Kill switch

I have a motorcycle ATV kill switch. The type that you attach to your person and if you bail it pulls the plug, stopping your motor.
I am thinking of installing it under my dash as an isolation / kill switch. Would be thieves won't know where to look i'm sure.
My question is where should I splice it into the wiring harness?
Any advice please?
Alfie.

Re: Kill switch

I rigged a kill switch up on an old jeep. I spliced into the main wire coming into the fuse block. Make sure your switch is heavy enough too.

Re: Kill switch

If you look at the fsm, there is a wire that controls most of the engine's electrial power , just splice out that wire below the switch . Just don't forget it's there , and have it towed cause it won't run.....LOL

Re: Kill switch

I looked it up in the fsm, my '88 Samurai manual says the black w/blue tracer wire would work , as it controls most of the electrical system to the ecm and engine .

Re: Kill switch

I've got a question for anyone who's done the "kill-switch-on-the-black/blue-ECM-wire": If you turn on the sami with the key but don't turn on the kill switch, do the idiot lights all light up the same as they would if the kill switch were on, or are some/all of them dead? I don't want to give the thief any diagnostic hints, if you know what I mean.

Any input is appreciated! Thanks,

R

P.S. Oh, and I've come up with the killer location for the kill switch itself, but I'm afraid I can't tell anyone. Sorry!

Re: Kill switch

A combination of things might be required. Both the ignition and the electrical system must be turned off for SUPERRIOR anti-theft (vs one of the two only). Dunno how you would do it though [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Like your avitar, "It's got cop shocks, cop brakes,we got 500 miles to go, a full tank of gas , it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it"

Alf.
Not exact but i'm sure you know who said it all.
