Installing a hidden fuel cutoff switch to help keep your entire car from disappearing:

Ghetto immobilizer?

OR

Simple, effective, so ... why not?

It's a Ghetto Immobilizer... cheap and effective and stopping/slowing the Ghetto thief, which is probably 95% of the thieves that you will ever encounter.

These days "professional" thieves aren't going to jack your car...they'll back up to the driveway and yank it onto a flat bed and drive away with it in one piece. They don't wanna mess around deactivating your anti-theft devices in your driveway and risk getting caught. They'll dismantle your car at a safer location.

Yeah, if someone wants your car bad enough they will get it. An old issue of honda tuning said somthing about a guy that worked for the mag, or was just helping them out. anyway he had a integra type r. mad alarm systems, fuel cutoff and he even took the ecu out since it would be out of sight for a few hours. came back and it was gone, never to be seen again.

Make sure you solder the connections! I did this mod way back in the day before I knew better and I just used crimp connections. One day, the fuel pump kicked out while I was driving because the connections came loose.

It may seem ghetto,but any theft deterrent is better than nothing.
I wired up a crank signal interrupt switch and hid the switch somewhere.
It works great when I use it...thats when I dont forget.hehe

I installed a $600 remote-paging alarm in my girlfriend's special edition... and I'll be damned if I don't have to twist her arm to get her to use it all the time! Grrr! Lesson learned here...anti-theft devices are only effective if you *use* them.

i haven't yet done this, but will eventually have something setup (i'd like to have a start button for my car, so i plan to use this along with a start button, but we'll see)

thanks
