Our NEW co developed product/solution allows implementation of a steering lock
“EMULATOR” device PCB within the Electronic Steering Lock assembly.
Emulator Printed Circuit Board is to be installed (replacing the original PCB) within the original steering lock module assembly in order to emulate the physical movement of the
lock actuator. As per original design, ignition on sequence is only
allowed by the Kessy control module if the control module receives a signal back from
the electronic steering lock re open position. Once the key is removed from the ignition switch, the steering lock actuator moves to the locked position. If there is a malfunction
within the unlock/lock sequence, a fault is thrown within the control module and vehicle becomes immobilized.
device emulates the physical movement of the electronic steering lock eliminating all moving components. Original functionality of the immobilizer system
is fully retained with the exception of physical column locking. Emulator device eliminates commonly failing/moving components within the electronic steering lock module
(relays, magnetic hall sensors and probe, motor, etc). Eliminating all wear and tear components may offer improved
longevity over time. In some cases, the vehicle owner may prefer an emulator type device (over the reman/repair option) due to elimination of moving/wear/tear components and in some cases the physical column
locking mechanism is already broken (experiencing “ratcheting” type sound due
to broken/stripped lock ring within the column when the steering lock is
Installation of the EMULATOR device requires the
Microprocessor and 3 pin connector installed within the ORIGINAL steering lock module PCB module to be transplanted onto the emulator device
PCB. The new PCB is then installed into original locking module assembly for
reinstall onto the steering column. Immobilizer system is fully retained, with the
exception of physical locking of the steering column.
Requires removal and transplant of ORIGINAL MICROPROCESSOR and 3 pin connector from Steering
Lock Module to EMULATOR device PCB. Professional soldering skills and equipment required to perform the transplant.
