CP 3800 Keypad issues

I've had to replaced the keypad on our instrument several times in the past year. We only need to start/stop the GC because we are acquiring the signal with an Agilent 35900E A/D box and Agilent software. Is there a way to install a simple button/switch to start/stop the GC?

PRSI-LabGuyI believe pins 15 & 22 are the start in and ground pins for the autosampler port. A contact closure on these pins should start it.
