Fuel pump cable location/color??

Hi,
I'm wiring a security switch for my new JK. I installed two switches in series (hidden in the jeep) which I connected to a relay. Now I need to cut the current to the fuel pump (which is what I did with my older TJ).
The fuse box is quite complicated. I located the connector that includes the fuel pump fuse, but it is not easy to find out which cable it is!!! Does anyone know what color the fuel pump cable is o has a suggestion on where to have access to this cable?? (or any other cable that disables the ignition?)
Thanx!
Erika

your kinda goin overkill with that, the factory anti-theft system works good, without the correct key the jeep wont start , even if you "hot wire" it

Exactly! The thing is, car theft in Mexico City is not funny! I saved a friend's car with one of these switches. They made us get out of the car, we had to leave them the keys, but they could not start the car....by then we were several yards away screaming....
So I wire one of these switches for every car I have.
Thanks guys!

I've got a lot of great ideas from this forum, this weekend I also wired an inverter, prepared two light switches for some lights on my new (to be installed shortly) wilderness rack and modified my smittybuilt GEAR seat covers.

Thanks!
Erika

Is this cause chrysler uses the same loom in the other models that do have the Diesel motor? or was there at one point a plan to have the motor put into the JK? Kinda made me happy seeign it. One day maybe they'll decide to throw it in.

Erika,
Why don't you do a write up on your work. Maybe someone on the forum would like to do the same thing. You go girl. Seen any UFO's lately.

I'll try to do that. I'm working hard on the jeep, since I'm leaving on vacation (UTAH, yes!) next week.
The cool thing is the location of one of the switches. It is mounted in the roll-bar foam, hidden by the padded fabric cover.
I haven't tried to cut the cable yet, since it was raining yesterday.
I see UFOS all the time

What type of switch is is? Excellent location. Please when you get time post in the Write ups section. Enjoy Utah. Thanks

We don't get Diesels in Mexico either...and honestly, I'm totally frustrated with the new 3.8 engine... there's nothing to compare with the old I6...snifff
It feels like a soccer-mom van....

The switch I used is one of those round, flattish 12V 20A switches, the ones you get all over the place. The nice thing is they are low-profile and you would never imagine there is one inserted in the roll-bar foam. I'll post a pic once I dig my camera out of my mess....
The switch, together with another one in series on the Daystar switch panel, activates a relay that in turn cuts the current to the fuel pump. A similar circuit has been working on my TJ for 4 years without problems.

THANKS

Hi guys!
Thanks a lot!
It worked perfectly. That was the cable I was looking for. I felt like those bomb squad guys guessing which cable to cut...but got it right the first time!

By the way, where do you get those great wiring diagrams???
Thanks again!
