We are pleased to announce another new feature for all ME7.x ECU's
The new Anti-Hijack feature works as follows:
if the car is started as normal, it will drive normally for 30s after which the throttle will become unresponsive. The engien will not stall or cut out, but there is no power available. If engine is turned off and back on, the 30s timer does not reset, the pedal will remain unresponsive.
In order for the system not to activate, the driver has to perform a procedure to disarm before the car is started involving pressing of the pedals. The combination is unique. Disarmament is signalled on the dash.
Additionally, for cars with a rear 02 sensor which is no longer used, this can be connected to the door switch. The idea is that when a door is opened, the system rearms. This ensures the system is active if you are forced out of your car with by a hi jacker. They will get a safe distance down the road, and be forced to abaodon the car when the throttle no longer responds.
The feature is available as an option to our custom maps.
