2011 Dodge Journey R/T push button start

Unread post by steveh » Wed Dec 07, 2016 10:48 pm

After going thru a nightmare with the pushbutton start on my 2011 Dodge Journey R/T, I'm wondering how hard it would be to revert back to the good old key ignition. Thanks for any thoughts, Steve

It would be very difficult. The current starter system uses the power control module, the body control module and the transmission range sensor to tell the starter relay to energize the starter solenoid. You could make a circuit that would power up the starter but you would still need to have the modules turn on and see that the system wants to start and run.
