The new color options are Blue with Yellow Logo, Red with Black Logo and Yellow with Blue Logo. He is making them available for $1.25 each. You can order yours via his Order Form or you can discuss them in this Thread. All proceeds from Koozie sales go into future SWAG production and event sponsorship.

    It's a 2016 so the push button was an option. I was a car stereo/alarm installer so I'm very familiar with wiring and diagrams...but out of date on all the new "digital" relays and so, in order to do the ON/OFF via low-level signals.

    It really will depend on your wiring. If you have a twin engine then likely very much like my diagram if only one engine then delete one start and one stop relay. If you are looking for single button start/stop then you will need a logic controller or complicated latching setup with a reset switch in case of a failure to start. I really like the programmable timer relays for their simplicity of wiring and multitude of functions. I bet you will figure it out once you figure out what your ignition wires do.

    i was just curious since you posted a link to a new timer/relay...I thought maybe you had some new experience with that new one to do the ON/OFF via one button....anyway, you have given me a new project! LOL

    Ahh the new one is the same as the other. Basically that same board along with a bunch of others are mass produced in China and then a bunch of companies sell them. Sainsmart has better documentation than most and the documentation is usually available on their website.
