    Pick up a factory service manual
    Check out the ignition wiring
    Bypass the third key position with new wires going to your push button

    It's not too difficult to see what parts you need to bridge once you have the ignition module out of the steering column.

    I don't think you want all that current running through the passenger compartment, through a puny little switch, and then back out into the engine bay....

    it not that high of a current under 10 amps it only activates the solinoid it does not power it. This is how everyone i know start our trucks and cars but we only use a 1.25 momentary switch never had a problem yet
