Something no one has noticed? Ignition Switch.

It seems that in all this talk about the Camaro, nobody has said anything about the keyless start...curious, I am, on the thoughts of those around me.

I'd say it's quite possible, too.

As long as they make it work on a manual - as in a shut-down sequence that makes sure the car know its in neutral or else it won't work. Unless they have 6-speed paddle shifters... either way... remote start FTW!

Keyless start would be great, but idk if remote start from outside the vehicle will be offered on a manual. Who knows, they may still do it!

Ive owned a remote start, they are nice in extreme climates (was in Alaska for 8 years, just leave the heater on and start the car 15mins before you leave) and the opposite extreme Arizona for the AC. Personally though its just not worth the extra money and I wont get one again, its nifty though to start it up with someone next to the car going "what the hell theres nobody in the car!!?!?!?". I can see it being an available option though, if it is not just do what people in Alaska do, have the dealer install it as an after market item.

PS- Nobody in the country will install one on a manual, there was a lot of litigation about it because several people were killed in Alaska due to and autostart/remote start on a manual in gear running people over. If your planning on a manual I would count out the remote start.

That's what I meant by a shut-down sequence. The one I know of has you leave it in neutral, turn the key and pull it out, get out of the car and push the 'lock' button to shut off the engine and lock the car. Then, when you push 'start', the unit knows you're in neutral and will allow the car to start. That's what I want, but I read the first post wrong, and thought everyone was talking about remote start, not push-button start. I'm a fan of both.

Ignition switches

They have already said we wont have the "normal" ignition switch with the butterfly, which is fine with me as long as the put a KEY switch on the dash or something. I dont know how everybody else feels, But I DONT want push button start that a lot of cars are coming with these days. Especially if its like the ones that you hit the button and it does the rest. If its goin to be push button at least be simple like a race car and it only cranks untill you let off the button. Not before, and not after. Any thoughts on this?

personally I'd love to have an aircraft switch to start (insert a keycard or little chip, lift up the red rocker, flip the switch to crank the engine), but that's not gonna happen.

From what the magazine editors have had to drive, it's a push button but it looked like he held the button in until the car started, so I don't know what it's going to end up as. Considering no info has been released and I'm just going off of a video I saw online, it's really just speculation right now. Same with the air bags in your other post.

<---- havnt got to watch the videos thanks to dial up.... too far out in the country for cable. A hold till it starts push button would be ok with me as long as there is some kind of lock as well. thanks for the reply mindz, nice artwork btw.

Welcome to the site as well!

Personally, I'd love to see the push button start. I didn't know there were different types. I'd just like to push the button and have it crank over...hold the button till it starts. That's a sure fire way to keep the scratches off of the dash from missing with your key over and over....:(

Push button start FTW! Unless it drives cost up too much and then I'm okay w/ a key....

I don’t know if a push button start would be good for me. I would most likely sit in my driveway and shout “Gentlemen start your engines” over and over again as I push the start button… Note to self, first part to wear out on new Camaro, starter button…

lmfao at killer I could see that too. i hear where your comin from tag, bout the scratches. What I was talking about was the push button start setups that you tap the button and it cranks itself as long as it needs or whatever. You just tap it to let it "know" that you want it to start. If its like a real setup where you push the button an hold it then that'll be fine with me too. I still want some kind of lock other than a remote.

Personally I would love the race car rocker switch that would be pretty ba and pretty cheap helping keep the cost down. However i dont see that as an option. I like the push till it starts button, just pushing a button and letting the car decide when it has cranked enough dosent sound like a good option possibly burning out the starter over time.

I'm all for the push button. We have them in our M915 Freightliner tractors. It you turn the key, and push the button until it starts. Plus it's cool having a big red "start" button.

Afs and Chevynut-- My thoughts exactly That style in the rig is what im thinking, and Chevynut, nail hit square on the head. Letting it decide how long and when after jus tapping it, more stuff to break/wear out. Not safe if you trying to work on it and jus need to bump it over. What about animals or whatever that might crawl up in the engine bay. etc etc, i could go on. Anybody who works on their own cars, im sure we could come up with many more reasons why not. I dont take my car to the shop for anything other than tires and alignments, and thats going to change soon too, i just dont want anybody elses hands under the hood of my car. Thats gonna be hard while the new ones under warranty. I'll have to find a dealership that will let me stand right there while somethings being fixed/recalled.

i doubt it, the "backyard mechanics" have updated right along with the cars of today. I may not have ASE master certs hanging on my walls, I may not work for a dealer. But I DO own my own shop. I work on things everyday that most shops around here wont even look twice at. Not all backyard/shadetree mechanics are backwoods rednecks..... though I have seen my share of them...... but on a happier note, The Chevy dealer I get my parts from here is always takin me out to the shop for whatever and lettin me look around/hang out. I have a few friends there though only a couple of them know I own a shop. But as far as do it yourselfers fading away.... There will always be someone learning the new tricks and trades. Technology isnt limited to trained professionals. My dad was GM ASE Master certified and now comes to me when they have a problem with their cars. I started rebuilding cars at the age of 12. So I dont plan on being my father and only going up to a certain level then getting out of it, I plan to stay in the business untill our children take over when im rollin around in a chair. But on a side note to that, the backyard mechanics will also change generations and a new generation will take on the newer technology as well. There will always be shadetree mechanics. I personally look up to several of them, they often know as much...or even more than a lot of "shops" or dealers these days. Certainly more personable than most "professionals" Its life to them, not just business. ---end rant--- sorry but being a shadetree for most of my life got me where I am today and am much much better off than every one around me a few years ago ever imagined. i tend to stick up for the little guys or the ones trying to make an honest living doing what they know how to do. Im sure im not the only one on here that can relate to this. Keep up the faith Chevynut, its not that technologically advanced. just have to study a little more.

Ford of tomorrow... still having throttle problems.... bailin wire and a little more ductape and hes almost got it workin again... see, theres still hope for tomorrows shadetrees.... things can only advance so far untill theres really no where else to go with it.... at least in our lifetimes. But there will be someone else to take it over when we cant.
