Vehicle technology advances quickly, even for a mechanism like a car's ignition. Instead of using a key to turn on the car, some vehicles have toggle switches and push buttons for an ignition, requiring proper wiring to function correctly.

Both the toggle switch and push button work together to activate the engine's ignition. The toggle switch readies the car's ignition system when flipped on, and the ignition button activates the ignition.
One of the toggle switches' two contacts requires three wired connections, with one wire connecting to the ignition coil's positive side, another wire to the push button, and a final wire connecting to an ignition light. The other toggle switch contact attaches to 12 volt power from the car battery. Of the two contacts on the push button, one contact connects to the toggle switch, and the other contact attaches to the starting solenoid's positive side.
Before placing the button and switch into the car's dashboard, verify that all wiring is securely attached to the button and switch contacts. A loose connection may affect the performance of the car's ignition system.
