DIY Car Security Killswitch

Welcome to another episode of Mighty Mods now today is all about car security… now its not about elaborate, fancy, expensive stuff its about simple, cheap, effective stuff that you can do at home just to make sure your average idiot doesn’t take off with your ride for example… This guy. Well… There goes the car so as you can see, a kill switch is probably a good idea now we just have to find someone who knows how to put one in. They say he lives off a diet of only terodactyl eggs now we don’t know where he gets them from and we don’t know why all we know is… he’s pretty good with a soldering iron come and meet him. Right, so the materials you need really basic multimeter to find the right wires heat shrink to wrap it up once you’ve done it drill and reamer to make the hole to stick the switch soldering iron to solder it all together 25 amp wire thats to carry enough current to start the car wire strippers and basic tools Okay, so you’ve seen all the stuff you need… lets go The first step is to get to the wires that make up the ignition circuit These are generally located near the ignition barrel If someone is going to take the time to hotwire the car Thats how quick it is to get into it Now your best bet is to use a service manual To find out exactly which wires make up the ignition circuit before you cut anything Hopefully we cut the right one, and it wont start Nice Now if someone jumps in your car to try and steal it The first place they are going to look for a switch if the car does not start is in the glove box or the dash board So dont put your switch there Try and find somewhere a bit more creative So what i’ve done is just wire it in with this switch temporarily to make sure it works So switch in the off position Car dosnt start Flick it on Away it goes Now it’s a good idea to wrap and hide your wiring as best you can to make it look factory fitted It might not fool professional thieves But at least it might slow them down a bit as they go searching for your switch Then get your 25 amp cable, and run that switch to somewhere in the car and hide it well Be sure to solder and heatshrink the cables really well Because if they are damaged quiet simpley your cars not going anywhere Lets see what happens this time So the kill switch is in and the cars safe pretty cool mod What do you reckon Marty No-one is going to try and steal it Well the thing is, I don’t think anyone is trying to steal it anyway
