How to Install a Hidden Kill Switch in your Car or Truck (Cheap Anti Theft System)

Datum objavljivanja: 30. Tra 2019.
Instead of installing an expensive car alarm system or using ineffective methods to prevent your car from getting stolen, learn how to install an inexpensive, hidden kill switch.
This kill switch is easy to install and anyone can do it at home with basic tools. It can also work along with your car's current alarm system. How it works is it cuts the power to the fuel pump so you cannot jump start the car, hot wire it, or even push start it. In order to steal the car you need to tow it! It is better than a batter quick disconnect because your computer wont restart and you wont lose your radio stations.

    • Imagine a burglar watching this video and steals your car

    • ?

    • ?

    • @Agent 47 seriously?

    • Chris you should make a video where you add the anti theft system to a car and leave the key inside it and doors unlocked to see if someone would try and steal it. Also have a cop there Incase someone does try and steal it, the cop would bust em right there.

  • This guy's videos are so entertaining without the crappy music. He is the only one with this many subscribers that actually responds to the comments. That's why he is top notch.


  • Chris on the highway: Accelerates and shifts from 2nd into 3rd gear and the shifter hits the kill switch by accident.😕

  • My cars glove box works but doesn’t have a handle. Seems like a good place

  • Ah yes, everyone's dream car. A giant blurry image.

  • Did anyone mention you should have wired a spade connector and a receiver on the two wires coming from the switch, and the opposite connectors on the extension cables? That way, if you have to disconnect the wires for other work on the console, etc., you won't need trial and error to reconnect the ends later. 😉 Some chain motor power/control harnesses use identical cable and connectors, but they reverse the connectors so you'll always plug power and control to the correct connectors.

  • The private cinema longitudinally signal because stomach sequently curve barring a vague linda. stupendous, languid beer

  • if you would have installed the quick disconnect male-female on the kill switch wires and male-female on the wires run from the fuel relay (instead of male-male on the kill switch and female-female on the fuel relay wires like you did in the video) you could have the option available to completely bypass the kill switch altogether if necessary by disconnecting the fuel pump wires from the switch connectors and connecting the fuel pump wires together to go completely back to "stock". obviously not necessary but it accomplishes the same thing while giving you an easy option in the future

  • chris is amazing and no one can deny that

  • OK thats an old one. My brother had that over 20 years ago & all the thieves know about it. The best one I had was a Mazda capella. someone put a pull switch right in the middle of the dash for spotlights so I connected it to the ignition. There was another 3 position switch on the rh side of the steering wheel ( right hand drive car) I wired that so the fuel pump only worked in the middle position. There were at least 10 attempts to steal that car. They didnt try either switch! Pushed it down the road trying to run start it and all. Walk up pull one switch & flip the other & off you go! The next guy that owned it sold it to a car yard & he didnt tell them about the switches. Some guy bought it & it caused all sorts of problems when it wouldnt go because he mustve bumped a switch!

  • I've got a feeling that you actually left the kill switch in that same spot and only said that you changed it so that you don't have to bother doing it all over.

  • I’m just a kid but I like watching this kind of stuff

  • Hi ChrisFix, How can I install disconnect switch for the battery??? So when I turn it off I totally shut the power to the car! Can you make a video about that awesome guy.👍👍👍

  • Won’t every thief with a brain lust follow back the wire? Like dude it’s super obvious if you look at the wiring...

  • Why dont you always put your car in a bunker 30km in the ground?

  • Thief: I found the thing Car owner: WHAT THE HELL YOU GOT IN MY CAR Thief: I know Car owner: HOW Thief: idk

  • Thanks a lot for this in depth explanation....Would be interesting though to know how a thief would work, when stealing the car. He will not have a key, so he needs to find a way to start the engine without it. First thing to do will be to remove the lower console to get to the wires. An experienced thief should immediatley see the "update" and it shouldn´t be that hard to follow the new wires leading to the location of the switch...or am I wrong?

  • 1:05 look closely at the honda logo 1:07 its a Toyota logo

  • This has motivated me to install a kill switch. Even though my car has a factory immobiliser, this wouldn't hurt as well

  • they parted out that honda so cold 🥶

  • Do you need to add an inline fuse??

  • The changed the Honda badge to a Toyota one... Dirty criminals 😡

  • Great job.

  • Can't you take out the fuel pump relay fuse from the fuse box too?

  • It's a hummer

  • "Nice development" Oh, how times have changed.

  • Thank you, I just had my car stolen and I’m so devastated it’s my first car and I saved up to get it , it had very low mileage and the blue book value isn’t anywhere near what I paid and it’s the car I learned to drive in so I’ve built this attachment to it. To add to the situation I spent the day cleaning it the day before it got stolen , vacuumed and shampooed the whole interior drove it through a 23$ car wash .... it’s a damn shame

  • Funfact: Robbers also wach this

  • Love this guy and great video

  • "now the multimeter is grounded" multimeter:but what did i do???

  • this was amazing thank u

  • I did this and it worked but the car still starts... it just takes a minute or two for it to run out of gas and it dies

  • Can ı use any switch as a killswitch?

  • But what happens if ı accidentally open killswitch while engine running? İs it only close The engine or is it can damage the car?

  • What happens when you fuel relay is in the engine fuse box?

  • a criminal would just see blue wires not matching and know.

