- To turn it off you hold a magnet infront of the reed switch (hidden behind dash somwhere) and the power returns to the std relay and completes the circuit that has been immobilised. The led is also turned off.

The std relay is no drama, I just could not make sense of the crappy diagram, mainly for the terminals for the DPDT relay.

This is the link for the whole caboodle

The idea is that even if someone steals your keys, they cannot bypass the kill switch, except by using tow truck.
You would have to reverse the reed switch and the push button for your diagram to work this way. The bigest problem is your relay is energized the time you have things "embobilized". a locking relay would be cool. power pulse to open and a power pulse to close. May be Doc can help.
