  • Key Start for Ride-Ons

    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 SLA battery systems. Not for use with lithium batteries. 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.

    Installation Videos are in the Product Pictures.

    You could probably get this about anywhere but it's nice to get it from ml toys because you know it's something that I'll work with the power Wheels ride on.

    high quality

    My son loves this key switch. We installed it on his Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler as a master switch that cuts all power from the battery, so he has to start his Jeep every time he drives it.

    Cool but not my favorite

    This works as advertised. Really cool my boy loved it! This is the only one on the market that I have found that can handle 24v 30+Amps. But after thinking through how a two-wire switch works. I decided to remove it. I don't like the idea of the full 24v 30+amp system connect to something my kid can touch. I will have to rethink how this could be used safer.

    Starts Fine

    Needed a bit of drilling in the fake key slot as the plastic inside prevents the fastener ring from. tightening. Overall works great.
