    Push Button Start system installed

    I had the Easygo Smart key system installed in my 2008 vehicle. It adds push button start and a new alarm system. Includes remote start, you can lock/arm, disarm/unlock system from new door handle, and open rear liftgate windwow w/remote. This push button start system works different w/GM vehicles. You have to press the button once to activate it, then press the brake pedal and push the button again to start the vehicle. With the vehicle in park, just hold the button for 2-3 seconds to turn off the engine. I missed having push-button start on my Lexus so once I found out about this system I decided to give it a try. So far it works pretty good.

    With tax and labor it's about 1k. I had a local shop install it who is an authorized dealer. You can get the kit alone on amazon for DIY. They cover several different vehicles and models. For escalades get the Yukon/gmc kit.

    Shame on gm for not having this as standard or even available on such an expensive car. Set up looks good, congratulations.

    Have push to start in most of my cars, tell you the truth if you have to carry a fob I would rather have a normal key start, but then again I am old

    Yes, the remote opens the rear access door. For override, if you mean if the remote battery goes dead. You can still use the key, then you hold the remote next to the start button and press the unlock button on the remote.

    Do you only carry one remote and did you give up your factory remote??

    Re: Push Button Start system installed

    Could you please post a couple of side by side pics of the new fob next to the factory fob for comparison?

    Thanks.

    Re: Push Button Start system installed

    Yes, only one remote the new one. I'll post side by side pics later. The remote also slides open and you can carry a spare key that you have to have cut that fits inside for backup.

    ----------

    I tried to post more pics with the side by side remotes but it said I exceeded the quota? Sorry.

    Ahh, no Cadillac remote!?!?!?! Well, we all have our limits. I like the install and the novelty of the system, but not at the expense of my remote. Thats just me though.

    Ok that's awesome! It kills me to think that driving by a Kia that it has more tech then my 2011 Slade.. This should be a standard feather since the body style change or at least 2010.

    Where are you located, just wondering? That's an awesome idea and it looks great.
