OK, can you give us some backstory on the angry peasant situation? That must have been scary.

"If you have a remote start feature, or a cool down timer,"
Herb
============================================

Techs;
I recently read about a "Cool Down Timer" device produced and marketed
by BD.
Any of You tech's own one or had dealings with one in Your line of
work?
I'm considering one for my 2005 E350SD 6.0L PSTD since I use it
primarily for heavy TT towing.
When I asked Ford dealer's service manager about it he said, "I get so
tired of fixing problems caused by all the various aftermarket
gadgets."

I am curious.

Well I have Chilly Dog (sp?) with the alarm. Basically if you punch the door unlock and lock keys the van will remote start and run for an hour. The hour is preset and you can change it (say 10 minutes).

If the van is running and you punch the remote start combo, the keys can be removed and the van will stay running for the preset time. This allows one to, say, apply the high idle while shopping at Kohl's for sandals.

The application for cool down would be to set your remote start/run to 10 or 15 minutes and activate it before you get out of the van. Lock up and walk away. 15 minutes later your van turns itself off, ostensibly cooler from having idled.

Anytime the remote start is running you can kill it by hitting the combo buttons again or stepping on the brake.

And I don't know what BD is, but Bulldog Security markets lots of security and remote start products. They're inexpensive and you get what you pay for. I've had countless problems with the application in my Jeep. Just FYI.

A lot of techs don't understand aftermarket devices therefore they must be bad.

A lot of aftermarket devices are improperly installed.

A lot of aftermarket devices have little engineering behind them, a lot have substantial engineering behind them.

For any tech to make a blanket statement like that tells me they are uninformed.


BD is formally BD Power. A major aftermarket diesel engine and transmission company.

I bought a Ford Remote start Kit for my 2007 in Utro. It works off the lock button, You just have to hold the button down. It will also stay running if you want when you remove the keys, Not sure whether it is preset for the time or adjustable. It was about $240 list, Can't find the receipt at this time. My Ford Guy even Printed a set of installation instructions. FORD Part # 7L52-19G364-AA Type B. This thing has all the boards and relays and wires and screws. Being OEM you should even be able to get replacement parts easily. Instructions show it being compatable with many Ford Models.

Anyone check out the DeWalt MobileLock Device?

http://www.dewalt.com/us/products/tool_ ... ctID=14875

Looks similar to other Alarm tracking systems but it looks pretty good.

About the only bad thing is the $19.95 charge per month and its Cellular based but the features seems pretty good.

Sensors, GPS tracking, Sound Alarm, Cell Email Notification and more..

Dewalt Alarm

For what its worth

I had a recent construction project where this (site lock model) was used. It seems a little over kill for a small van interior. The sending unit is a little smaller than a brick, and the control unit is shoebox size.

It did help cut out all of the thefts from the construction site. Couple of false alarms a month.

Sorry to bump an old topic. However, I'm finally ready to install an anti-theft device on our SMB. I hate alarm systems that make noise. I'm most concerned with someone actually driving away with our van, especially when we are out of the country or someplace else remote where this could cause major problems.

Based on what I've read here, either of these two systems would work perfectly and are similar. The Powerlock seems a little more convenient since it would be attached to my key ring and I wouldn't have to remove the "chip" each time I wanted to disable the van. Yes I'm lazy. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? For example is one better than the other? Thanks as always for the help
