RE: IML: remote ignition cut off switch



If it's carjackers you're worried about the best solution is a large gun.
The next solution would be an electric fuel pump with a cut off switch
that's easy to hit as you exit the vehicle.  The theory being to let the
carjacker take the car but hit the switch as you exit.  The thief will only
get a block or two with the fuel in the carburetor bowl.  He will abandon
the car where it dies after a couple of unsuccessful attempts to restart it.
Meanwhile, you've had time to run for cover and put distance between him and
you.  If you have fuel injection this solution won't work for you and you
may want to revert back to the first suggested solution.

Subject: IML: remote ignition cut off switch

Hello all:

I looked on the IML site, Radio Shack, and other auto parts sites, and
didn't find what I was looking for.

I would like a remote operated "ignition kill switch / relay" for my car
with a '67 Imperial engine (required content).  I would think a very simple
relay that cuts out the power to the ballast resistor?  Something that
operates from 300+ feet?  You know, to thwart all the car-jackers here in
the cornfields of Illinois.

Anyone have advice on this subject?  Otherwise, I'll have to get my
engineering freshman Son to design one for me (might as well get something
out of the 25K/year).

Thanks in advance for any tips,
