It can be alot easier then that. Just run the wire from the switch up to the dis block and have your starter and the shore wire from your fuse block go to the dis block. Keep the long wire running from the fuse block over the alt as is. That is how I did mine and it seems to work

You have two wires going to your fuse block. The one is short and goes to the battery take that and put it to your dis block. The other wire is long and is tied into the harness and runs over to your alt. If you break the power to the fuse block the wire going to the alt will not have power and will shut the car off.

Does anyone know how to do this but have another switch that can disable the switch in the rear of the car for a daily driver purpose?

To anyone still using the stock fuse box in the engine bay, are you running a wire to each terminal from the kill switch, or just one wire?

Your alt and battery need to be on the same pole. As you picture sits you car would still run off of the alt.

As Far as i can tell this should be the easiest way to do it if you dont have a kill switch with 4 poles!!!

The way my switch is the 2 poles are the same as eachother on oppiste sides the same way the pic is, I guess that would just require a test light to see how your switch functions!!!

To be honest I'm tired of seeing this question be asked and asked again.

Here it is.... I call it race car power distribution for dummies 101.



Just do it this way.... it works.

That looks like the way I did it except I left my alt going to the relay box.

The relay that controls your ECU and such is in the relay box. For my understanding the alt will still power that and not kill the car. On top of that how's it going to charge the battery?

if you cut the power to the blk/yel going to the alternator it wont charge. i see what you are saying. if the alternator is spining and the white wire is still powering the underhood fuse box, it should still power the car(and power the blk/yel, which allows the alt to "turn on"), even with the switch in the off postion.

You are right and wrong all in the same paragraph Dave....

Even though the alt is spinning doesn't mean that it's charging.

If you remove 14v from the black/yellow wire it cuts the output of the alt. No matter if it feeds the relay box or not. The relay box will deenergize and will cut power to everything else in the car.

Anyone ever loop the power lead for your inline pump to the master cut-off? I was thinking about this while installing my Flaming River 2 circuit cutoff. Seems easiest and the pump gets its power from the battery. Car will definetly not run without power at the pump.

Yes I have. I took power from the non-hot side aka the switched side. Actually that's how it is in my car right now except it doesn't exactly cut my Eliminator pump. It cuts off the Aeromotive fuel pump controller which cuts the pump out.

Here is how I set mine up using a heavy duty solenoid/relay.

I used 4 gauge wiring for the battery, alternator, starter, and from the solenoid to the fuse box.

The OEM fusebox is fused so you don't need to add one inline.

With the solenoid, I was able to use a minimal amount of heavy 4 gauge wiring. From the solenoid to the kill switch I used 18 gauge wire.
