Vehicle shut-down functionality for peps-equipped vehicles
Abstract
A vehicle comprises a plurality of control module structures. A first control module structure is configured for determining a current motive mode of the vehicle. A second control module structure is configured for determining information indicating that a driver of the vehicle has left the vehicle unattended while the vehicle is in a motive-enabled mode. A third control module structure is configured for causing a secure idle mode to be implemented as a function of determining the information indicating that the driver of the vehicle has left the vehicle unattended while the vehicle is in the motive-enabled mode. Implementing the secure idle mode can include inhibiting the vehicle from being driveable until a driver access code is successfully received and authenticated by the vehicle.

First and second code comparators are sequentially responsive to keypad-entered first and second different codes. The first code enables operation of the engine. When a distance sensing device generates a signal representing traversal of a preset distance, this blocks the further operation of the engine based on the first code. The driver must enter a second code upon receipt of a warning that engine disablement is imminent. To prevent carjacking in which the driver is forcibly ejected from a ca...
