The impact is not about safety in accidents. It's more about someone kicking your car or damaging it in some way (like breaking a window to steal it) while you're not there. So it won't turn the fuel off in that instance.

And to be honest, the fuel kill will only be for cars with electric fuel pumps. For mechanical pumps you would kill the ignition instead.

G'day

I'm wondering how the system would go in a vehicle that spends most of it's time in storage with the battery disconnected.

I've had problems in the past with Alarms that go off or worse don't arm properly when regaining power.

Cheers

Ben

Ben, I can't comment on that personally.
It does have the 850mAh backup battery installed, and apparently draws less than 5ma on standby. That only gives you 170hours worth of backup time without the main power on the unit.

I don't see why it would have issues after being reconnected, but I'm not sure how much use it would be in your situation. You could definitely find it if they connected the battery back up again, but if they towed the car and only cared about stripping it and not driving it then it wouldn't be much use to you as they probably wouldn't bother with the battery.

But wouldn't the perimeter alarm advise you of the movement by SMS or am I confused(I'm known for stupid questions).

Fair call...

Nuts, I was just thinking of not having to wire in a separate system to kill the fuel in the event of an accident.. no biggie, just another switch to install.

I've already got a fully immobilizer installed, I just don't have the GPS tracking, so is this still for me?

Hey all.
Are we now at a point where we need to consider locking this discussion down to forum members so as not to broadcast these systems out to the professional R sole who have a need to steal our cars.
Thoughts guys???

Unless you have an alarm that is motion / tilt sensitive.. nothing is going to stop professionals taking your car (and even then maybe not)

No alarm / immobilzer is going to help with recovery.... only GPS/GPRS tracking is going to help with that..

From what I understand, this wouldn't be considered a deterent (like an alarm), just a recovery aid.

Not a bad idea at all...
No point advertising what people have in their cars..

They probably can, however I was thinking the internet might not advertise what we are currently discussing to the greater population, for a start.

Under normal conditions the perimeter would set off the alarm. But after being stored the backup battery would be flat. As hybrid pointed out, if they tow it with out connecting the battery it would never turn on.

Unfortunately these cars are easy to steal, this system would be one more good deterrent. I'd even like the idea of a window sticker saying the vehicle is fitted with a remote tracking device. Someone looking for a joy ride probably wouldn't wont the grief.

The pro specifically looking for your car would have to factor in finding and disabling it before moving off. Along with it possibly sending off a tamper alarm.


Cheers

Ben
