How to install a push button start on my 1983 Mercedes Benz 300 SD?

How to install a push button start on my 1983 Mercedes Benz 300 SD? Will this make it where I can start my car still if I lost the key or have problem with the starter? If so…this would be wise to install! Thanks

What is the real problem with the car? Is the engine hard to start, or is the key stuck and won’t turn in the ignition? Did you loose the key?

It would be bad to bypass the ignition with a push button, someone could easily steal your car.

Maria Stockstill “Will this make it where I can start my car still if I lost the key” you would have to rewire the ignition lock so that you get the accessory power going which you will still need even if you go for a push button start. So you will still need to have some additional switches installed. “have problem with the starter? “, no. A push button starter still only close the circuit to the starter. It will not resolve any starter issues. Take a look at the wiring diagram for your Benz to see what all happens on it.
