Fuel pump relay?

It's in the rear fuse box and should be marked.

Without it, no way they can get the engine started.

Where is the fuse box located for this fuse and is there any downside to pulling this fuse from M-F each week, since i only drive the car on weekends?

Thx

It’s the 1970’s all over again. Lolol. Next we will be putting “The Club” on our steering wheels

This is a good anti-theft idea for anyone that has to leave their car outside

My advice, gut out a spare relay and put it in the place of the good relay. If you leave an empty spot, these thieves will figure out that the relay is missing if they have enough time, and I wouldn't doubt that the pros will be carrying spares.

The down side is having to go to the trouble of removing the fuse or relay after use and then installing these before use.

Also, I doubt the fuse holder and relay socket are designed with multiple removal/insertions in mind. At some point the connectors will wear/become loose and then you have to deal with this.

While pulling a fuse/relay means the engine can't be started the car is still easy to steal. It can be winched up on a flat bad or picked up by a tow truck with a wheel lift and hauled away in nearly no time.

Added: How long is nearly no time? A video...

Challengers being towed...

Yes, this. Even then, if the starter is cranking but the engine isn't turning over, they'll still probably swap out fuses anyway. But any time added to a potential theft is always in your favor.

This is a good temporary measure and adds to any security you have on the car. If you’re going to pull relays, you should definitely consider adding a kill switch. It’s on my list of to-do’s when my DDHC arrives (if it ever gets built).

Be patient, mine came 3 weeks ago, took 15 weeks

The wait is grueling. I ordered on 6/28 so I’m expecting to be one of the last off the line this year.
