just buy a switch, summit,jegs, speedway motors take your pick, they are made for this, install it anywhere you like and wire it on the ground side of the battery. You will be interrupting the ground to kill the car.

remote kill switch

There are different kinds depending on what you want to do.

There is a battery disconnect that does that.... (Disconnects the battery)
There is a Kill switch, that kills the engine if it's running
There is a kill switch that won't allow the engine to start. (theft prevention)

Now the remote part. Wireless? Hidden switch inside the car? A little more info and I am sure you will get the answer you want. I'd be glad to help.

Easiest way

While there are many ways to do this, if you have an HEI ignition, the easiest way I can think of is to insert a switch into the wire that plugs into the + side of the HEI cap.

If you have a separate coil (away from the dist cap), the wire that goes to the + side could have a switch inserted in it.

I like soldering wires best, using barrel splices and 2 layers of heat shrink.

Does dual gas tank pickup trucks with an electric tank select switch give you any ideas?

For theft prevention and what I did on my 34.

My battery is in the trunk and the fuse panel is fed from a 50 amp MaxiFuse in the trunk behind a panel in the trunk. To maintain the memory of my radio and clock I have a #16 AWG wire fused with a 2 amp fuse from the battey positive to the fuse panel power. When I park the car overnight away from home I remove the 50 amp MaxiFuse. The only path from battery positive to the fuse panel is the #16 wire and 2 amp fuse. This is more than enough to maintain radio memory, but if someone tries to start the car the 2 amp fuse blows. If they manage to get into the trunk and discover where the MaxiFuse is well..........

My roommate has a '01 Mustang, like so many cars & trucks, has a electric Key fob, that Locks & Un locks her doors & Trunk.
I'm Wondering if i had a Key fob that could be connected to the Ign, With a barrel roller Like on the Mouse of a Computer, to change the Voltage, or Amp's from a distance.

Does Lo Jack, have to be connected to the P.D.?
