How it WorksA countdown sequence is initiated when the parking brake (or other switch that is ground when engaged) is set OR command signal is received from "Park" position (switch closure to +). If the signal is removed before the time period expires the unit is reset and the engine is not shut down. The unit is connected to the Run, Fuel Pump, or Coil circuit on the engine or the ECM Stop input.
