There are many, and any one of them is probably enough to slow down down your average thief enough to deter them. You have a computer that has a power (and ground) leads, you have many sensors/devices connected to the computer that might disable the car if interrupted, possibly camshaft position, crankshaft position come to mind, fuel injectors certainly, ignition power, starter interlock, fuel pump leads, airflow sensor might work. Maybe something to pressurize the brake system? Again, there are many many ways to temporarily disable a modern car.
