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

There are some car alarm based "kill switches" that prevent ignition etc but Im not really sure if thats what you're going for. I had one in my old Probe that if I hit the kill switch the car would run for about 3 or 4 more minutes then die and not start again without doing some reset sequences.

I don't mean from an alarm, I mean putting a toggle switch on the fuel pump wires.

What is your goal for this kill switch. To prevent car from starting or to shut off car. If it was to prevent it from starting, wouldn't you be better off to put it on the starter. Another thing, if you're trying to prevent startup, it should be that hard, just don't use your key with the chip.

I want to flip the switch when I get out to make it so the car cannot be cranked at all. Yes, I know about the factory "kill" switch. Didn't even have to read the manual to know about it. So back to what I asked, which wire?

A kill switch can easily be found, because your going to mount it in an area that is conveniant to you, so that you always remember to flip it off when you exit and do not have to go too far to flip it back on when you get back into a car.

Easily overcome, while a detachable steering wheel is not.

If that's what you want to do, I suggest putting it on the starter wire. The car cannot be cranked then. Otherwise the car will crank forever and not start because you only cut the power the the fuel pump. Does that make sense to you. About the wire I don't know cuz haven't thought of doing such a thing. Good luck!

Well put the kill switch on the battery for crying out loud, that way nothing will work... I am still not sure I get the point. The factory kill switch would involve tons of work to try and outsmart, and you want to put a switch in that any car theif could find in less than 5 minutes?
