I am trying to figure out a way to have the engine work off a toggle switch... since my car got stolen I want to place a secret switch somewhere in my car so the next time some one tries to start it,it wont start.

The fuel pump wire enters the car behind the passenger foot panel. You could put a switch near there.

Yep, you can wire in a switch on the FP circuit.....heck, the wire is so easy to get under the rear bumper, when you park it you can just unplug it from there....

Question

Did the car have a working Pass Key II system?

You would have to put a switch on the batt. or fuel pump and hide it.

Inline switch to PCM power would kill everything; fuel pump, ignition, injectors...

Use a trick starter switch instead of the key.
Wire it so that when you turn the key to 'start'
nothing happens. A thief will give up at that point. No one will know what switch starts the car. You could install your own push-button starter switch run to a relay.

Don't tie it to killing power to the PCM; you'll dump all your 'learns' - unless that is a good thing for you.

My IAC count goes to default and causes an 'after warm up first full stop idle' issue that takes about to week to work out after PCM power loss and memory dump.

Sounds to me the easiest solution is a fuel pump interrupt circuit with a conveniently located hidden switch.

How about something that sends a death ray out to the tow truck trying to grab it, since so many are abducted that way? [img]graemlins/.gif[/img]

The FP sw. sounds easy. For 10 years using a CLUB 100% of the time (it takes 7 seconds and I do it even at Quikshops) plus parking nose out has been lucky for me so far.

But I'll be adding on something else now since these rides have to be getting more and more 'lusted after' by more daring creeps as they get rarer.
