sorry its taken soo long guys... work has been a b**ch lol


right today i had a look and the pin that it goes to in on the middle row behind the ecu 2nd in from the right... its a orange and green wire

by the look of the wiring and how it was wired up.. it would cut the wire when switched off.

u could also remove the switch and conect the wire with the fittings on each end.

thew switch was impossible to find unless u pulled the whole interior out. it was behind the interior next to the stereo on the drivers side.

the switch was small and on a small metal bracket.



we wouldve tried flicking it while it was running but the car is dead now. and dead when me mate found the switch.



so what is this switch for?

If you had flicked it, the car might not have been dead anymore LOL

Extra security, thats why the switch was so well hidden, basically a manual immobilizer.

I totally agree with the fuel cut out or even some dodgy attempt at a shift kit. Like previously said its not like the 5-0 have owned it for a fair while it could be anythin!!!
