Hybrid Car Shut Down Process Film

Blue Print has published a film to demonstrate the hybrid shut down process on the Toyota Prius, Toyota Auris and Lexus CT200h models.

The brand warns that the de-energisation procedure must be carried out for your own safety.

Under no circumstances should you work on the high voltage system without the correct equipment and wearing the correct protective clothing, as you will be exposed to voltages in excess of 200V which can cause death or very serious injury.

Cataytic Converter Alarm Fitting Service From aide auto

Catalytic Converter Anti-Theft Alarm

Thieves are targeting catalysts located in the exhaust system under the vehicle because of the high value of the precious metals they contain.

Thieves simply cut the catalytic converter from the exhaust pipe of a parked car and sell them on to scrap metal dealers.

Taller vehicles (4x4s) are particularly vulnerable as the converters are more accessible. Because they tend to have larger engines, they contain more of the precious metals too.
Information obtained from 40 UK police forces revealed thefts UK had more than doubled between 2010 and 2012.

Some parts of the country saw a significant rise – in Bedfordshire and South Yorkshire thefts increased more than tenfold.

They more than tripled across Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Leicestershire during the same period.

A Department of Transport spokesman said it was not illegal to drive without a catalytic converter but you could be stopped by the police and prosecuted for breaking the law on harmful emissions. Most vehicles will also fail a MOT test without a catalytic converter.

The Anti-Theft Catalytic Alarm “CatGuard”, is fitted to a vehicle in less than an hour and if thieves attempt to remove the Catalytic Converter theft alarm will be activated. This will result in a 114 decibel siren giving a deafening warning to drive the thieves away.

CatGuard the Catalytic Converter Theft alarm has additional outputs to trigger other security devices. For example these outputs may be used to protect the spare wheel or to trigger an alarm if the bonnet catch is released.

Catalytic Converter Theft could seriously affect a business by downtime or the cost!
