Hummingbird Electronics' Idle Timer keeps the vehicle or machine engine running for a pre-specified period after the ignition has been turned to the off position allowing the engine and its turbocharger to cool down safely.

This avoids premature turbo wear and failure and saves you money on costly repairs or replacements.

The timer is also settable, and lockable, putting you in control and it has an override switch if an immediate engine shut down is required.
