The Amber Valley Drivers Mate

The Amber Valley Drivers Mate or ‘runlock system’ is an exciting product which makes the drivers and operators life easier and saves time and money!

This unit will allow the engine to keep running while the key is removed from the ignition, thereby ensuring there is sufficient power to use Beacons, Accessories, Tail Lifts etc. without danger of battery discharge. On re-entering the cab the key must be re-inserted. If not and the handbrake, footbrake or clutch is operated the engine will cut out immediately.

When fitted simply connect all circuits. Start engine and with handbrake on and the clutch and footbrake in the normal off position. Press the red button on the unit, the microprocessor in the unit reads and records the vehicle settings and registers them as the norm. When activated, if these settings change the unit cuts the engine off.
