An easy kill switch for any five or six speed manuel transmition. Under the dash above the clutch hinge there are two wires. It doesn't matter which wire you chose. Cut either wire about two inches or more from the wiring harness. Attatch two wires as long as you want to the cut wire from the clutch harness. Attatch a 12 volt switch to the wires. You can place it any where you want. Just don't valet your jeep. That way only you know how to start your jeep. I have had this kill switch in my jeep for a while and never had any problems. If you have any questions please ask. I enjoy the jeep forum !

David97,

Neat idea, :amazed: have not looked on mine and never noticed... are these two wires color coded, can you post up a quick pic showing wires and switch. :ya:

Jim, if he shows us a pic of the switch then we would all know where it is. Identification of the wires is more important.

the wires you are in question are mostly black and only two coming from the clutch hinge. If this doesn't work let me know?

I have thought about this myself. Problem is I have an 86 CJ. What should I shut off for safety?

Are these the wires that are tied into the relay that requires you to depress the clutch before you start the Jeep? If so, I guess all of us that have pulled the fuse that controls this feature are our of luck. :tongue1:

for a CJ.,,,,as I was fiddling with mine to figure out an electrical problem,,,,there is some wires that plug into a spot that sits above the steering colum under neath the dash, its very hard to get to them, but there are two wires that go to the solenoid, if you add a switch at that point that would make a good switch and i dont think it could be easily found.
If its stuck, force it; if it breaks, it needed replacing anyways.

The pics I was referring to was not so much the location of the switches but pictures of the different switches themselves and location/color code of the different model vehicles that are being discussed. Placement can be anywhere once the correct wires are located. I understand that is not rocket science but it would help the newbie shady tree mechanic refer much easier.

Besides... I like pics. :cry1:
