On the 96 would it be ok to run a kill switch from the coil into the interior? would a regular toggle switch work? Would it mess up the coil? There are alot of impalas/caprices getting stolin lately.I really do not want to become another victim Can't afford an alarm system or for my baby to get stolin from some scum bum basted .I also plan on running a switch from the trigger wire going to the starter. Going to hide everything.I want the car set up, so even if they have a key too it, if they don't know, it will not start. Any suggestions, Thanks

The fuel pump wire can be found behind the gloove box. Put a switch on it.

I suggest you take the motor out everytime you park your car... Kill switches i guess they are good for the low budget thieves but its only going to slow down a professional...

The car's factory VATS anti-theft system is already quite good. Of course other stuff can still help a little.

If you're going to attempt to kill the fuel pump, coil, or anything like that, you've got to be super-duper sure of the quality of your work..........a failed connection could have the car shut down on the highway, which would be unpleasant and possibly dangerous.

If you interrupt the starter circuit instead, even if something should go wrong, you'll only be stranded in a parking spot, not on the roadside.

If you're a newbie at mobile eletronics, do some reading at Lots of good stuff there.
