    Base Model Start Button

    US base models have no start/stop button in the middle, but they still have the spot for it there, with the ring around it. To be honest, it annoys the **** out of me having that pretty little button there when it has no purpose. I mean, it could at least light up when the lights are on, and that'd make me happy. SO, we must fix it ourselves my friends.. Has anyone installed any custom mods on it? To make it light up, look better, have a purpose, etc, anything at all? I was looking into making the ring around it light up red, but how hard would that be? It'd be really nice if someone would create a replacement part for it that also made the Veloster writing in the middle to light up..

    Print something out that you can really cut with scissors and paste it on the button spot. It should say on two lines: "press here, turn key". You will FEEL like you have the start button.

    I have had keyless start for 6 or 7 years and I wish I had keyless entry to my house! I'm renting a car soon and dread having to use a key -- thanks for reminding me, maybe I will ask if they can give me a car with keyless start.

    Ya I posted a couple weeks ago in a thread (don't feel like searching for it) where someone asked about opening it up and I thought it would be cool to put some LEDs in there to light up either the ring around it or file down the "Veloster" writing thin enough for light to show through.

    I have not done anything on that yet, haven't had the time to do it. The other person who was talking about it said he was going to open it up and see what kind of power is back there. I don't have time to search for the post as I am at work

    There's space behind it to so whatever you want. It would be so simple to have a light behind it. And wire it in. All the usb and 12v power is right there. The only reason I haven't done it yet is the gray V trim piece that has the vents in it and surrounds the whole center just pulls off. But it's literally welded on. So if you can get that off it's cake after. There's two tiny screw driver slots at the bottom near the push to start that you're supposed to pry it off at. But all that does is bend the black trim under it...so that's how far I was with it like 4 months ago lol

    So are you saying it would not be a wise idea to try and get it off to pursue this mod?

    I would try, but it's just an awkward trim piece to get your hands on and actually get it off. A few members have after market double din radios in their V's, 2 members actually. One took it to a place to get it done and he said they left marks and the other said it came off fine and he did it himself. I've had no luck getting mine off. But it's worth a try

    It really is a great thing to have - it's fast, it's simple, it's technology.

    How big is your budget?

    $30 or so gets you a simple/generic "push to start" button you could place in there.. Still need to turn on with your key.

    And about $250 gets you a full on RFID "smart key/keyless" system with "push to start" button that does not need to have your key in the ignition at all. So your base Veloster can have some gadgets better than the Style/Tech

    No tutorial on how to remove that trim piece?

    I NEED to dim down that orange "pass airbag OFF" warning light.

    There is no budget, i'm willing to spend that $250. What parts, etc would I need for this though and where would I order it? That seems like it would take some serious knowledge of not only the wiring but other delicate hardware that I am not capable of.
