Kill switch question: which would be better, to interrupt the battery or the ignition? IMO, the ignition interrupt would be better.

Kill switch, wired into the harness to interrupt the power to the coil. It'll crank but never fire. Hide the switch somewhere out of sight. Total investment will be in the $10 range & no one needs to ever know about it but you.

here is an even better one wire a kill switch to your door lock button! u wire it up so that the only way the truck will start is if your holding the lock switch down! if u dont have power locks u can use the blicker, or if your not a smoker and dont use the cig lighter that works too!

if u need help and for the wireing of it let me know i can get it all for u no problem!

How would that work? Wire it inline from the lock switch to the ignition? I've never even heard of these kill switches.....

we did them alot when i lived in SC its really not that hard! your using the lock wire to trigger a relay in turn reconnects the wire so it will start!

u could use the starter wire, fuel pump wire or the ignition box wire!

i would prob use something other than the starter wire though! sence that would be to easy for them to get around


but if u would like to do it i will tell u what u need and how to do it!

Sounds great, until someone else has to drive the vehicle, like for an emissions test or safety inspection, or possibly where you've been hurt out in the middle of nowhere & someone else has to drive your vehicle out. I'll stay with my hidden switch that kills the coil power, at least I can allow others to drive the vehicle without giving away my secret security system.

thats why i like the cig lighter one. as long as the cig lighter is in the truck will run fine but take it out and dead in the water. u can use it to inerupt the coil wire aswell and it will outlast a toggle switch.

You don't want these kinda things posted on the net Andrew

I've got several defeat switches all over my bronco, two of which kill the ignition and the fuel pump relay.

There are new silent alarms out that send a signal to your keyfob and vibrate it, so you get the message in the theatre and they don't know it's being sent.

THAT'S ! WHAT YOU WANT ! after you're kill switches are installed.

Cheapest way to go is just pull your coil wire off. I know its a pain to open the hood each time but hey! it works!! Hulio, Juan, Ignacio, ect. isnt going take the time to pop the hood and see if he can find whats wrong!!

You're right Six. It kind of defeats the purpose of having something like this if it's on the net how to do it. My bad.

If someone steals my shit I'll hunt them down and chain them by the ankles then take them for a little drag into the desert never to be seen again. ****in' theives. It's funny that only around 100 years ago we would hang a person for stealing a horse and today someone can live out there years after committing murder. The f'n worlds gone crazy.
