Oh, yeah, thanks. I deleted the post because I was reading it on mobile and skipped right over that without noticing it.

I got it all wired up last night. Well, there's still a wire running across the floor from the shift knob to the door, right now, but I tested it out last night and it worked perfectly. Excellent write-up, Balto. I've been holding off on this mod for like a year because I thought it was going to be really complicated, but it was pretty painless, and the benefits are gonna be huge when I'm in stop-and-go traffic and always wasting speed trying to force the car to auto stop.

Just drove my first full tank with the killswitch, and was able to get over 80mpg. Just barely over, but I definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without this mod.
