is it bad to use this as a security measure? like push the button in the night time and pushing it back on in the mornings before work? will doing this everynight harm my car ?
LmfaoI do not know about the earlier models, however on the '99 through '04 the fuel cutoff switch is an inertia switch with a reset (only) button. Pressing the button will do nothing if the switch has not been activated by a jolt--I.e. in a crash.
You can make it activate by banging it with a rubber mallet...
I had forgotten about that; there are slots in the button shroud, on two sides, through which the button can be "popped" with an appropriate tool...Behind the switch there's a slot thats big enough for a flat head screwdriver than can go in and u can pop the switch back up
