Which Fuse Disables Ignition?
I'm going to be parking the Celi for about a week in a public spot while we go rafting. I want to disable the ignition to reduce the chance of someone stealing it (I don't have time to get a kill switch installed, and wouldn't want to rely on one anyway). Does anyone know if there is a fuse I can pull to cut the power to the ignition coils, or something similar to disable the car from starting?

I'm looking at the fuse box layout in the other thread about the fuse box, and wondering if "IG2" will disable sparkplug ignition. I'm assuming "EFI" are the fuel injection fuses. Is the "ST" fuse the one for the starter?

There is a fuse you can pull to disable the ignition. I just don't know which one. It should be in the owner's manual. Just make sure to actually try to start your car once you've pulled it in case you pulled the wrong one.

Put a club on your steering wheel. That will also help.

I hope your celi stays safe and sound!

the fuse for this is most likely in the fuse box under the Hood... (if that helps) you could also dissconnect and remove the battery and place it inside ur car, or in the bushes somewhere so who ever finds ur car they cant open it, without the keys, but if they end up opening it, yes there will be no alarm...

not sure which fuses but taking off the battery would do the trick..

put in a club, auto lock, and a battery powered flashing LED maybe? happywink

If you have a g/f just park it at her house. Try to atleast park it at a friends house. thats much more safe. like they said. Disconnect the battery and put it inside your apartment or something so they can't find it.

taking off the battery would also disable the alarm. Check the owners manual and just pull some extras if you are in debate grin

removing the battery will also prohibit anybody from driving it. Unless the have a spare battery sitting around.

pull the ecu fuse (15amp) and take one of the coil packs.

The odds of a thief having a 00+ Celica coil pack are 1 in a million spineyes

pop the Hood, open the fuse box on the lower right of the car..take out the big purple fuse in the bottom side of the box. this is your starter fuse...no one will be able to start the car or hotwire it.

Don't forget to leave that fuse somewhere safe at home. It would suck to lose it while rafting!

pull out the EFI fuse. Without fuel injection, the car wouldn't start. this is easy, and we does it all the time when doing engine compression test.
