I believe any shop which does installation of car-security systems should know how to do this.

Preset sequence using the brake and throttle pedals, apart from a couple of hidden switches which are normally used for creature-comfort accessories otherwise. Using Neptune EMS on my "standalone" Honda ECU.
I believe switch does not comes with any installation guide meaning which point for what. Is it that simple as pulling 3 wires from key ignition and attaching it to 3 terminals of button? or something more complex?

Taking off the steering-mounted ignition setup will be a difficult park as i dont know how to do it for my spark.

Please confirm if peddle password is a added security and not mandatory and can you please post some pics of wiring?

I did not take pictures of the wiring. A multimeter is your best friend if you want to DIY.

Pedal and switch password protection is the only security as key-insertion is not required and without the password protection, anyone could just be able to break one of the windows, get in and drive away. At the end of the day, my system is probably more secure than a regular car because 1) nobody expects something like this 2) the wiring is completely custom 3) even if a thief were to get his own Honda ECU and connect that directly to my car, the car wouldn't run half-well because of my ITBs setup.

If you decide to go through with this, plan about the rest of the security in advance. And I do not know of other standalone engine management systems having this feature, let alone something for a Chevy Spark. The original post was to only show you that this is possible. Without the password though, it's just inviting robbery.

You are right , Without the password though, it's just inviting robbery. I never thought about this aspect before. Even not sure if such security feature exists in spark.

However planning to source push button in mean time as it takes atleast a month to reach.

Further implementation really needs to be researched in depth.

I thought tata was introducing one as OE eqpt. What's its purpose, and why is it hidden?

Wow! That is neat! I just wish the button to be placed on the top part of the dashboard (the void between the instrument console and the right AC louvre would be perfect). Nice find Sir.

Seeing the thread's title and the "scoop-master" as the author, i was also of the same opinion. Sid, does it work?

20,000 bucks? These are available on ebay.com for 20-30$ a pop.

This can probably be a keyless start, if not it is sheer wastage of money. What purpose then this gives.

Try to find out the real purpose and use.

I saw a push-button start key fitted in a Maruti Swift. The car belonged to the manager of an aftermarket shop in Chennai. It looked very similar to the Nissan Micra button. I enquired about its cost, they told it cost Rs.8k. And it is not even keyless start. I discovered the possibility of such a mod, but found it expensive for its worth.

Anyone else who have tried this?
