Coleman - Ignition Kill Switch - Brake Activated
This pressure activated ignition kill switch mounts directly into the front brake line. When the brake line pressure exceeds the normal operating pressure an internal switch opens, shutting the ignition power supply off. The pressure can be adjusted to operate with most braking systems between 500 PSI and 1200 PSI. with the switch pressure set 150 PSI to 200 PSI above normal operating pressure. This switch will reclose and charge the ignition system when pressure is released and the engine will refire. In the case of a stuck throttle this switch can give the driver extra time to slow the car down and react to the problem and shut the master disconnect switch off, take the car out of gear or get the throttle unstuck. It is proven that a drivers first reaction to a stuck throttle is to apply the brakes very hard. A driver does not have time to look for switches or buttons mounted to the steering wheel or else where in the car while he is trying to control the car.
