Re: iPhone Kill Switch
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.

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.
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.
just eliminate and cut off the wire to the existing kill switch the put any kill switch you want on it and take the main electrical lead to the ignition or what ever it is and put the new kill switch in the middle of the new kill switch you installed I did it before it always works just make sure to eliminate the old kill switch and its connections are no longer needed
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.
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.
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 ?
