    Having recently had my car keys and car stolen and then written off I want to fit a concealed immobiliser switch (somewhere inside the car, perhaps under the dash) which is reasonably accessible and which would prevent the car from being started.

    Can anyone tell me if this is feasible and, if so, which wire the switch would need to be fitted in.

    Out of curiosity do you have the option to enter a code into the obc?

    My E39 1996 has this option so that before you can start the car you have to enter the correct code as well as have the keys.

    If not i would go for a radio frequency tag system rather than a switch, that way once you are in range it disable that section of the immobiliser instead of feeling around under the dash for a switch.

    It should tell you in the owners manual if you can enter a code.

    There is plenty of stuff on the net about rfid tags here's a couple of links to get you started.

    before immobilisers became wide spread i hard wired a flick switch into the drivers seat, i used to take the fuel pump feed so if you tried to nick the car it would wind over till the battery went flat, the switch was in such a place that when you put your seat belt one you could brush your fingers over it, even passengers never knew it was there, had it on a couple of 2.8 capris and an xr3i, cars are much more sophisticated now so id see an auto electritian, but cars still have wires so it still would be possible, tell you what it saved the xr3i about 3 times in all
