i installed the push start button and a toggle switch on my car this weekend. the toggle switch puts the car on in run mode but the car wont start without the key in since the key is chipped. once the key is in the car starts.
If i do not turn the key and click it once , the steering remains locked, so i have a car with the engine on but cant steer. I am afraid if my cylinder lock freezes now, i can start my car but wont be able to unlock the wheel and thats why want to do this.
if i turn the key stick the wire and take it out, that will be fine, but the question is do i have to do that everytime i put the key in ? I wanna freeze my damm cylinder in run mode....lol
anyways , at work now, shal try this tonight

I've got a feeling that the steering lock is mechanical, not electric...so cutting a wire won't help. I think that there's a pin in the locking cylender that is mechanically pulled out of some sort of hole when you move the key into the start position. If that's the case, then you'll need to find a way to cut off that pin to disable the steering wheel lock feature.
