I have a momentary switch, that you have to hold up to keep crossed on. I want to use it as a starter. But finding the right wire is trickey. I'm assuming it'* the thicker wires ontop of the column instead of the wires in a ribbon on the bottom.

Would it be best to just splice into the wires @ the fuse panel?

It'* probably easier to tap into the wires at the column. This guy just had his open, you ought to ask him.

Right; all the, um, hotwiring necessary in your setup is just to momentarily jumper one of the fat red wires to the equally-fat light-yellow wire, which cranks the starter. If your key is in the ignition in the On position, I believe that'* _all_ your Big Red Button needs to do.
