Cool Add a kill switch inline with my ignition,Help!

Hey everyone,1999 Jeep wrangler sport
I'm a newbie here- I would like to put a kill switch inline with my ignition. I have read several posts on where the best places to put are and even some helpful suggestions on where not to put it. My problem is, I don't know how to find the right wire to cut coming from the ignition switch. I've looked at wiring diagrams from the manual, but actually finding the darn thing is beyond me.I mean I see on the wiring diagram that the color is Blue ? there are alot of other Blue wires down there also.
Could somebody please send me pictures ? Or if that is the wrong wire, tell me the correct wire and most importantly where can I find it.
I just want to add a simple On/Off switch.

I also read to place on the ASD or the starter relay- I found those relays with 50 wires pressed into a harness with no room to add anything .
Thank you very much, open to anyone's suggestions.

You want to cut the ADE circuit. This thread has information for a full system. It also has the diagrams for the ADE wires. You do not need the whole system if yoy do not want. Simply cut the ADE wire for your year and add a switch.

If you want plug and play, Quadratec has an ADE switch kit.

Thanks Neil , wasn't sure what the ADE circuit switch was , went out to Quadratec and look it up to see what it looked liked , then did a google for 'ADE circuit 1999 wrangler' and found this with pictures (i need pictures) of connector 106 location , a radio shack parts list, instructions, the whole bit.
Thanks for the great idea and pointing me in the right direction.
If its not 115 degrees in the garage this weekend ,I'lll try it.(houston,tx)

Unscrew the Power Distribution Center from the passenger-side fenderwell (disconnect the battery first) and flip it over so you can see the wiring underneath.

Cutting any of the wires leading to the ASD (auto shut down) relay and splicing your on-off-switch in between the cut wire halves will do what you want it to do. Select one of the connections to the relay where only one wire is leading to it and cut that wire. Placing an on-off switch into any of the relay's main connections will do the job. The relay is powered by a Dark Blue/Yellow tracer and a Red/Light Green wire on a '97 TJ, not sure if that same color code is used for later years. Of the four wires leading to it, I'd switch either of them.

Just make sure you make a bulletproof splice and insulate it well so it won't cause you problems later. Use a good quality heavy-duty switch, use an adequate gauge of wiring (I would use 16 gauge), and protect the wiring from harm using wire loom, etc. Zip tie it into place.

I make all those suggestions because if your on-off switch circuit develops problems, you're screwed.

fuel pump fuse?

an easier way i found online was to use an inline fuse and switch where the fuel pump spot is in the glove box...can't recall the # right off hand, but it's easy to dig up online or in your owner's manual...

quadratec has a "dome light" switch that works good............
