IPhone Kill Switch

What's this story about a kill switch? Why is it in my iPhone? What does it do? Can I override it? Can Apple listen to my conversations?
Is this legal?!

The killswitch is in the rare case that you download an app from the AppStore which is later deemed to be dangerous. The "kill switch" can be used to sterilize that app, so it does not cause any damage, physical or software-related.

    The media creates unnecessary hype... usually it's a bunch of people who don't know anything about technology themselves, and try to scare people. I wouldn't be concerned. The killswitch is there for good measure

1997 crown Victoria. viper alarm kill switch has turned all power to car. How do I reset


there is no override. Otherwise it would defeat the point of an immobilizer. I would find out why the alarm went off and deal with the rot cause rather than trying to bypass something made to be un-bypassable.

You may be able to reset the alarm by unplugging the battery from the car for a minute or 2 but I would start with the alarm manual to be safe. Possibly even remote the alarm and put the wiring back to stock.

How to replace a kill switch on a husky 288 xp


There should be only 1 screw and one wire connecting the kill switch. The kill switch simply grounds out the ignition. So it is difficult to install improperly. The wire coming from the switch goes directly to the ignition module.

I replaced ignition coil on a Tecumseh Toro 20018 mower. It would not start without disconnecting green "kill" wire. Now what do I need to do - replace the kill switch? Is the kill switch located on the...


It is a short in the kill switch, or the wire running to the kill switch. check insulation on the wire running to the kill switch and check the routing of the wire to insure that it is not being rubbed by moving parts, or the insulation melted by hot engine parts such as the exhaust system. Finally check that the kill switch itself is functioning properly with a test light or OHM Meter.

Alarm is armed, and I dont have a remote.I need to manually dissarm the alarm or my car will not start


Open the door, the alarm will sound , go under your dash, normally installation techs will install a kill switch or alarm override button either in the drivers side kick panel to the left of were your left foot rests or inside the fuse box panel, under the steering column or by the center column somewhere but most likely the drivers kick is the spot. So open the door and find the kill switch or override button and put the key in the ignition turn it to the on position without cranking and press or toggle the switch after you turn the key, this should override the alarm and let you start the vehicle, otherwise you have to remove the alarm main fuse from the brain and rewire your starter kill to factory so that you can start your vehicle normally again until an alarm tech corrects the alarm wiring.

Good luck my friend, hope it is helpful.

Hearing problems


First try restoring the iPhone is iTunes you can find instruction for doing that here:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

If that doesn't work you may need a new earpiece speaker. If it is under warranty Apple will repair that for you for free otherwise there are third party places that can fix it for you as well.

IF YOU FOUND MY SOLUTION HELPFUL PLEASE VOTE 4 THUMBS UP.

Thank you and Good Luck!

Kill Switch


Yes the Android OS Has a Kill Switch.

This doesnt meen google can start removing everything from your phone. the Kill switch is in place for security reasons. because the android market is open source unlike Iphones Appstore. the Applications are scanned but due to the Open-ness they arent screened as Rigorously as by Apple (who only let certain apps into their store).

The kill switch is ONLY in place if there is a Malicious / Broken app that can potentially damage and/or hack your phone.

The kill switch is a GOOD thing. u dont wanna download an application only to find out it damages your phone or Does something wrong to the Android OS do you ?
