Jetskis, (and motorcycles, and similar vehicles with kill switches built in to an FI system), have a safety loop, that when broken, stops the computer. On my Burgman in particular, this loop goes through the kill switch, side stand switch, and tip-over sensor.

Cars don't have this loop, so the same principles don't apply, unfortunately.

On this note, however, I'm looking at getting a Subaru Outback, anyone know how well their computers deal with having the injector power cut?
