Default 12V help

Hi all,

I realize I am propably on the wrong forum, but anybody with a little electrical experience should be able to help me.

I am trying repower a piece of equipment with a new engine, and
wanting to have two ignition switches. The new engine has a 5 wire
ignition switch in a control box that is mounted to the side of the
engine, but I would like to add a second switch that will be
close to the operator to start the engine remotely. I don't think piggy backing the switches will work. Would I need a relay?

I am going to try to post a pic of the wiring diagram, with the control box on
the side. I am trying to add the remote switch to this system. How
should I do this?
