Clutch sensor kill switch write up

Hey guys i just wired up a kill switch that was fairly simple and easy and hopefully prevents an attempt to steal my truck. And to the mods...maybe this could be sticky worthy???

What you will need
-2 Position switch
-16 gauge wire
-2 Butt connectors
-2 Female spade connectors
-Tiny hands would have helped

First you reach up and find the clutch position sensor, its a black box about 5inX2inX1in and its on a piston connected to the clutch. Heres some pictures of it




Theres a gray connector on the top of it, this is the connector you need to get out. In order to do that you pull the box forward toward the clutch and it will allow the box to spin around so you can access the clips on the side of the connector.


This is kinda of the PITA part mostly because of the strange position you have to be in to get up there but what worked best for me was a flat head screwdriver and just work each side up

Once you have it out there are 4 wires, the white with the pink runner is the one you want to cut. I just cut it in the middle between the connector and where the insulating sleeve starts


Then just strip the two ends and then butt splice the two pieces of wire on each end then you can put the gray connector back in to the sensor, once its back in then you figure out where you want to mount the switch so you can cut the wires to length and crimp on the female connectors to the end and connect them to the switch of your choice.

I chose to mount mine to the left of the parking break release just up under the knee panel out of sight but easily switched if you know its there.



So when its flipped on it starts just the same as normal, but when its flipped off it acts just the same until you go to start the truck it will not even turn over, as if you didnt push the clutch down. So basically if anyone wants to start it they wont unless they find the switch, which isnt hard but its better than nothing i suppose. Anyway i hope this helps especially with all of the recent thefts i have seen on here.

Good luck guys and if you have any questions feel free to ask

Re: Clutch sensor kill switch write up

I like this idea a lot! Keeps us from wasting a spot on our 6 pos switch for a no start tune.

If I had any worth here if defiantly reccomend this for a sticky!

I got another project Friday now lol

No problem but the bast thing about this mod is the lack of people knowing a damn thing about manuals in america so its already something foreign to alot of people and on top of it adding a kill switch to it

Hell it works so good sometimes it stops me from starting it and i get pi$$ed cause i think somethings wrong
AgTires4295 and john galt like this.

excellent Ramm.. Have you tried though, parking downhill, let truck role and "bump start" it, see if it fires off? I guess, if they want the truck, they'll get it.

I'm gonna see where that wire goes to. Maybe an easier access point, if any. But, i'm tackling the "RAMM MOD", or "STEIN-STILL mod'
