Default hidden engine kill switch? pull a fuse?

Would it be as simple as pulling the rear seat and adding a switch to the fuel pump leads?

Is there something else I should tap? Or as a temporary fix is there a fuse I could pull that wont let the engine start or run, but allow the alarm to still function?

Getting ready to go skiing for the first time and the factory alarm just dosen't cut and would like that added security of making sure the car couldn't be started.

and for those of you anal retentive people who need to change your tampon.... I have already done a search on different word combos and came up with NADA.

How about the "starting without disengaging clutch" mod?

http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...p?threadid=994

Easy starter kill without the mess of goofing with the fuel system. I personally use a spade tongue and bend one of the prongs 90 degrees and it fits into the connector easily. It's not fool-proof, but show me a thief smart enough to tinker around your footwell in search of a disconnected clutch switch.

do a search under " Kill switch" and you'll find what you need. Their are two relays behind the passengers kick panel. One is the ECU, I believe, and one is just the fuel pump.

then choose your favorite place to mount a hidden toggle switch to shut them off.

If you had a UTEC you could just put it in security mode... you'll never get the car to run in that mode. I'd expect only a WRX owner with a UTEC to know how to bypass it.

already did a search for 'kill switch' the topics that came up didn't really offer much on a workable solutions.

just 'possible' things that were a vague on the how to.

For your temporary soultion:
Under the Hood in the main fuse box, pull the 50A fuse(SBF-4) under the Horn Relay. This is the Ignition fuse. Note there are 2 other 50A fuses in there. They are the master fuses for the main fuse box. A smart thief can swap one of those for the ignition fuse and start the car. They wouldn't have ABS, Fog Lights, and blower, or heated mirrors and the stop lamp, depending on which one they used, but they could still drive away.
Now if you take out all 3 50A fuses, and take them with you, they would have to use a jumper wire (which all the pro thieves would have) but we are getting into that "too much time to not be caught" zone. It would suck if you busted your fuses carrying them around though.

You can also pull the clutch switch as mentioned before, do both and the smart thief will move on.

Also, in the Fuse and Relay Box under the steering wheel, Fuse 11, a 15A one, is the Ignition Coil, ECU, and Fuel Pump Relay fuse. Pulling just this fuse will allow the car to crank but not start. Pulling this fuse and the 50A Ignition fuse is a great way to prevent starting of the car and inhibit the would be thief.
