possibly removed ignition wires. Not to sound like a broken record, but the fact that you are trying to un-ground yourself probably should be an indication that you deserve the grounding in the first place. you are still in his house and i can bet he paid for the car.

Several years Ago, car manufacturers started putting "tilt" switches in cars for safety. If the car gets turned over, the switch would kill the engine to prevent fires or explosion if gasoline spillage occurred. The switch would have to be reset after the car was set upright again. Newer cars have mercury switches that auto-reset as soon as the car is turned back on it's wheels. You can unplug the switch and the car won't start. But there are a number of other ways to stop an engine. Cut a wire or pull the plugs are just some of them. Look up your year car for the type of tilt switch you have, but watch out, alarms also use tilt switches so don't get them confused. And find yourself your own apartment. Maybe go in with a friend if you can't afford it yourself.

Open the owners manual and look for the fuel shut off switch. It is a safety device the get tripped (or many cars can be manually tripped) that shuts of the fuel injector pump. Good luck with your rebellion - hope it doesn't end up causing you more pain, as they usually do....parents aren't stupid or mean by default....I am one with two grown is your best interest at the heart of descipline.
