[DML] Re: Dead battery fix was:Lauren's Car



Wayne - Actually, we have had a remotely operated battery cutoff switch 
for quite some time.  It comes in three forms - operated "manually" 
using a hidden toggle switch (K1025DP), operated by the Wings-A-Loft 
Basic / Elite (K2913DP), and the Wings-A-Loft DeLuxe (K2914DP).  The 
cutoff switch itself is completely hidden in the battery compartment.  
These systems come with instructions on how to preserve power to the 
clock, stereo presets, and the remote keyless entry (of course).  They 
work great.  The switch uses no power at all when either switched ON or 
OFF, and only uses a tiny bit during the actual switching event.  It is 
marine rated for hostile and corrosive environments.  I imagine that 
you could use the K1025DP (manual) in conjunction with the door light 
switch, as somebody had suggested, but you would lose the central 
electric locking feature when you close the door, which might be a 
nuisance.  A timer activation would also be possible, although I am 
hesitant about passive arming things.  Anyway, there you go.  I just 
thought some clarification might be helpful.

that turns off power to everything but the low drain kill switch? Every 
time you press the lock button on your remote, you essentially 
disconnect the battery.  Yeah, I know there are issues with clocks, or 
alarms, but that could be gotten around. Maybe also an option to self-
kill if not used for, say, an hour. It would also be a security 
enhancement.
