Has anyone installed a starter cutoff switch? where would the wiring begin? at the starter solenoid or starter?

Fuel pump cutoff switch is easier. Literally just a hidden switch somewhere you wire inline with the power line on the interior body harness going to the fuel pump.

I stayed at a friend's in a sketchy neighborhood and I just popped my fuel cutoff every night. No worries about the car being gone in the morning even with kids in hoods walking around all night.
The New Edge switch is in the trunk on the left side under the trunk liner. It's literally a big button that you can push.

Yep I would pull that if I was going to have my car in a new place sitting for a good time. However in a sketch neighborhood any sort of cutoff is not going to stop some hoodlum from messing the thing up.

Lol I went around a curve and lost the bumper in my gfs 04 gt and once the state trooper came I was about to leave and the car kept shutting off. When you turn real sharp it cuts the fuel for safety and the cop went around to the trunk and found the switch. Lol I didn't even know there was something there. Pretty cool when a stranger knows secrets about your car you don't know :p

Not everyone has them and even if they did you can hide it wherever you want. Install cutoff switches, be smart about where you park and if you live in a neighborhood where you worry about your car getting stolen I'm not sure there is a way to stop thieves 100%. Honestly if someone wants your car that bad its going to take a lot to stop them.
