This is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I can just picture myself not turning the switch back on and bouncing my forehead off the steering wheel when I try to restart the engine.

After doing a little research, all of the push button shift knobs I've found are normally open switches, so I will have to use some sort of relay, or replace the switch in the knob. Personally, I'd rather use a relay. I think this can be done for approx. $50 depending on the price of the push button shift knob. The other option is to install a momentary switch somewhere else and save money, but I really favor the convenience of having the switch where my hand is already.
