Push Button Switch as Amp switch

I have a base model with no push button start but in a recent vinyl wrap DIY job i found out how I could replace the blank with the correct switch I found on ebay. The question I have now is how can I wire the push button as a amp switch for my aftermarket amp and sub. Anybody have any ideas?

You would need to replace the switch as the standard is a momentary switch, you need one that when you press in it stays on then you could wire it straight to the blue amp wire on the stereo

I don't think many or any have such one... I have top spec for 2016, and it doesn't have one

Seems to be beyond my knowledge, may use the blanks next to the VSC control instead
