Using Time-Based Starter Disable Feature to Secure Fleets Brian Dziuk | May 22, 2017 5:18:54 PM

If you have a large fleet of vehicles, you may want to make sure that they are not being used outside of business hours. Unauthorized use of these vehicles can lead to excess fuel usage, wear and tear on the trucks, and liability for the company if they are involved in any type of accident. RASTRAC has developed a new tool to easily make sure this will not happen by having the starter disabled at a set time daily. 

Starter Disable Overview

  • This feature requires a vehicle’s tracking device to be wired for the Starter Disable function.
  • The time-range based Starter Disable feature will disable the starter at a programmed start time and enable the starter at a programmed end time.
  • If a vehicle’s engine is running when the starter disable is set to on, it will not turn off the engine. However, the next time the ignition is turned to the start position, the vehicle will not start.
  • During the time range the starter is disabled, the disable can be turned off through RASTRAC as shown below; conversely, you may also turn the disable on at any time using the same step.

Greater Security for Your Business

With a time-based starter disable, you will have greater control over your vehicles when you are off the job site. Imagine having the peace-of-mind knowing that you have one extra piece of security in place for the investment into your fleet.
