This is a remote possibility, but it still does exist. This was a very long discussion on nasioc a while back.

    so just to sum it up, the AP antitheft real time map is pretty much useless

    Yes and No. For the amateur thief, it will probably be pretty effective, but I wouldn't rely solely upon it alone. As I stated above, your best bet is still a layered approach. To be honest, the only thing that has been proven to work in WRX Theft central (NJ) is a hidden fuel cut. However, there have still been cases where the thieves used another car to push the target car away from the scene so that they could work on it in a different location.

    After Researching.....

    I did some research guys.... it's very simple. Since the fuel pump runs through the right side (passenger side), just add a relay, wires (12v) and a switch somewhere in between the fuel pump. You pretty much have to hire the switch or maybe add a factory switch (ON, OFF) somewhere in the dashboard, or under the seat etc. That is all to it~!!


    Imagine this:



    (battery)
    .
    .
    somewhere
    .
    discrete
    .
    (switch)
    (fuse box/ relays/Power 12v)
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    driver side..................<<<.......<<<.......<<<..... ....<<<<...//(relay/ 12v Wires)
    .

    I apoligize if the diagram is so not professional, but I was bored

    I think by adding a switch like this (IMHO) will delay these suckers, might even prevent them from taking your car.

    Let me know what you guys think

    Once again I apoligize for the grammar and the ugly diagram.

    Wish I would've went through this mod a while back, but never did. Goodbye '00 Civic! Also, you can put a 2nd switch somewhere else and only disable that one in suspicious places. It's an awesome idea though. Good POM machine!

    I have not used this, so i can't answer-or-comment in this, but i've read good things about it. May have warranty issues though.
