    Fuel Cut Switch Foils Thieves!!

    Well, I was away for a week and I parked my car at a friends place in North Jersey while I was away. When I got back I found out that someone had tried to steal my car. Luckily I had taken everything out of my car (sub, personal stuff... glove box contents were inside my friends place... Totally empty car). They cut the horn wires and went to work trying to take it.... NO DICE! I had a fuel cut installed by Scott (speedbuggy76 on Nasioc I think) and it worked like a charm. They took a couple of CD's and cut their loses.... The car is intact and nothing else was missing...

    Nice, I usually just pull the relay if I'm in a bad area or away for a few days. I use the security setting on the UTEC but that can be defeated real quick.

    A fuel cut switch would be nice. Lets not give out too many details though.

    Wow, that would have been a crazy loss right after you got your stuff put in, I think I need to get me one of these before I mod my car anymore.

    Glad it worked for you. Have more confidence in mine now. Now you should move the wiring for the horns around.
