My kill switch is on the fuel pump...car will crank and start, but choke out after 5 seconds of idling. I don't have a switch, I have a "key" that I've hidden such that even if you find it, you wouldn't know what it was.

You'll need the service manual.

11-45 is the fuel system circuit. You want wire F22 - Gray
22-76 tells you where connector F is on the driver's fuse panel.
22-101 tells you what wires correspond to what pin # on connector F.

Cut the wire, strip back some insulation, put with a switch of you choice in-line (heat shrink tubing + solder the connections). You want to use an ON/OFF switch, NOT a momentary (ON) switch. (ON) means momentary. I routed the wiring of my switch under the carpet so you can't tell I made any modifications to the harness.

Took me a few hours , and it's really cramped working conditions. And I'm not saying what my key is or where I put it

I ran a vehicle security business for 7 years and I applaud you wanting to add more security, especially in Europe where the thieves tend to be a bit more sophisticated. I know because that's where my business was (UK). Although the Honda OEM system will hinder an opportunist joyrider, it's always better to have a bit more if the more determined thieves target your car.

Ignore those who come along with the same old tired "if they want it, they'll get it so why bother". Those who say that don't practice what they preach. If you want proof, just ask them if they leave their doors unlocked and alarm disarmed! If they say no, they are hypocrites but I digress. Of course, these same people don't know the difference between an alarm system and an anti-theft sytem. An alarm attempts to deter and alert of theft attempts. An anti-theft system works to keep your car where it's parked. One can be ignored, the other cannot--except if towed away.

Anyway, to your question, a fuel kill is a good option. However, a better option would be to install a two- or three-circut immobilizer. These devices allow you to kill starter, fuel, ignition or headlights but they must be stealthy and WELL-INSTALLED. Actually, any kill should be WELL installed given the consequences of an installation-related failure.

One last thing...secure your keys! These days, virtually few newer (say 2005) and later cars are stolen by hotwiring or with a screwdriver in the ignition switch. They are stolen when drivers leave keys in the ignition, carjackings, or with technology and illegal key copies (Google "BMW security flaw").

Good luck. Enjoy Europe.

I looked into all the possible ways to disable our cars back when I did my install. I think problem with the starter/ignition circuit is it runs into the engine bay connectors/fuse boxes and would be a lot more of a pain than hitting the fuel pump which uses the driver's underdash box.

I figure if a thief can get past the fuel pump immobilizer, they'll get through anything else I do anyways. Or they'll just tow the car. And that's why we have insurance.

when I used to install kill switches on my cars they were under the driver carpet below the seat. I use a toggle switch that I recess into the seat support. ensure the switch can handle the fuse amperage, or at least 20amp.

the fuel pump and shift lever release ground are located there, so I just interrupt the ground circuit.

I remove the driver seat and pull up the carpet to install it.
