I may be looking into the key switch circuit for my car if the injector circuit doesn't work out. My biggest concern with key off is all the other systems it may kill. I doubt electronic key off would lock up the steering column but you can bet I'd test it thoroughly before hitting the road.

Thanks for the head up Balto. With the extra toggle switch, it was easy to disable my kill switch so I didn't use it out of habit. Now I just need to figure out an injector or key off kill... and look into a cleaner product for the engine. I'm sure I added a little carbon build-up with the dieseling
