Just a suggestion. I have a kill switch hooked up to my EL XR8 manual, it requires no more switches or anything, It is hooked up to the reverse lights, so the car has to be in reverse for it to go. Mine is hooked up to the started motor, so unless your in reverse she wont turn over.

Just a suggestion. When im getting it serviced stumps my mechanic every time. Quite funny really.

FINGER PRINT SCANNER is ur option. put it anywhere obvious....the thief would still wont be able to steal it :P or an electronic combination lock instead of a switch. but that might just cost a fair bit more.

anyways back on topic. u can put the switch in the glove box. or outside the car ;) so before u get in the car u kick a switch (hopefully a heavy duty one). i dont think people look outside for a kill switch but u know wiring it from the inside all the way outside would require more work. just an idea though.

but honestly.....u should think of an idea of urself of where it goes instead of askin or people will be able to find out and get ideas for when they steal someones car

phong =P~

its a manual lol, and i think he would remember to put the clutch down :P

my uncle has a mad one in his pajero, wat it is is that there's something wrong with the ignition and the key only works 1/4 of the time...the rest he has to crawl under the car and put a piece of battery cable connecting the starter motor to some other cable to get the car to turn over

earth the coil out to the ciggerette lighter, take the lighter with you when you leave the car, coil has no earth, and doesnt start. Put the lighter back in the slot and start the car once you jump back in.

Dont know if this would work, read about it somewhere..

I like the idea of this switch, you have to hold a magnet up to the dash to be able to start it.
