Yeah, I would go with the starter circuit myself. Playng around and potentially screwing up the VATS just don't feel right to me....

Maybe try to run the switch wiring to a small rocker switch in the center console (if she has one). I'm just trying to think of a place it would be easy to reach, but hard to see.

I did this to an old 70-something Cutlass I had. But I used the floor dimmer switch for it. Lost the High Beams, but nobody could start my car but me....

A lot of people do this to Jeeps too becasue when you have the top down there isn't much stoping someone from stealing it...

heck, you culd even put it in the glove box perhaps...

just be 100% triple sure they never find out about it...then you'd have to rewire the silly thing all over again. definitely sounds like a discipline prob. if i had kids...and they ever did that to me...i'd call the cops. a night in the clink would leave a lasting impression.

What about something like this to keep them varmints from starting the car. You have to enter a code in this keypad before you can turn the ignition key
Day


Or at night

in my opinion a keypad is WAY too easy to get around. pull it out, jump the correct wires. and you have yourself ignition. how hard is that?

a hidden switch tucked under the dash is a much better choice because if they dont know about it, they cant use the car.

putting it under the driver seat would actually be a good idea. That way the driver doesn't have to "reach" down below the dash and give away the general area that the switch is in. I know I can touch under the seat w/o bending/leaning over.

Good idea. Remember, they are only trying to DETER a couple of kids from taking the car for "a joy ride". Not trying to prevent a professional thief from outright stealing the car.

of course better means of security should be taken in order to prevent theift but the club should suit "junior" just fine
