Paranoid: is there a fuse that I can pull so my car won't start if someone were to try and drive it?


Asked by Dec 09, 2014 at 05:56 PM about the 1998 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr Outback Limited AWD Wagon

Question type: General

My husband and I are going through a divorce and I have my 98 subby legacy outback
in my name but I am still paranoid he will try and claim it as half his. He refuses to
give me his copy of the key back. Is there a fuse I can pull so if he were to try and
take it, he wouldn't be able to, or at least delay him?? I LOVE my car and it is the one
thing I will not let him have. My name is the only one on it and I bought it. Any
suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!!

Remove,number ,3 or 4 relay,will disable car,it is under dash driver,s side kick panel.


Fuel relay look,s like this,


A more expensive option is to recode a new master key, about $200. It would turn his key into a valet key - unless you also rekey the locks (a lot more $$$).

Buy a club ... that thing that locks your steering wheel to the brake pedal ~~~~~~ Ebay,,,, $9 bucks~~


THIS is what you need:


Ya I think I will go with the monkey. Bahaha, thank you guys!


There us a jumper wire in the panel under the hood its a jumper wire if you pull that wire it will not start they can turn it over and everything will seem good but wont start and unless you know subarus you will not notice a problem with it if you start pulling fuses he will no you are trying to keep it from him
