Idle Smart announced Wednesday the release of Cold Weather Guard, a feature that helps prevent issues with starting a truck after long idle periods in cold temperatures.

“The Cold Weather Guard feature of our Idle Smart solution is a much less expensive way to ensure a truck will start after sitting in cold temperatures,” says Ryan Bennett, VP product and marketing at Idle Smart. “Without the need for fuel line or tank heaters, electric shore power-based systems or someone to go out and start the truck, Idle Smart automatically starts the engine at a pre-set temperature and runs it for a pre-determined amount of time.”

With Cold Weather Guard, Idle Smart customers have the ability to have the truck start at a specific outside temperature and run for a desired amount of time.

Drivers can use the idle reduction solution’s in-cab display and menu driven format to program a starting temperature and run interval, the company says.

The Idle Smart solution includes under dash and display units, the Idle Smart ProSmart Harness for ECM communication, Idle Smart Fuel Optimization Software and all necessary system installation components. The unit can be quickly and easily installed and is transferable between vehicles.
