Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown

Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown, enhancements to OnStar's Stolen Vehicle Assistance service, help authorities recover stolen vehicles quickly to reduce the risk of damage, and help avoid high-speed chases that can result in injuries and fatalities. Subscriber reports stolen vehicle to authorities and requests Stolen Vehicle Assistance from OnStar.

  • OnStar uses GPS technology to pinpoint the vehicle's location and provide it directly to authorities.
  • OnStar sends a Remote Ignition Block signal, making it impossible to restart the stolen vehicle's engine once it has been turned off.
  • If the vehicle is moving and conditions are safe, authorities can request Stolen Vehicle Slowdown, where OnStar sends a remote signal to slow the vehicle gradually.
