Re: Ignition kill switch ideas?
Problem(s) with chaining the steering wheel....
-A $2 hacksaw from WallyWorld will cut the steering wheel in about 10 seconds (chain then useless)
-$20 boltcutters from Northern will take care of any padlock able to lock a "big chain" chain (see above)
-Thief or vandal can still START the Jeep and cause damage to it & other vehicles (guess who's still responsible...ask my boss)
-"Big Chain" rapidly scratching the pi$$ out of everything it touches (Squids use chains to remove paint on ships)
I'm faced with the same issue...key switch "pickable" by 5 y/o with nail clippers, non-locking steering column, high profile beater in neighborhood, no door locks, and cops won't give a rats A$$ if the punks took/trashed it. In my case, a cutout switch/circuit and a way to disable column shifter & steering is needed. Still pondering ideas at this point.
