Kill switch on fuel pump

Postby Angelo1976 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 10:29 am

I have a 1996 B13 1.4 GE Sentra. I'm trying to install a kill switch as antitheft but I've discovered that the car seem to run even interrupting the Black/Red wire coming from the key lock. From the manual that cable should supply the fuel pump of electricity. Turning the key, there is no power to the meters and gauges, the engine cannot run idling but if accelerated it does. I didn't try to keep it running like that for more than 15 seconds, because of fear but I wonder if once the fuel line would empty, the engine will eventually stop running preventing eventual theft. Any suggestions? thanks

If it has injectors it should die pretty much instantly if the right wire used.

And why I posed my statement the way I did. A carb still has the fuel amount in the bowl to use up when pump gets cut off, nothing you can do there. You need to cut ignition, not fuel pump.
