How to Install a Hidden Kill Switch in your Car or Truck (Cheap Anti Theft System)

Instead of installing an expensive car alarm system or using ineffective methods to prevent your car from getting stolen, learn how to install an inexpensive, hidden kill switch.
This kill switch is easy to install and anyone can do it at home with basic tools. It can also work along with your car's current alarm system. How it works is it cuts the power to the fuel pump so you cannot jump start the car, hot wire it, or even push start it. In order to steal the car you need to tow it! It is better than a batter quick disconnect because your computer wont restart and you wont lose your radio stations.

    Chris you should make a video where you add the anti theft system to a car and leave the key inside it and doors unlocked to see if someone would try and steal it. Also have a cop there Incase someone does try and steal it, the cop would bust em right there.

    How do you "pump the gas" with a fuel injected motor? Seriously though, an electronic timer that will keep the gas pressurized for 1 minute or less would really put a would be thief in a spot, about 20-30 feet away from the parking spot. Awkward ... A float bowl full of gas would do that in ancient times.

    have an alarm system in my car (no joke) that will spit out cyanide into the cab if you do not punch in the code after the door is opened. I take the risk by anyone else: well, you're dead. And there are MORE and MORE people starting to do this. I don't care if it kills someone. You die from it, you'll one less criminal off the theft-market. And thieves won't know people are doing this until it's too late and won't be able to do anything.

    Unfortunately they won't need to find your switch. They can just find your tap, but of the new connections and twist back the original wires.

    They'll burnout your starter and battery trying to get it started. Should have killed power to the ignition system all together.

    Bro your wiring skills are horrible. A couple of those wire ends the conductors were bent back and you didn't even get them into the crimp. On another one, your strip was longer than the splice so you had bare wire hanging out. Unacceptable.

    it's even easier if the petrol/gas pump is electric. you then install a momentary push switch and a relay. you start the car and push switch pump works. if you get hijacked you just switch off car and hand over keys.criminals drive off and like half a mile car cuts out and stalls.

    It would also be a good idea to use a switch that will not wear through the shifter boot, a button to press rather than a switch maybe, but the spot great, one problem though, this guy just told everyone where it is.

    I used the idea, but I added a relay that was hooked up the the reverse lights. It means that when I power up the car I have to briefly put it in reverse for this to trigger. As I always park for driving away, this would be counter-intuitive for a thief.
