Ignition switch, fan relay switch, and fuel pump relay switch are located in the center console...

Currently my ignition switch, fan relay switch, and fuel pump relay switch are located in the center console and I'm thinking about relocating them.



Ignition – I want to relocate this switch to a hidden location (for security reasons) and wire this into my stock key switch. I have an MSD 6A box. I only plan on using the “hidden switch” occasionally, but most of the time the switch will be on. I get my new alarm system tomorrow, so I’ll probably move this switch and hook up the key switch when I install the alarm. Is there any problem wiring the ignition back into the key switch?

Fan Relay Switch – I’m not sure if I should leave this on the switch or tie it into the ignition…. I don’t really want it on a temp sensor, because I think it’s better to have it on all the time. What do you think? Any recommedations?

Electric Fuel Pump Switch – I’m not sure if I should leave this on the switch or tie it into the ignition too…. Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Rob

im not sure about rewirering the key switch. to make the interior look clean, i would but the msd box and fuse panel under the passenger side dash. the fan relay, i would make it constant when the car is on. like put it to the radio fuse, so it gets power when the radio is on. you can try redoing them, but if it works now, dont try to fix it. thats just my suggestions.

i wouldnt run the fan all the time you can put the fan control unit like this one fan control this one uses a probe that goes in a radiator fin and you can keep the switch to over ride the control if you need the fan to stay on.

ignition just wire it to one of the red key on wires coming off of the ignition switch with the switch hidden where you want.

i would leave the pump on the switch just make sure it is connected to a relay then the pump.

I found this Fuel Pump Safety Pressure Switch and I'm thinking about hooking it up to the fuel pump circuit. According to the directions , it only turns on during starting and when there is oil pressure (the motor is running). I would leave the toggle switch as an override, just incase this unit fails. What do you think?
