Need a Fuel Pump Kill Switch

    I just bought a 2012 Tacoma 4x4 I4 to replace my stolen Suburaban. The Suburban was stolen from a parking lot in broad daylight.

    Since the I4 doesn't even have the engine immobilizer, I am very concerned about theft.

    I think maybe a fuel pump kill switch would be the best option. I just need to know how to easily find the correct wire to splice into.

    I found this http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ost426005.html and wonder if it can be applied to our Tacomas, or if there are better places to splice into the wire, maybe at the fuse box itself ?

    Anybody done a fuel pump kill or can help with finding the right wire ?

    I really love this Tacoma and dont want to lose it like the Suburban.

    Thanks

    You can do that, but a determined thief who wants your truck is going to have your truck. They can pull up with a wrecker and winch it up on the back, for example.

    If you want to install a kill switch (fuel pump, ignition, whatever) you just need to find a wiring diagram and tap into the appropriate line.

    I'd recommend that you spend your money on lower deductible insurance.

    Completely agree, just want to have as much of a deterrent as possible.

    A wiring diagram is exactly what I need. Anybody have one ?

    Thanks

    Search for Dorman Motor products switchable relays. They make a fuel pump relay with an on/off switch on the outside. Not sure if they make one for Toyotas or not yet. It's used for diagnosis, but would work good in your situation also.
