Somebody needs to figure out if flick start can easily be added using OEM parts. My parent's Sequoia and brother's 4runner has it.

I don't know if it involves programming in the ECU or if a simple ignition switch/lock cylinder?
What is "flick start?"

You put the key in the ignition and only have to turn it to activate the starter for about 1/2 second. The starter continues by itself until the motor starts.

Also known as bump start.

Seems like a lot of work.

Wouldn't work very well with the MT and clutch cancel switch.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

My MT doesn't have a clutch cancel switch and the clutch switch isn't connected. Came that way from the factory...

You might be surprised how simple something like this could be. Remove the FJ part and bolt in the 4runner part sorta deal. I just don't know how this feature works mechanically. It cranks for a set amount of time.

What a cool idea. I've never even heard of it.

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

I think you're right. Sounds like auto-start without the remote portion. So it should be even simpler without the radio portion.
I know an aftermarket auto-starter on one car was tied into the ignition switch relays. (When there was a recall on the key switch assembly the dealership wouldn't reconnect the auto-starter under the recall ticket or a separate service request).
The auto-start control module must have a predetermined (adjustable?) closure period on the starter relay. You would also need the control module to close the ON circuit so things keep running but I'd think that's all you'd need to replace the key with a switch.

On the other hand, a lot of things seem simple Ĺ hour job then you find yourself turning off the lights in aggravation 12 hours later and going to bed wondering how many days it'll take to finish.
