Ravelco Installation

How To Install Ravelco Anti Theft Device

         Ravelco Installation is made simple at Ravelco of Corpus Christi. The Ravelco (pronounced Ruh-vel-co) Anti Theft Device is installed in an easily accessible place under or flush mounted in the dashboard. A removable 16-pin male plug (which when not in use connects to your key chain) makes all the electronic connections. A hidden armored steel cable protects the wires from the rear of the RAVELCO base on through to the engine compartment where all the connections are made and camouflaged. When the plug is removed from the RAVELCO, it is impossible to start the vehicle.

         Ravelco installations are unique. The circuits interrupted by the RAVELCO may vary from application to application. Typically, they would include the electronic fuel or injector pump, the ignition circuit, the starter circuit, or even the computer.


         All electrical connections are made in the engine compartment of the vehicle and are connected in and through the factory wiring harnesses. A properly-performed RAVELCO install is virtually impossible to detect since there are no exposed wires. Additionally, the RAVELCO installation is very time-consuming to trace since all of the wires are black. Even trained mechanics have called our offices to question the location of the RAVELCO hookup on a vehicle.

Made in the USA Since 1976

         A Ravelco customer is assured that their plug is unique and that no one else can start their vehicle simply by gaining access to another RAVELCO plug. Competitors' products allow only six or fewer possible plug combinations, and each device sold through a particular car dealer will use the same plug! This is not theft protection!

         Each Ravelco unit is handmade and tested before leaving our factory. The components used in the manufacturing of the Ravelco Anti Theft Device are all made in the U.S.A. and are of the highest quality, tested for performance, and proven in the field since 1976.

         Reliability is a must; unlike competitive products, a RAVELCO will not fail. In fact, a major selling point of RAVELCO is its superior performance against competitive products. When a competitive product fails, the vehicle on which it is installed will stall and cannot be started. Any car dealer or anti-theft device installation facility that has handled a competitive product for any length of time has suffered this embarrassment — and expense — of having to send out a tow truck to retrieve a customer's vehicle. NOT SO WITH THE RAVELCO!

Ravelco Install with Ease

         The Ravelco Anti Theft Device is superior to all the other alarms and anti-theft devices. The reason for this is that the RAVELCO is so simple to use; there are not any codes to remember and there are no secret buttons to push. Whenever you leave your vehicle all you have to do to activate the RAVELCO system is "pull out the plug" and connect it to your key chain. It is like taking part of your engine with you.

         A RAVELCO installation is more effective than any car alarm could ever be. In fact, many of today's car buyers don't have interest or faith in car alarms. And with good reason! How many times have you walked by a car alarm without paying attention? How many times have you ever seen someone actually concerned with a car alarm? In today's noisy, bustling world, car alarms just don't do it. Car alarms simply won't stop vehicle theft. 

         Luckily, RAVELCO installations are easily performed. And with a proven track record of no vehicles ever stolen, the RAVELCO can offer you peace of mind for your vehicle's safety.