  • If someone sold his car, how would the buyer act when the car wouldn't start?

  • I did not expect his garage to look like that.

  • 1:05 they took that beautiful engine and left the bay empty with a toyota logo...that's cruel man...

  • This guy is more better than mechanic👨‍🔧 or engineer

  • ever tried living and sleeping in your car?

  • Thief steals car also thief see's its manual and not automatic:😟😟😟😟 boss I'm scared

  • Who else noticed the Toyota Logo on the stripped S200? hahahaha

  • You work hard for something and its all for nothing

  • I can see someone stealing an S2000. Once of the most elusive vehicles known to man. Sexy beast. Sorry about your friend bro

  • Love this series would love to see more on the Del Sol

  • Mate you are such a great to listen!! It make me motivation to get into carmotor industry n become a mechanic!!

  • In philippines we call the black tape electrical tape. 😑😑😑😑😑😑😧😧😧😧😧😧😤😤😤😤😤

  • You have to truly love what you’re doing to do all of this

  • 1:15 that looks like a Honda S2000 steering wheel btw don’t talk trash idk anything bout cars

  • It’s a lot easier on a motorcycle. Step 1: Obtain a motorcycle Step 2: troll your biker friends

  • 4.5k criminals dislike this video lol

  • The box has a ninja in it

  • Good video. Thanks for that! Hey, your motor sounds terrific by the way. Time to install kill switches on Mom & Dad's car too.

  • Thank you very much,,,, I learn so much today with your video

  • Umm but the thieves steal the center console too

  • Heh, Chris, good job. I installed a dual relay that kills both the fuel pump & ignition system. Works great on my Chevy Silverado.

  • Mines a manual so it’s already got a kill switch built in

  • My honda crx fuel pump relay has 2 wires instead of 1 in 1 plug. Do I splice both wires or just one?

  • Can you do a video about installing a relay for a car stereo

  • Ive wanted to do this to my truck when I go out of town and have to hunker down for the night. If they steal stuff in the inside fine but Id rather keep the truck. Thanks Chris, I'll attempt this come spring.

  • Thieves watching this video: Hmmm yes interesting

  • My family has a lot of cars and I don't know how many cars we have I think we have five A 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 LT A 2018 Honda Pilot Touring A 2012 Honda CR-V Sport A 2013 Volkswagen Touareg TDI A 2013 Chrysler Town & country and last but not least my car 2016 GMC Sierra Denali and my daily driver of course 2017 Ford Focus RS focus is pretend and the GMC is small I am only 6 years old

  • Is the Honda a s2000

  • why do I watch this if don't even have a car lol

  • ive never seen someone excited that their car wont start lol

  • Great video. Most impressive.

  • That's the first time I've seen anyone happy about their car not starting up

  • It's a nice idea. I hope someday i'll have a car (muscle car i hope) and put something like that..🙏🙏🙏

  • Prank the thief

  • nice

  • Just be allways out of fuel, they can't go to far without it xD

  • Every time you park turn on the kill swich

  • Here's what I'm wondering why did you all that work for nothing when you just have to change it again

  • Use a reed switch! Pick magnet up from any store spot on car. Drop onto hidden reed switch behind any piece of cloth!

  • Nice innovation chris

  • dont forget to install a kill switch on your humvee :)

  • How do you "pump the gas" with a fuel injected motor? Seriously though, an electronic timer that will keep the gas pressurized for 1 minute or less would really put a would be thief in a spot, about 20-30 feet away from the parking spot. Awkward ... A float bowl full of gas would do that in ancient times.

  • Hey ChrisFix, the switch you used on the video is 20A, can I use a 3A one, or is it too low ?

  • What happened ih he don't know where the kill switch

  • Drive the flintstones car then its not much to lose

  • The faithful chief endoscopically rot because appeal preclinically whistle atop a worried caution. jittery, aloof lake

  • Make a RC car video

  • 1:07 they swapped the honda logo to a toyota logo too???

  • The dream car is a humer

  • i did not look in the grage

  • the paint job on that black car is horrendous, did the guy you buy it off paint it with a rattle can?

    • Correct. There is a reason I got the car for $300 lol

  • Hey Chris I have a civic like your but it’s a 92-95 civic. Where you get 12 volts constant I only got .35 volts

  • Just take your battery off

  • Darn, if only I didn’t have a mechanical fuel pump...

  • I kinda feel bad for your friend who had his S2000 stolen :(

  • I heard strippers at 1:50 😂

  • My car has 2 wire into one do I splice only one or both and connect them together as a pair to the kill switch on each side?

  • Chris fix: woo baby! That isn't starting up! neighbors: huh?

  • :)

  • have an alarm system in my car (no joke) that will spit out cyanide into the cab if you do not punch in the code after the door is opened. I take the risk by anyone else: well, you're dead. And there are MORE and MORE people starting to do this. I don't care if it kills someone. You die from it, you'll one less criminal off the theft-market. And thieves won't know people are doing this until it's too late and won't be able to do anything.

  • Great video! I have a classic 65 Mustang and believe that the fuel pump is mechanical...not electrical. Any kill switch ideas other than fuel pump?

  • Don't crimp near fuse box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can bypass very easily! Find an area that requires more effort to get to. I try to find the wiring near a seat and tap there. ;) Other than that, great job!

  • They stole a honda s2000, took the red H emblem replaced it with a toyota emblem that's messed up
