When I did run 1 it was hiden. Thats where I had it You can run them anywhere that you don't need to strip half the car to get to it. Do run it somewhere thats not easily found too.

Re: Were do u have your kill switch/s?

Another option I have heard of is to use a reed switch (what is used in building alarm systems to check whether doors are open), mount it behind the dash then activate it by moving something metal in front of it. There is a website "somewhere" that gives a full run-down including wiring diagrams, it was posted on here some time ago.

Re: Were do u have your kill switch/s?

reed swich isn't a bad idea. they more or less work by senceing if there is magnetic near by such as on teh other part of teh door that would be a great idea but were would u keep the magnet when not in use i hae couple of POWER full earth magnets taht would work a treat as a keyring might hook it up to a time controlled realy as well so i wave teh maget next to reed switch, it will open teh realy for 30 seconds to gibe me time to start the car, i could also get this to turn on my alarm led as well so i know teh realy is in.

mmmmmmmm ill have to see what work has stocked lol we should have soem small realsy but i have no idea if any are 12v

For when the natives or other charming individuals decide your car is a taxi or a joy ride. The object is to stop the car running even if ignition lock is forced i.e. hidden switch.
