DENTON, Tex. – To keep its customers extra safe, Peterbilt now offers a new anti-theft system for models 579 and 567 with Paccar MX-13 engines.
“The anti-theft system integrates with the MX-13 Engine and the vehicle’s Driver Information Center to require operators to enter a unique passcode to start the truck,” says Peterbilt Chief Engineer Landon Sproull. “If an incorrect code is entered, the engine will be disabled until the correct code is used.”
Sproull also added that the engine must be started within six minutes of entering the code or the code has be entered again.
Passwords can be changed through any Peterbilt dealership service department.
The anti-theft system is currently in production and available for order.
