When these cars are started remotely, if someone tries to move the shifter without the key in the car, it already does turn the engine off...at least my 2017 hatch does. If not, you can easily splice a switch in series with the input wire or even the output wire. There’s no difference except that the output wire option would cause the start/stop switch to light but would not turn the engine on. This is the easiest and cheapest optionSo I was sitting here thinking, how can I pervent someone steeling my car or maybe hijacking my remote signal...
Then it came to me! What if I install a toggle switch before the push start button? The car can still be remote started but without finding the hidden toggle switch the car would just die out when putting it into gear...
Could you imagine the adrenaline and there face how happy they would be to get the car started then the car dies when they put it in gear lmao.
I'm kinda interested in this idea and would be interested in hearing your thoughts on how to implement it.
NOTE: I do not want to do the fuel pump route because I want to be able to remote start in winter.
