Can you bypass ignition switch to starter?

2000 GMC Sonoma, 2.2 auto, There is only 8-9 volts on the start wire on starter solenoid, fried contacts...
Will it hurt anything if I put a separate starter button to feed the solenoid 12 volts to start?

Thanks Bill

Yeah I did. I got a little push button that starts it. I still have to turn. The key tho when starting if I don't the engine cuts out from the anti-theft feature. Got the button nicely hidden and easy to use. Was super easy putting together

Yep, I figured that out right off, previous owner left the trans mount bolts out (not loose) OUT! ..causing a ground problem, replaced bolts, problem solved.
Ain't it interesting following a dummy that has no clue.

Thanks, Bill
