Push button was used in vehicles earlier than the 1970's when ignition switches had not been invented. I don't find anything special about that and if you have money to burn, nothing wrong too.

The key switch in my explorer only works just to power the fuel pump and everything else wouldnt turn the starter so I rigged a few wires here and there and got it to turn with the push button I plan on adding more auxiliary stuff to it soon

I was thinking you wanted to rig the switch to make it for ego's sake.

If you don't want to change the bad ignition switch, that is the next best alternative.

The reason my camaro had a horn push button to start it wasnt because the parts wernt available it was because they didnt know how to diagnose the problem and that was there way of fixing it.
