Glad to hear you got your van back. Keep us posted with what you decide to use for anti theft devices.

In my 08 King Ranch, Jason Crawford installed a magnetic switch hidden behind the dash. I think it was $100 for the switch. Basically it looked like a resistor and was completely hidden. To start the truck I had to pass a magnet over the dash where only I knew it was located, the switch would close and I could start it. No way to hot wire it unless you knew it was there but you would never know it. I believe he tapped into the wire that syyplys power to the PCM because the truck was 100% dead until I passed the magnet over the switch location. Very cheap and effective. I'll see if I can find one.

found it, its called a Reed Switch. Basically its the same as a window or door contact for a house alarm. And they are not $100 like I said.

I found this a while ago when looking for a way for a theft deterrent on the FTE forums. I think it is a similar idea from what Clay had posted.

It looks a little more complicated but it may be worth it.

That's really close to what JC did to 'Twister' IIRC. Pop made his 'secret feature' where he could choose to use it or not.

Exactly what Pop used in the referenced article. I think he knows what he's talking about - he even quotes a source for $3 or so I think...

This is what he did. This is not what Jason did with twister. Maybe you didnt read my post.

"The concept is to interrupt the power to the IDM (Injector Drive Module) relay in the under-hood fuse/relay box. This is the relay that supplies power to the box that makes the voltage that fires the injectors. Without voltage to the IDM, the engine won't start or run. I used the IDM circuit instead of the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) relay, as I wanted my instrument panel to appear normal while the truck is being "violated", so as not to start the bad guys looking deeper into this. Everything will appear as it should, it will even crank the starter motor. The truck will just not start and run".

Jason shut it off at the PCM. The dash was dead, the starter would not crank, nothing. Either way works of course.
I think Jason knows what hes doing as well.
