The main thing I'd be wary of is pressing the button when the car is already running, especially when you're driving along and changing gears etc.

You could (if you wanted a foolproof solution) set up a little circuit so that the button only works when the car is not on. You'd have to take a tachometer signal, or something like that and stick a normally closed relay in there.... probably with some kind of delay so the button doesn't cut out as soon as the starter turns the engine over.

Is there a good reason you can't type the English language? This is not chat, AIM or text messaging. It does not make you look cool or smart by typing gibberish. Standard English is the official langauge of Car-Forums and your are expected to use it like the rest of us.
