Basically, its an electronic control module you mount remotely (under helm or dash) that replaces the key switch. All the wires that were on the switch are connected to the control module and a push button with LED light ring fits into the existing key switch hole.

The module has a cut-off switch that disables the push button. You can also wire the original key as the cut off switch if you prefer. I have just a standard toggle switch hidden under the dash that enables the push button start. That way when I leave the boat, I throw the toggle and no one will be able to start it unless they know where the switch is.

The button toggles between OFF, ACC, ON then back to OFF. To start, you push and hold until the engine fires then one push to kill the engine and go back to ACC. In ACC, the ring light pulses (MacBook heartbeat style) and in ON the light is solid.

I asked for one for Christmas, but Santa did not pull through. Maybe this discount will work out for my birthday.

Definitely on my To Do List, just not quite to the top yet.

I really like the look and function of it and almost talk myself into getting one. The only reason I have not pick one up is out of safety concerns. Yes, I'm the old fuddy-duddy. I didn't know you could use the key as cut off switch with it so that does sound a lot better to me.

Can you turn the ACC on with the kill switch in the off position so the boat cannot be started accidentally?

Yes. If you do not want the boat to crank, just yank the kill switch. My keys are in the ignition 100% of the time, so I see this as being no more dangerous than that... actually a little safer by having the hidden "kill all" switch.

I guess I should have said toggle switch, the one on the control module.

My keys are in the ignition all the time too, but it seems more likely that someone might push a button rather then turn a key by accident is all.

And if they do?? Same thing happens with the key as the button. Safety switch in the shifter does not allow for cranking while in gear. Worst thing that could happen is the motor purrs to life and those on the swim platform get a healthy plume of exhaust! :D
