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.

Yeah, unfortunately the the supplier I was getting the base PCBs from no longer stocks them so I have to go with another supplier and they are $10 more . I won't change the price until I'm through the first batch though.

could you pull signal from the tach so that it knows that it fires?

Yes I think so, I haven't tried that though. My boat's gauges all use a digital signal so I don't have an actual "tach" signal in the dash. I'm not sure what year MC went to digital gauges, but it might have been when they went from MEFI 4 to MEFI 5.

As much as I’d like to install one, the first time I got behind the boat and my wife pushed the button too long or too short, I can predict the same argument we still have over her operation of the satellite remote. The ignition key has worked perfectly in our marriage the last 24 years.

tr6courg...I see that there is an opportunity for a custom programming charge for not default features...

Ha Ha, I don't mind doing small changes to press-timing or OFF vs. ACC, etc.

Thanks for all the ideas

I posted a video of the button start. I didn't actually start it because I was on the driveway at the time. First press goes to ACC, second press to ON, then Start, then to OFF. This was before I changed it to go to ACC from running.

I'm in. Great idea and appreciate the discount and clear information

I will order early next week and if possible, i would like the original timing program with the option of 1 short push while running to bring me to ACC and one long push while running to take me to off (if this is possible)

I'm assuming you want order to come through website and not through PM on TT?
