Hello Everyone

I want to hook up a kill switch for a '96 Toyota Camry. I know this is a relatively simple

thing to do. But I just don't know where to hook up one kill switch wire to the area

where the wire from the distributor goes to the starter location. And where the other kill

switch wire goes (plus or negative side of battery). Could someone please help.

I would also like to know is there a certain gauge of wire I should use.


Please be very specific.

THANKS

I am going to take a picture of the starter, area where I think the kill switch hook-up goes and attempt to post it here.

Maybe someone can tell me what to do from the pictures.

OK. I tried, but I couldn't find out how to post pics here. My HTML is 'off' in my profile. Should I have it 'on' in order to post pics?

Would someone tell me?

THANKS!

Theres a black/white wire under the column should be about 10 gauge, you need to cut this and put a switch in-line (one that can handle about 30-40A, or a relay) This will kill the starter on demand by flipping the switch.

Why an alarm system? My alarm kills the starter when I arm the truck.

I actually put a kill switch in a co-workers car because neighborhood kids used the spoof-key trick on him and went for joy rides in it.

Easy fix that detours almost all kids and most adults, manual choke. I have one on my truck and there are very few that know what the knob does or even how to use it.

I was thinking for security purposes..but I was second guessing myself because a switch seems pretty obvious...might deter some dumb folks, though...

Its a key that has all the teeth cut to the full extension. Also known as a bump key.

not "Anything". Chipped keys wont work (theres another trick for those heh heh heh). It's easy to use them on 90's GM's.

Any of the older vehicles. Newer vehicles have RF tags in the key or some sort of electronics in the key to prevent someone from picking the lock.

I would recommend not putting a kill switch on the starter. You can use a bump key to get the key into the on position and then jump the solenoid to the starter. The starter will turn and start the motor. If it's a manual transmission it can be roll started. I would put the kill switch inline with the power to the distributor. No spark in the engine, it's not going to run.
