Anyone else willing to drive to Princeton area of NJ to take me up on that offer, let me know.
bdl99, that works for me. I'm not too far from you in Howell, NJ. Just let me know when you are available and i will drive out.

I don't know why you guys don't just cut the wire and do like the pic where you put a electrical connector on both sides and plug it back in when not in use.

I would guess like me some just like to play it safe and prefer no to butcher their car's wiring so early.

Because there isn't a lot of room or wire to play with and it means cutting the original car harness. Cutting the original wire is certainly an option that some have and will take, but this is for people who don't want to.

That's what I don't get unplug the harness cut and install 2 pigtails and reinstall,I don't see the problem,if you cut the wire and don't want it like that anymore plug the 2 pigtails together.

You can't unplug both ends of the existing car harness. You can unplug the plug from the steering lock but the other end is part of the wiring loom. Take a look and you will see what everyone is talking about.

As I said, you can do what you are saying, but you will have to do in the car with little room to play with. If the connectors were not available then I would do as you say, but then I'm good with a soldering iron and car wiring.

I didn't know that the harness doesn't come out,I would still put the electrical connectors on it but I already have a "D" lock.
