Title: FMVSS 114, Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention, Keyless Ignition Systems  
Abstract:

FMVSS No. 114, Theft protection and rollaway prevention, has provisions governing the operation of ignition systems in vehicles. This rulemaking would address emerging safety concerns that NHTSA has identified using consumer compliance data regarding keyless ignition controls that are not directly addressed by this standard. The concerns are drivers who are unable to shut down the propulsion system of their vehicle in the event of any on-road emergency; drivers who shut off the propulsion system without putting their vehicle in park and walk away from the vehicle, leaving it prone to roll away; and drivers who do put their vehicle in park, but inadvertently leave the propulsion system active, increasing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning in a closed environment. We anticipate that these new requirements would have little or no anticipated cost, since they are based on a new Society of Automotive Engineers Recommended Practice J2948-20110. We believe that manufacturers already intend to follow that practice voluntarily. The benefits for these new provisions would be reduced consumer confusion with these new controls and reduced potential risk of death or injury. However, because these systems are not widespread in current vehicles, their benefits cannot yet be quantified readily.
