that is how it is in my truck, I just turn the key, let it go and it cranks until it starts
now this would really only be useful for boats that are injected I would think
so a no accessory, push once to start the motor turning over and it turns over until it starts
That would be cool and I would like to do it like that, but... there is no "engine running" feedback. So, you need to hold until it fires. I could do a momentary push and then crank for x seconds, but I just don't think it would be reliable across all the different engines that are out there.
I expect your truck senses the tach so it knows when its running then cuts off the starter.
