Default Re: Kill switches

Rohmell's idea is a good one. I've used the same concept in reverse as an anti-theft device in cars for years. I use a 1/4" mono phone jack and recepticle wiring it into the electric fuel pump circuit. With the plug in, the circuit is made but pull the jack out and the engine will start and run for as long as there's fuel in the carburetor but then, that's all she wrote. That would probably get a would-be thief just into traffic before the engine died and left him very obvious and dead in the water.
I mount the recepticle in a hidden, out-of-the-way place so it's not obvious and carry the phone jack in my pocket with my keys.
