I want to put a kill switch on my car. Where and which wire should I put it on? I assume it will be in the fuel pump wiring, but where is the best place to access this and which wire would I put the switch on?

Thanks

Personally, I would fit the kill switch somewhere in the ignition wiring. Possibly the ecu ground wire. I don't know y you want one-see rrhunt29 above- but if it's to foil thieves then this would prevent the car being "bump started" (Brit phrase, I don't know what you call this procedure in the US).
Works best with MTX but doesn't mean you can't do it to ATX

Theres a big difference between real drivers and those who just hold a licence.

ok in from my experience and opinion, the best thing you can do to keep your car safe form thieves is. Get a "proffesional" multy lock EITH a kill switch on it. I had this on a millenia it will not start (not even with your key) untill you take the lock "totally" out. Just make sure they hide the Metal plate somehow, mine was inside the floor console so it was (the metal brace) totally hidden from view.

If thieves wanted your 6 that bad they will get it no matter what you install in it. I have read about thieves using a flatbed and transporting the car away.

The 6 isn't that sought after anyways. I love my 6 but it is not a targeted vehicle "Gone In Sixty Seconds" style.

The nice thing about owning a 6 is that they are not a dime a dozen like Dodge Caravans. They are not common at all. In other words, stealing a 6 isn't good for the parts market.

Most thieves are opportunists looking for a quick grab. A kill switch won't prevent thieves from stealing things from your 6. Use common sense and don't leave anything out.

A lot of times people forget to use their antitheft measures like when they drop off a DVD or pop into 7-11 and that's when it happens. That's what happened to my buddy and her Jeep. Got a little lazy, didn't use her Club, and gone ... in 60 seconds.

I don't understand why my 6 was stolen then. 3 days ago, from Montreal. It was in the driveway. I have no idea how they've done it. It had an Anti-theft and a Mazda installed alarm.

Roxette - Joyride. Give these punks the opportunity and they take it. They probably drove the hell out of it and trashed it. Sorry dude.

What my quote meant was that it more than likely wasn't stolen for parts.

I've been told that it could've been taken to replace a completely damaged car from Canada or the US, they swap the VINs and resell it.
I hope not to find it trashed..
