Product Code: KEY-SWITCH

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.

Toddler loves having his own "keys"! April 9, 2018
Reviewer: Darrin Lee from Ewa Beach, HI United States  
Well made product.  Reasonably priced and feels "solid." Easy to install.   Don't recommend putting in the existing "key column" on Power Wheels as I couldn't tighten the nut on the back, so recommend put it in the dash instead if you have Power Wheels.  Only minor issue was wires are short (said 12" but only about 8" actually... but I've done a lot of mods had extra heavy gage wire leftover anyways.

Easy to install October 25, 2017
Reviewer: Anthony Blubello from RIDLEY PARK, PA United States  
This is a very easy install and as an added bonus without the key NO ONE can start the car.  Now I don't have to worry about them plugging the battery in and driving off.

Reviewer: Vincent Hunter from Rensselaer, NY United States  
This is a nice heavy duty key switch. It can carry all the current just fine and make the ride more realistic for your kid. My son loves it!
