The switch on the driver side near the floor -- can it be used liberally for anti-theft purposes?

it's just a reset, no turn on and off

On my 1991 Explorer I cut the wire and found the engine wouldn't start. So, I ran a wire up to the center console and put a small black switch in and had a home-made anti-theft device. Don't know if it will work with the 2006 Mustang

FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH FUEL
RESET
This device stops the electric fuel pump from sending fuel to the engine
when your vehicle has had a substantial jolt.
After an accident, if the engine cranks but does not start, this switch
may have been activated.
The fuel pump shut-off switch is
located in the driver’s footwell, by
the hood release
To reset the switch:
1. Turn the ignition OFF.
2. Check the fuel system for leaks.
3. If no leaks are apparent, reset the
switch by pushing in on the reset
button.
4. Turn the ignition ON.
5. Wait a few seconds and return the key to OFF.
6. Make another check for leak

Hey Dustin, that isn't entirely true. I have heard stories back in the day, (I mean late 80's early 90's) of mechanics taking a small hammer and playing practical jokes on friends. They would tap the car in JUST the right spot to trip the fuel reset switch. If you had a small hammer, you COULD tap the switch area, which would trip the switch, and make the car not start. The switch in gereral is sensitive by itself, but when a car is connected to it, the jolt has to be substantial, OR in the RIGHT spot, for it to work. It doesn't hurt to try it, really (at least that is what I have heard).

Mine has tripped several times without reason that I can think of. Once while driving on interstae, as I cam off onto a side road, I suddenly lost power and coasted into a parking lot. The first time I pulled up to a pump, filled up the car and it would not start. I ended up playing with it for two hours trying o figure out why I had no fuel, ended with a tow to the dealer. they replaced the switch, but since then it has happened three more times.
