Kill Switch Compatibility Guide:

If your vehicle is not listed on the Kill Switch purchase page, not to worry! The Kill Switch is most likely compatible with your vehicle but we have not had the chance to verify just yet. The good news is that ‘starter relays’ are usually standardized and shared across multiple vehicles and it comes down usually to only 3 types.

Please refer to the guide below to check yourself as MOST vehicles use one of three “Universal” Relay types.  

How to locate my Starter Relay???
The underside of your vehicle’s fuse box lid should have a diagram identifying which RELAY is the starter relay (sometimes abbreviated “ST” or “STR” or “START”, etc).  You know you have the right relay if you pull it out and try to start your vehicle–if it starts, you have the wrong relay pulled out. 

Relay Type 1

TYPE 1 will be rectangular in shape and the flat pins are arranged symmetrically and all flats facing the same direction in an even rectangular pattern as shown in the photo.

NOTE: Your OEM relay may have a 5th leg, disregard this–as it is not used in the position for the Starter.

Go back to the Kill Switch page, choose “Universal Fit” then choose “Type 1“.

Usually Jeep, Chevy, Chrysler, GM vehicles use this type of relay.

Relay Type 2

TYPE 2 will be rectangular in shape. Note flat pin pairs are facing different directions from the other pairs.

NOTE: Your OEM relay may have a 5th leg, disregard this–as it is not used in the position for the Starter.

Go back to the Kill Switch page, choose “Universal Fit” then choose “Type 2“.

Usually modern (post 2004+) Japanese vehicles such as Toyotas, Lexus, Honda, Kia, Hyundai use this type of relay.  

Relay Type 3

TYPE 3 will be square shaped. Note how 3 flat pins are facing one direction while a single flat pin is facing a different direction.

NOTE: Your OEM relay may have a 5th leg, disregard this–as it is not used in the position for the Starter.

Go back to the Kill Switch page, choose “Universal Fit” then choose “Type 3“.

Usually Dodge, Ford vehicles use this type of relay.
