do not put a switch on the power wire as it draws wayyyy to much power for a switch. Its easy to hook up but hiding the switch is the hard part i have them on every car and use them all the time.

The answer is the same as the last time you asked it ... Use the switch to kill the fuel pump relay .... If you don't have one install a 30 amp fuse in the line ...

well i found the fuel pump "relay" i guess, cause theres a fuse panel under the hood and there is one for the fuel pump. but i dont think its a fuse cause it its just a little black box sorta thing and i dont wanna pull it out if im not supposed to.

so what should i do?
is that it?

you have to get the schematic for the cruiser and find the wire that feeds the relay coil... put the kill switch in the line to stop 12 volts from turning it on

Ive thought about doing this, even with my alarm its nice to have some added protection... epically for those iffie neighborhoods. Aside from that reason Chrysler's are easy to steal and a good thief can work around an alarm without much problem.

You can also kill the IGNITION or the STARTER as well and the same way .. I've installed a 2 way switch in the ignition line one way it starts the other way IF they attempt to start it , the siren under the dash comes on biglaugh.gif biglaugh.gif I'm betting that will make them crap their pants puppy_dog_eyes.gif

^ That seems to make a lot more sense than putting the switch on the fuel pump to me.

It should be easy to find with a voltmeter ... If you remove the relay and put the car into the second position on the key it would be the wire that gets the 12 volts , Then look underneath and find the wire color that feeds that leg and then :

1) Trace back to inside the car and splice in the switch there

2) cut and splice under the hood and run 2 wires back into the car and install the switch
