My mates got a VN and his old man is a mechanic so he made a kill switch from the hazard lights button, in other words to start the car you have to hold the hazard light button. this is very effective his car has never been pinched
Ive seen this bfore, quite effective :)

i just have the stock alarm....
hope no theif gets on this site!! AGH

ummm.... gprs would be a charm if you had the dolla's...

from what i understand!!

the bigger the lock the better!!

you have wheel braces and huge steering wheel lock...
they see it and are like... bugger it!

if you got a switch to stop them taking your car.. then they steal your sound system....

but then i spose sound system isnt as bad as the lot...

I Just checked out a place today actually that stock “Rhino” systems. There is one that has a two stage shut-down system that will kill your fuel pump and something else… it also has a pager up to 1.5 kilometers range and a SMS is sent to your mobile phone. If your first two kill switches are bypassed you then have a satellite navigation that will show you were the car is and can be stopped anytime via “Rhino back to base monitoring” and the cops will be alerted.

If you want to spend 2 grand on a system, then by all means this is the best one. I look at it this way, if you spend 20+K on hotting your car up, what’s 2 more grand going to hurt?

Note: It has sensors up the wahzoo that will detect anything from a minor bump (trying to open the door via the door handles) to a window break. It has a double alert setting that will allow you to have just the pager and SMS go off for little minor bumps and then have the pager, SMS, and GPRS monitoring if the car is actually broken into or the first two kill switches are bypassed.

How about this. Telstra have a service where you send an sms to a number you can get the gps cords of the mobile. Some mobiles can be hooked up to electronics to read/send sms. So you could 1)locate your car 2)kill the engine when you and the cops show up.

Advantage over gps is that gps needs to see the sky. The metal roof is enough to kill the signal.

lol, u can buy a kit from jay car or get it installed at auto electrician, its a relay circuit that wont allow the car to start unless you earth out the circuit by touching an earth point that its set to. I had my rear demist switch as the earth but my old VB, i used a screw in the dash. When you complete the circuit, it allows the ignition to supply the 12 volt to the starter.

The other method on autos is the old inhibitor switch that wont let you start in gear. Cut the wires and put a switch in there and hide it under the console.
