Revert FRS from push to start to regular key ignition

I bought a shell but the previous owner had installed a push to start(easy guard), Iíd like to remove it and put it back to a key ignition would I just have to buy a steering column ignition assembly or do I have to buy all new ECUs and a whole new dash harness, Iím just trying to fix this because the shell was given to me with no keys

Thanks for reading and I appreciate any info!

There might be a key hidden in the steering column to defeat the immobilizer. I had a push start installed on mine for a while and it was not hard to revert. Essentially just unplugged it and respliced a wire in the ignition switch loom that was split. If you can't find a key that works, maybe a locksmith can help you make a new one

Itís missing the part that you actually stick the key into on the column, like the cylinder lock that the key goes in. and I took apart the entire dash looking for the key and have not been able to find it

If that is the case then chances are there is another issue besides that. Get the wire diagram for your car a VOM and start checking.
