^^^riptide101 said:I don't know about the new preludes but I have a forth gen. If you look at the steering column, you have four positions. 0, I, II, III. 0 is when you put the key in. I is when you apply power to the radio, cigerette lighter, etc. II is when you apply power to everything and environmentals work (air condition, heat). III is what the button actuates which makes the starter work which starts the car. In a forth gen, you turn the key to II and push the button.
