Kill switch (fuel pump)

Postby belanger33 » Wed Apr 10, 2013 11:55 pm

Hi,

I would like to know briefly the process in making a kill switch in order to make the car not start. Something simple!
I know alarm systems exist but i only want something that would stop people that would try to steal the car to start the engine.

Thanks for your time and info!

The easy way, is to find the power wire running to the fuel pump (under the rear seat), and add a switch in series with that wire. When the switch is off, the car won't start. I've heard of people wiring it to be near the seatbelt, so that they can subtley switch it on/off when the take the seatbelt on/off.

This should get you going too, especially regarding how to hook up relays.

Thanks for the tip, i'll have to take off the rear seats to see the wire as you mentionned. The seatbelt option is quite interesting!
