FBH Manual Start Button

Loving my new FBH Manual Start button installed (fitted by me - supplied by Beanie) for those occasions when the Altox App says no signal at the car and its -3 (Car Glowplugs are fubard).

However as pointed out elsewhere there is an anomaly in that after turning on the FBH with the button if you then close the drivers door the FBH will turn off!

I can/will avoid this by leaving the window open and pressing the handy button/light through the window.

Anybody know a way of bypassing this "irritation" just for completeness?

Is the button water proof? Could it be mounted outside? I could do with something like this as I often park where there is a poor signal. My problem is I couldn’t leave it unlocked or a window open where I have a signal problem.

That would fit nicely either in the grill slats or the wing air intake.

Your button appears to be mounted on a D3... which probably does not help.

this looks like a great idea to fit alongside the other bits I have from Beannie - what kind of switch is it? push to make contact or a switch that stays on once pushed?
thanks

It’s a momentary button, so you can change it to whatever you wanted to really.
I think the Altox one has a resister or diode fixed in place, will check tomorrow.
I wouldn’t use the one supplied for any external use as pretty are it’s not waterproof.
