grounding plug?

hello all

To prevent from people stealing my car I would take out what my friend calls a "grounding plug"? It prevents the car from starting up once removed, I guess the computer won't receive a signal to deliver air, fuel, or spark to the engine (It's 2 of the three and it might be the other way around.)? Correct me if I'm wrong but I was wondering if a 95 Si has one, where can I locate it, and can I remove it without causing any problems?

Re: grounding plug?

Remove the starter relay from the fuse box under the hood. For a while I removed the spark plug wire that went to the coil. But I moved from that neighborhood so I dont have to worry about that no more.

Re: grounding plug?

I had somone try and hack into my ignition with a screw driver (****ing idiots) I like the starter relay idea a aftermarket steering wheel can easily be taken off also thats what I want to do and not just for the security for looks also

Re: grounding plug?

Why not just do a fuel cutoff switch?

Tap into the wire running from the fuel pump under the back seats and wire a switch to it. The switch is ON, fuel pump gets power, the switch is OFF, fuel pump gets no power.
