10# From the loom there are 2 GREEN/RED wires, connect anyone of these wires to Earth and this will make the switch light up.


ok, im left with these two wires, where, exactly do i plug them in? i lost the instructions that came with the button, ive wired everything else up, and the button works, it just doesnt glow red.

OK - I have just put in my FPV button and connected all the wires and it works except for the illumination of the button. I have double checked everything and still no illumintion on the switch.
Any suggestions?

Just fix my problem - the kick panel connector has a grey/red wire which the docs say is for utes - well my BA is a sedan.
Only a minor change but should be noted that the wiring can be either for sedan and utes which was a bit confusing.

Doesn't look too bad at all.. I installed one on my EF, but for a completely different reason.. My immobiliser computer under the dash crapped itself and wouldn't let me start the car with the key, so i bypassed it with a push button... was gunna grab a new computer this week but i kinda like the button so i might hold out for a while... LOL... The novelty of its still there, its funny watchin idiots try and start my car...


It's funny watching a Ford dealer salesman, try to start a GT, have it not work, then assume the battery is dead and run off for a jump pack. By the time he got back, I reached in and hit the button.

Me I'm so used to the starter button, my hand instinctively reaches over for a non-existent button on the work BF.

I had a start button in my EB and i would do the same thing.
Everytime i got in another car i would reach over for the button.

Would the button be suitable for installation to an EF/EL in the same manner I wonder? (without bypassing Smartlock?)

This seems pretty easy to do on the BA/BF of course, but it was designed with this model in mind
