The switch will need to be selected based on where you want to mount it and the type of electrical connection you choose to hook it up with. Choices are infinite.

Dude, I am so sorry. This is my worst fear. In regards to the kill switch, someone told me this will make your car act funky or potentially damage it. Is that true?
Depends on who is doing it and how. I got my kill switch installed myself to Start\Stop button. I've done it 10 months ago and use it everyday. Fuel pump cutoff switch installation

You can still remote start the car, but you can't put it in Drive until Start\Stop button is lit. If you put foot on brake pedal it shuts off the car automatically because there's not power in Start\Stop button. I tested it.

The other 2 are Fuel pump and Starter. I didn't go that route because of too much wiring, but some people do it.
Oh okay. Yeah I was hoping for something simple. Not a mechanic by any means. A simple install with a hidden switch would be nice. That way while I’m at work all night and my car is parked in front of my building, I’ll have peace of mind knowing it can’t be started.

Just had my hawk stolen off the dam dealers lot today. It’s all on camera too. And no one can do ** about it. Like this ** is fucking ridiculous, I drop my car off for service and it gets fucking stolen. I had it for a few months, fucking losers. It was in Pennsylvania in Horsham. God dammit. I’ve read about this but to have it happen to me and while under the responsibility of the same place I just brought it from hits different. I don’t understand why the FCA still makes their vehicles so easy to steal. Like it’s obviously an issue right now with the hellcat powered cars. And it really isn’t fair to us owners who drop all the fucking money on them. God dam I’m pissed.
Aweful! Had my first one stolen in under a minute - we have some good posts on preventive measures … kill Switch, etc… I also threw back Thursday to using the club .., steering wheel lock …. Even when grocery shopping … not fool proof but solid .. they took my first one in under a minute… the club adds time as they have to saw through it or the steering wheel

Here is a basic step by step video guide of what you need & the steps to knock it out. 🤘🏻

@StevenTrackhawking
Damn man sorry to hear this. Apparently the dealership thought it was ok to leave out over night. Wouldn't even be surprised if it was someone at the dealership.
Sounds like a lawsuit, you vs them and your not at fault. This is what business insurance is for. I would roast them no mercy man.
Yea my insurance sounds like they are going after theirs

Was this stole during working hours or at night after hours, if at night did they have locked gates or what. this is very concerning about leaving vehicle at any dealership to have warranty work done. I can see someone coming into a lot during the day to steal these vehicle as easy as it is to take them. Almost afraid to go on vacation without removing half the fuses and relays, booting and chaining the wheels. Wish there was a way to line lock all 4 wheels brakes.
It was over night at a supposedly secure location.

Not sure what area you’re in but I saw the post about your trackhawk. I used to have a 17 hellcat and have been going back and forth about getting a hawk just for having 1 vehicles sake that’s good in all weather, but what happened to you is my worst fear.

I’m too new to PM, so i’ll post this here. Tonight I saw a white trackhawk around 6:30 PM or so going up welsh road towards horsham. It turned right onto blair mill road and into the lowes parking lot. Was tinted and badgeless on the tailgate, but did not have much sound to it. Hopefully you could have the police check the security cameras at lowes/shopping center? It looked very similar to a white trackhawk I saw going through the promenade in upper dublin last Friday 12/17. It’s not often you see a trackhawk and i’m a huge mopar guy myself so i’m all ears when one drives by.

This is not the first incident of theft at chapman either. Someone managed to get a key shell/spare key off ebay & key swapped a challenger after a test drive and got away. They gave the salesman the dummy key and came back later in the evening and drove the car through the grass onto 611 and were gone. Also in the spring/summer wheels were stolen off quite a few hellcat vehicles.

My father used to work at brandow in warminster, which was the jeep franchise chapman bought when brandow decided to close shop, so he worked there for a short stint. But a handful of his former coworkers still currently work there, so that is where I get my vehicle serviced as well. Hopefully things work out in your favor & you’re back in a Forced Induction Hemi soon.
Thank you, I appreciate the information you provided. My EZ pass was still in the car and it was In Norristown early the morning it was stolen. I don’t think it was mine unless they debadged it and took the borla off.

Unfortunately, a GPS signal jammer that plugs into a cigarette lighter can be had for less than $50. Having said that, I have an appointment for both Ravelco and beefed up security system with tracking already scheduled.

I fear the stealing of these big V8 Hellcats will only get worse as they slowly stop producing them. Thieves should be stoned to death in public.
Yes definitely getting the ravelco and lojack put in my next one
