Hi,

Curious if anyone has done a kill switch that would still allow auto start to function?

Trying to figure out what circuit one would interrupt that would allow it to start, but not drive? Just looking for something simple given the rash of thefts where I am.

maybe you could put something in the brake switch circuit? since you have to press the brake pedal and hit the start button even if the truck has been remote started. If you interrupt the signal from the brake switch, the computer won't be able to see if the pedal is pressed or not, and won't allow you to shift into gear.

IDK if anybody has ever done this, or if it's even possible without causing other damage, but it might be worth looking into.

No way to do it and still protect the vehicle. The way a kill switch works is it keeps the vehicle from starting until you switch it off. You could design a remote system that you can remotely turn on and off but that would be costly.
