Simple Security Mod with an Upfitter Switch?
Every now and then I?ll leave my truck running if I have to just run into the store quick, have to get my daughter from daycare, or some other quick stop?..usually just to keep the A/C or heat running, or if I have a lot of stops around town, it keeps me from having to start the truck 15 times a day.
It makes me nervous as hell though that someone?s going to jump in and drive off with my truck?.so most of the time I just shut it off and take the keys.
I was wondering?.is there any kind of simple wiring mod you could do with an upfitter switch that would kill the truck if someone jumped in and hit the brake pedal? Either where you could turn the switch on and it would allow you to turn the truck off and remove the key, but would keep it running as long as the switch was on, and you didn?t hit the brake pedal? Or maybe some other way to wire it in where you left the key in the ignition, but if you hit the brake pedal it would kill the motor until you turned the switch off and restarted it?
Just something that would be a simple way to prevent someone from jumping in a running truck and being able to drive off. I would think that if someone knew the wiring schematics and PCM good enough, they could come up with something
