    There are basically 2 kinds of "kill" switches. One would be automatic like the kill switch on my riding mower that stops the engine if the mower is in gear and and you try to get off the machine. The 2nd type is like a key switch that would prohibit someone from using my car unless the switch was turned on.

    which type would want

How do i install handlebar mounted kill switch in a chinese 72cc atc

replace the key switch as it is faulty
as to fitting a kill switch find a switch that the mount opens up so that the switch can be mounted without the necessity to remove anything off the handle bars take a wire from the key switch and run it to the kill switch and from the other terminal reconnect it to where it came from. This means that the power from the ignition switch now goes to the kill switch then back to where it was originally connected after the igition switch.

What is the kill swich? And where I find it?

Hi Alejandro,

A kill switch is a simple switch that interrupts power to the ignition system. You can attempt to start by cranking the engine over, but power is prevented from getting to the ignition coil / spark plugs so the engine will never start.

A kill switch can be a stand alone anti-theft device or is often part of an anti-theft system - that is operated by the driver often from inside the car. They can be as simple as a small toggle switch that is hidden away or can be related to requiring that the driver's foot be on the brake and the left directional must be on (or other combination of a number of devices) in order to start.

The simplicity of the kill switch relies on either (1) the stealthiness of its location or (2) method of disabling the switch to allow the engine to start and run (as described above). Since most are operated from the driver's seat, feel / look around under the dashboard, seat, console, etc. for a switch or other non-factory or suspect device that can be manually operated. Operate the device and attempt to start the vehicle.

Good luck!

Does a 2000 cavalier have a starter kill switch ?

no it shouldn't have a starter kill switch per say, however it does have a passkey security system that effects the fuel pump operation. as far as the starter goes, you should check ALL fuses and check the starter relay for being faulty. If all fuses and the relay checks good then I would go back to the ignition switch. maybe get a test light and check at the starter for 12 volts while someone tries to start the engine.

Car security kill switch

Easy. snip and strip one wire in the ignition, install small switch between the ends. Hide switch for your access only. (under the steering wheel or something) Simply disable ignition when you get out of the car and the key won't be able to start it.

How do you install a kill switch on a honda accord 96'?

I would not recommend messing with any electrical in your car if you don't know what your doing.
It would require you to splice open your ignition power cord. connect into a ground with a kill switch. so whenever your kill switch is active no power is running to your ignition. thus no start.

When you removed the alarm unit you cut the line to the Starter kill switch that was installed. Remove the starter kill switch which is most likely located under the dash spliced into the ignition wiring harness.
