can't see it in the daylight :spoton: ), and then goes out. the car can still be started, and it does the same regardless of whether the lights are on or not.....

thanks

Nice and harsh on the new guy. :greyscare:

Mate I would say its just a loose wire, lamp or connection, best bet would be to take it to ford or an auto leko and let them have a look. Sounds like a simple fix. :blush:

Hey Guy's

Yeah, still here, just have been away for the christmas break and have only just back online.

Well, my starter buttons have fixed themselves... the button FELL OUT!!!!!! :spoton:

I read that this is not all that uncommon a problem, but I will now have to replace the whole button assembly anyways. There goesa another $280+ install but I'll take it to ford and that way I'll be sure it works properly when it comes back.

Thanks for the tips so far anyways.

thanks

Is there anyway to start these if the button breaks?

Mine just broke :spoton: out of warranty.

I pushed the button back in with the spring but it got stuck on, and so I had to try and pry it out as carefully as I could, but I did damage the clear plastic part of the button.

I use a small screwdriver to push and start her to get me around till monday when I can order a replacement. :spoton:

Thanks

Like a kick in the nut's!!!

First day back at work tomorrow, so you can be sure the boy's will be out in droves to check out my new show pony, and there I'll be starting it with a screwdriver like I stole it! :omg:

Well, I'll distract them with the cracked fog light lense I just found as I washed her the arvo :blink:

Got a brother in law who works for Ford so I'll get him to price and order me a replacement tomorrow. should be cheaper than the $500 price that Ford normally charge, seeing as the $280 are second hand ones and I don't want it happening again.

thanks

bumping an old thread, but same thing happened to my car. is it possible to replace the starter button on a ba with one from an fg? the fg one doesn't seem to be as flimsy as the ba one with that bit in the middle, and theyre also cheaper on ebay to buy.

I actually quite like the starter button. gives the car that bit of class and sportiness. my previous car was an s2000 so its pretty cool to have another starter button in the gt.....if only mine was working >< starting the car with a pen atm!

it is a marketing wank, but I still think its cool. most people will say its lame etc etc, but they are just secretly jealous :ph34r:

Jealous would be if you didnt have one...had one and got over it very quickly... :spit:

Even more of a wank in the FG's with the cheap and nasty after thought they've hogged the console with now....

Wouldnt be so bad if it was keyless but being that you need to do both makes them pointless.
