Kill Switch Question

Has anyone ever here of a kill switch wired to blow the ignition fuse? From the vague info there is a way to wire the ignition fuse to ground and have a switch in place to block the grounding? Just have to remember to flip the switch before starting your car every time. The thief could find the switch and flip it all he wants but nothing will happen. Has to now take the time to trace down the issue and do the repairs.

I already have other means too like battery kill switches at the battery plus a keyed one, fuel pump kill switch, but thought this additional one would really slow them down.

Re: Kill Switch Question

Yeah, add to the list a flat-bed tow truck.
You don't want to make it so that your car becomes nearly un-driveable. Or so as other people can't move your car when needed.
Besides, the ignition has no fuse.
