    Default Car Security - Fuel Cut Off vs Kill Switch

    Which is preferred that would help render a car stuck in it tracks ?

    I understand if they want your car they will try, but if a car can not be started and the only way to get it is on a flatbed truck :-P

    Some funny ideas I have read on the internet is peeps, removing there coil lead, de-attaching the throttle cable, remove fuel pump fuse and disconnect some spark plug leads haha...

    Cheers,

    Had an old mate who removed distributor cap, pulled the rotor, and replaced the cap.
    My last car had a very well hidden fuel cut off switch - i forgot that i had used it once and instead though that i had run out of fuel. Felt like a fool when i remembered the button.

    My HJ ute had a key operated switch low down on the dash. It had two copper brake lines out of it that ran too the master cyl front brake circuit. First brake application and the front brakes stayed on. Prior owner said he heard it get stolen (it was a 350 SBC), he then followed on foot with his keys and found it at the first intersection with the doors open.

    I remember hearing about a bloke who had a switch to swap the ignition coil positive to one attached to another coil under the seat, connected to some thin copper wire sewn into the seat cover.
    I think you can guess what happens if you try to start it with the switch in the disable spot!

    In this day and age they would call the cops and you'd be arrested and charged... Just like setting up traps at your home/business when youre not there who knew setting a bear trap would be illegal...

    If not EFI, you get fuel bowls worth. HP carbs have big bowls.
    I have both. But in this day and age, a tracking device is where it's at.
    Can do all sorts of things, like send an sms when the car starts. They can flat bed do what ever. You will always know where the car is. There are some good ones out there.

    Agree you can't stop someone from breaking into your can or even trying but flowing them done is better then nothing.

    And yes, GPS is ultimate.

    Cheers
