Description
 
Bring another level of fun and realism to your ride-on. And get an extra level of control over the use of your kid's car. The car will not start without the key inserted and turned.

Installation is simple. Drill a hole to fit the key housing within 12 inches of where the battery lead passes. Most cars can put them to the right of the steering wheel and tap into the wires under the dashboard. Insert the key housing and tighten the nut. With the battery unplugged, cut either the positive or negative battery lead... either one. Not both. Strip 1/4" of insulation from the ends of the wires. Insert into the housing key wires and crimp. Color doesn't matter.

Key start works with 12v, 18v, or 24v systems. Never turn the key while depressing the gas pedal as it is bad for the housing and for controlling the car.

Kit comes with everything you need including 2 keys, 12" of heavy gauge wire, and crimp connectors. Simple instructions in the video linked on this page.

5 of 5 Switch with big fancy key is installed April 23, 2022
Reviewer: Russell, Retired maintenance tech from Kingston, TN United States  
I installed this key switch primarily to keep the kid from running over granddad when connecting the battery. But it’s also good for time-outs. Plus having a big fancy key makes the kids feel empowered.
When I installed it I made the hole small and then used a Dremel by hand to make the hole a D shape like the switch. so the switch can't turn in the hole.  Grandpa’s have lots of time.

Reviewer: Rodney Hook from New York, NY United States  
This seems to work great. But I am blowing fuses right now. I dont think this is the culprit since it has 12 gauge wire and I soldered the connections.  I put this in a dune racer with seat belts. One thing I didnt think of was you need to mount it close enough to the kid for them to reach the key while they are buckled in. So I had to move it.

5 of 5 Keyed switch January 6, 2022
Reviewer: Michael Addington from Gordonsville, VA United States  
The keyed switch is great, when the little one is acting up we just take the key vs pulling the battery and hiding it. Now I did run a relay with indicator led so she knows when the her car is on.
