Just cut ur fuel pump wire, add a switch and use 15+ amp switch/wires.
I think its the Black and yellow line going from the drivers kick panel to the pump motor itself.

This is prolly the easiest way and also gives you a little head start if your snoozing and you hear your car start... and 5 seconds later it stops! with a "wtf? thief" .. by this time u've grabbed ur package and running out the door to snap some malaka!

Or cut into the smartlock wire (group of four going into the ignition lock barrel). Won't get anything.

ROFL i love that quote "snap some malaka!" altho i prefer the term, "beat to a bloody pulp" and if you want u can cut the pink ignition cable and put a switch in there and u wont get power on ur car to start it until u flick the switch, its in the main loom going up to your ign lock area :P

hahaha

under fuse box and steering column is also a theifs first choice. I did the switch to the fuel pump trick and the car still was stolen.

I'd attempt to tap into the auto gearbox inhibitor switch circuit, drill a small hole thru the cup holder area (under that little pad that sits there) and mount a switch there.

or get hardcore, splice in a reed switch into ign/ecu pwr/fuel pump pwr and keep the magnetic part on your person (make it easily detachable from your keyring). Some theives carry small jumper cables to just short your switch or whatever out...if they want it bad enough they'll have it. Also think about a fake LED alarm flasher thingo as well.

I reckon you go to the wreckers, get a aerial full / half height switch + facia, stick it in below the demister switch and hook it in there...

That way it looks factory and isn't immediately obvious....
