S10 Kill Switch

Hey Everyone!

I just installed a kill switch on my '95 S10 4-banger pickup truck.

I shot video of it and will post that sometime for you.

In the meantime, I will go test some engine-off-coasting.

This is using a momentary-on switch on the stick shift to interrupt the fuel injection wire through a relay.

The advantages of this over using the key-off,back-on is that my trip odometer will keep running and my radio will stay on. It has about a 5 second "reboot" time for the radio to come on when you turn the key to "on"!

Now I can save gas without missing my radio program.

I will go for a ride and let you know how it goes!
