help with installing kill switch

my new jeep 2018 was stolen. paid 28k and its worth 18k after it left the lot because renegades hold no value. it may of had 200 miles on it. the insurance doesn't cover what the car is worth. it cover what is sells for used. never buy a last year model new. so I'm going to get another. god help me why.. I'm a jeep fan for life. I need to install a kill switch on it. I have no idea how.. I need to be able to hide the kill switch..

How was it stolen? If they lift/tow there's not much you can do.
Just relocate/hide the OBD port or put a lock mechanism on it.

Disable keyless entry and/or keep the keys in an RFID proof pouch when at home.

Gap insurance can be useful. (Included for free from Jeep/FCA for the 1st year along with VIN etching via EURODATACAR here in France.)

Hi Sorry to hear your Jeep was stolen! Did it have keyless entry? How was it stolen? I'm worried about mine now. I have gap insurance but still.

Hi, when you get another one go to ALA Gap Insurance I bought my 66 Plate Limited last year and paid 177 cover for 3 years and got 18.16 back through topcashback.

Exclamation Hmmm???

You sure have had a fair share of woe's with this vehicle, I must say.



"plastics bits shot out everywhere."

"our Renegade power steering completely locked."

"its not what I feel in love with."

That being said, if I were an investigator, I'd have to question if the car was "stolen", as there are a lot of questions, and no answers. Or, are you just a troll with a wild imagination?



Like I said, a lot of questions, few answers.
