do you always run on "E" so the criminal will have to stop for gas somewhere closeby and in doing so, will be monitored by camera at the filling station??? GENIUS!agreed, and i hope the thiefs bring a jerry can of gas.
and burn my truck to the ground... because after the crooks have driven the living crap otta my truck i don't want it back!!
I completely agree with you. And I wouldn't buy that masterlock thing. I just found it a while back and saved it for threads like this. I'm not one to mess with the wiring for the fuel pump, or have another kill switch either. I'm in NY and road salt corrodes wires and things stop working. The only things I wire up are not required for the vehicle to get me home, or I make sure I weather proof the hell out of itIf you read the article, right above it has a little blurb about Vehicle Immobilizers, We have that already. The Sentry thing is just a double up of what we have.
I have installed alarms for many years, If all you are looking for isa something to prevent the car from being stolen, the factory stuff is fine. Alarms are bought top protect the valuables we keep inside. No aftermarket kill witch will stop a good thief. Most good thieves have 1 or 2 cars they steal. They know those cars better than you do. They know where a good place to hide an alarm is. They know where you should connect a kill switch for a starter kill. They also know how to bypass a fuel cutoff.
Stupid criminals won't have any idea how to bypass anything. they won;t get passed the factory immobilizer. Smart criminals have a better way. And they're taking it either way.
The engine immobilizer is not standard across all Tacoma models. For example, it's not even an option on the base model regular cab.I am not sure I understand what a kill switch would do any more than the chip/engine imobiliser built in now.
If you are looking for more security, then perhaps something like "The Club" or a wheel boot would be in order.
