Driver Technique

The Anti-Theft feature works in conjunction with an optional Cummins RoadRelay to secure the engine in the idling or shutdown state. Initially enabled using the Cummins INSITE service tool, the Anti-Theft feature can be set to operate in one of three modes:

  • Automatic
  • Semi-automatic
  • Manual

At the time of enabling, the INSITE service tool will be used to enter six customer selected pass-codes, each of equal priority and each capable of locking or unlocking the engine.

In the automatic mode, the engine will always be locked by the ECM on each engine shutdown. With the engine keyed on (but not running), the valid pass-code will need to be entered in order to unlock the ECM and start the engine. The ECM will lock the engine automatically after 20 seconds if it has stopped because of a stall or in the event of an Engine Protection initiated engine shut down.

In the semi-automatic mode (where applicable), Anti-Theft will not be activated without operator action. At each engine shut down, the user will be prompted by a message on the RoadRelay as to whether or not Anti-Theft should be activated. If the feature is to be activated, the operator must then turn the key to ON and press the ENTER key. Once activated, the pass-code will need to be entered in order to unlock the ECM and start the engine.

In the manual mode (where applicable), Anti-Theft will not be activated unless the operator specifically chooses to do so. Activation is facilitated through turning the key ON immediately after shut down and the entering of the customer selected pass-code. If no pass-code is entered, the Anti-Theft feature will not lock the ECM or prevent the engine from starting.

With the engine idling, the user can activate the feature by entering any one of the six valid pass-codes. The engine will then ignore throttle input until one of the six valid pass-codes is once again entered.
