    A buddy puts'm on his vehicles.

    He simply cuts into the Crankshaft Position Sensor circuit (a simple sensor) - easy to locate and keeps the motor from running w/o that critical part

    You can also use the factory cigarette lighter as a kill switch if you remove the heating coil and use the ground leg to complete the circuit (push the lighter in to run the car... pull it out or remove it and the car wont go).

    You're giving me goosebumps.

    So symple to do really.
    All you need to to interupt the ground of something important.
    Like the crank sensor as fore mentioned.
