I took it off the big fat white wire running up to the ignition because it was part of the ignition I actually soldered it and wrapped it, loomed it, etc, etc. Just wanted it to be really nice.... if you go this route, be careful soldering up there as there are a lot of important wires there

This is my revision. I'm assuming that 1 & 2 on the DPDT relay is NC and 3 & 4 are NO. The idea is that when the relay is engaged +12 is put back into the coil

i still don't know where you bought the reed relay, and i had a hard time finding one that works, so i decided to wrig up a remote wireless fuel pump kill switch. i found somebody who was good with building wireless stuff, so i had him build me a simple control unit, and a simple remote.

the remote has a good range (maybe half a mile??) - j/k; i tested the control unit from the basement and tested the remote from as far as the very back end of the fence in my backyard. it might even have a farther range, but i have yet to test it. if i'm ever at gun-point when in the car (or out of the car), i can push the button on the remote, and no, i don't keep the remote chained along with my other keys. i keep the remote elsewhere on me, so i can cut-off the fuel, even when the theif is far away from me.

besides the remote-controlled kill switch, there is also a simple manual switch hidden in the car. i bled my hands to death trying to hide everything, so i hope that what i have done so far today was worth it.

as far as the schematic, it's basically the same as the reed relay kill switch, but just think of the DPDT Plugin Relay as the actual control unit. i'm still using an automotive relay, but i took out the flashing LED, the reed relay, and the pushbutton.

...well the pushbutton is still on my car, but it's not hook up to anything, and serves no function, other than to fool the theif. i already drilled a hole in my car prior to building the remote kill switch. i might as well leave the switch there to fill in that empty hole, and to fool the theif, that the switch actually does something, until when he rips the dashboard apart.

Just installed my first fuel pump kill switch today. And I jsut discovered this thread. My friend did his and told me what to do. I wired it next to the kicker panel. It is a yellow and green wire you splice into. I might do another one by the rear seats.

Hey guys, I bought all those parts that you need for the magnetic kill switch, but I have no clue how to wire this up, this is a pic of what iv got:
Pic
Thanks for your help!
The DPDT relay looks the sameas the pic above, but the regular 12V relay is different, on my 12V auto relay it sais 30,85,86,87a,87, and from my pic is the magnetic switch good enough???

I'll probably be installing a kill switch soon too, although I think I'm going to tap mine from the clutch switch which only lets you start the car if the clutch is fully depressed. Then, the car won't even be able to crank over or anything

Does anyone see any downsides to this? I mean, I'll probably wire loom all the surrounding wires so that nothing looks out of place under the dash. Then I will have to find a good hiding spot for the switch, but other than that, I think it should work better than just tapping the fuel pump power wire...

how many amps is the fuel pump pulling? What are the minimum requirements for a switch (not the relay solution)? Using a Relay, what are the requirements?

Just buy an automotive switch from radio shack. A switch rated at 30A will do just fine.

Could someone please repost or email me the schematics for the magnetic kill switch. None of the links/pictures appear to be working anymore.

just pull the main relay out. its under the dash by the steering wheel shaft. its a 1" X 1" X 2" box with a plug and about 8 or 10 wires running to it.., and its the relay for the starter, fuel injection, and pretty much everything else your car needs to run. i cut the clip for the plug off on mine, and it only takes about 2 secs to pull out.

nice thread guys.

I just did one today.
1. Just cut the yellow/green wire in half. (I wont say where i did mine)
2. Bought some male/female quick disconnects from radio shack
3. Bought a 25amp 12VDC SPST rocker switch from radio shack Rocker
4. Bought some 14 gauge wire from autozone
5. Put a female (or male) quick disconnect on each side of the cut yellow/green wire
6. Put a male (or female) quick disconncet on each of the 2 lines of 14 gauge wire.
7. Plug the 2 lines of the 14 gauge wire to the 2 lines of the yellow/green wire useing the quick disconnects u just put on.
8. Run the 14 gauge wires where u'd like.
9. Put female quick disconncets on the end of the 14 gauge wires
10. Plug the female disconnects to the 2 male ends of the rocker switch.

Done! Just make sure to crimp everything well & use electrical tape. My way is not complex, but it does the job. I have almost no electrical knowledge at all, but I was able to figure it out, so anyone should be able to do it.

The hardest part of this is taking off the interior panneling.

Dont use LEDs, if i was trying to steal your car i would just fallow the led wires to your switch rip the wires off it and twist them together. Thiefs arent stupid these days the magnet switch isnt really going to help because you can just rip the wires out and twist them. Real car thiefs are not going to be stoped by a magnet switch. The key to this is hiding the switch and the NONSTOCK wires going to it. Taking the main relay with you is pretty good, you can also take the ecu with you if you have a gutted car. Removeable steering wheels. If it takes you less than a whole day to wire your alarm and kill system up then your not hiding this stuff enought. All hondas have the wires in the same places, its not that hard to trace. Another excelent option is a hood locking system so that they cant get to the battery and horn. also hidden gel cell batteries and hidden horns are good to. But the sound that the horn makes gives away its location to makes it damn hard to get to. Any car is stealable you can probably come up with a system that would prevent is from being driven away, but it can still be stolen. I heard a story about one of the first porsche 911's of a certain model, the car was behind a 12 foot tall wall in a compund with a locked gate. car had a full system and everything. they used a crane and lifted the car over the wall and droped in on a flat bed truck.

Im not sure if ur replying to me or not. But could u elaborate on not using led's. i though those were those little red lights. but u said a theif could follow the led wires so Im not sure what that means.
but anyways i didn't use an led switch so i'm not even sure if u were replying to me or someone else.

You don't need a key to pop the trunk or fold down the back seats, even if it is "locked"... apparently you didn't know this, but theives do. Theives know A LOT more about your car than you do.. The more we teach the owner about their car, the better they can protect themselves from the theives. I assume most theives don't get their info from the internet, their info comes from just knowing the vehicles they're working with.. Most of the "security" features of a civic is just a peice of plastic in the way or a wire to short..I didn't learn this from the internet..I learned it just from working on my car.

Anyways, I am truely sorry to hear about you loss.. On april fools day too, thats fucked up.. you must have thought it was a bad prank untill you saw what was left of it..

Well I installed my kill switch today and i feel pretty good about it. I was a little bit more comfortable at work today!!! I do not feel right telling anyone where I put it but all I can say is, be creative and really think about where you put it. I instaled mine thinking of the same thing like 50 times, "No I bet the thief will check here from experience" before I actually found the right place!!!!

Good Luck peps!!!

i just did it in about an hour. i was curious though, if my connections are perfect, will the fuel flow be effected. or does it just need connectivity for power.

you can wire a killswitch to ur fuel pump,starter,coil,battery cutoff, you can unplug your ecu every night take youre ecu fuse out . . . take out your main power relay .. lots of things not mentioning clutch and brake locks . .
