Title: Automotive anti-theft starting system

Abstract

A security starting system for a motor vehicle having a passenger compartment with an ignition switch therein and an engine compartment with an engine including a starter motor housing for protectively enclosing a starter motor controlled by a relay as part of a starter circuit for starting the engine of the motor vehicle is described comprising: transmitting means operative to transmit an electromagnetic signal in response to actuation thereof; receiving means operative to receive the electromagnetic signal transmitted by the transmitting means and to produce an electrical signal during times in which the receiving means receives the electromagnetic signal; and including a timer in the starter motor housing and an antenna connected to the receiving means in the starter motor housing and extending remotely to the starter motor housing for delivering the electromagnetic signal transmitted by the transmitting means; and switch means responsive to the electrical signal for controlling a period of time when the relay may be energized for operating the starter motor to start the engine of the motor vehicle by closing of the ignition switch.
