Running in Parking Lot and Security

Howdy Yall,
The ignition cylinder on my OBS is somewhat broke in that it requires I put the key in to turn it, but once turned, I can remove the key. This comes in handy in that I can leave it running and manually lock the doors while I quickly run in for a coke or something. My worry is, however, that when it's running like this, there is no security. Can anyone think of a way I can add some sort of security to it when it's running like this? Perhaps like a switch I flick when I get out and have to "un-flick" it when I get back otherwise it'll shut off when the brake is pressed? Sounds like complex wiring to me...


Thanks and Gig 'Em!

A few things come to mind.

A chip with a security mode.

Remote start that shuts off when you press the brake.

Put a switch on the throttle, it's electric and would limit a thief to idle speed.
