    I'd like to convert my top cigarette lighter (there are two more below it) to a momentary switch to start the engine, while having the key in not be able to start the engine. This will work as a kill switch since the starting switch will be incognito.

    I've already researched this and found others that have done this with other vehicles, so I know how to convert the cigarette lighter over to a switch, and I have a plan for adding in a 3 position switch so I can easily revert back to the stock method (with the key) in case I need to drop it off at the mechanic.

    My main need is a wiring diagram for a 2000 3RZ 4x4 auto or some help locating the wire that leaves the ignition switch and goes to the starter. This is the wire that I'm going to cut to add in my own switch.

    Also, can I assume that the wire from the ignition switch to the starter relay has no other lock-out devices like the trans Park / Neutral switch? If not, then this project will be super easy and cost less than $10!

    Your wire goes through the7.5 amp start fuse the neutral safety switch to energize the coil of the starter relay

    Perfect!
    And that black wire I need in the diagram confirms what I've seen elsewhere but couldn't confirm it was relevant to my truck.

    If I am reading the 2 above posts correctly, when the key is turned all the way to the start position, power goes from the ignition switch to a 7.5amp fuse. That's where I'd like to add my own connections. According to this, I can find that fuse in the fuse panel in the lower left of the dash. Seems pretty easy.
