Default being proactive

i've been thinking about putting a hidden switch in series with the ignition to interupt the power to the starter solenoid. reason: keep son and friends from thrashing on my cart without my permission. sounds harsh , i know, but the reason i'm swaping motors is because they blew up the head and blew out the crankcase on the stock motor. hoping this is a short lived phase....but then i had to replace a balljoint on the steering linkage on my cub 149 garden tractor.....and key broken off in it's ignition.

my son is a teenager, and knows everything. if anyone has anything that they need help with, or questions answered i can direct you to him.

That sounds like like a good idea If I had a teenager I wouldn't waste time and $ on a golf cart. No sir, I would go straight to "how build a time machine"

thinking about military academy. let's see $28,000.00 per year......i'd only have to work 466 hours of overtime to make this happen. it could be done. please, forward those time machine plans. i think i still have some extra flux-capacitors, and some left over J.B. weld from the golf cart rebuild.

chain them to a tree, with unremovable shock collars with prox switches that activate 10 feet from cart.

You are at a hard point in your life with your son, you didn't say his age.
I indulged my son and lost him to drugs and alcohol. He is now 44 years old and living on the street.
I do not want to be a downer, but you have to find a way to instill some responsibilty now.

Kev, is there a way to just change out the key style? I think any hidden switch will be "found" eventually! There is an old thread here somewhere that had some very good anti-theft ideas.......

They make different ignitions where only your key will work. But then again its only two phillips screws and then there you go your cart is gone!! I think the best thing is a fuse from the batt is an idea.

Yeah, but I think we a talking about keeping honest people "honest" here........On my Vanny, I spliced in a cigarette lighter to the starter solenoid wire and mounted it right by the key start on the seat pedestal. You have to know to push it in to get the starter to engage. Very discreet, and if you want you can take the lighter portion with you....... This would be a pain with a pedal start though.....
