I do hope this isn't too late for an answer.
The immobiliser works in this way.
plug the shorting plug (starter bomb) in to the socket on the starter switch panel.
Latch in the bus, that is push in the Arens cable (AEC Engine) or turn the starter switch to on (later engine type buses). This switches the circuits on so the warning lights will illuminate or the flag raise depending on the charge state but prevents starting of the bus.
Then remove the shorting plug. This will allow the bus to then be started.
The idea is that the plug is needed to allow starting but cannot simply be left plugged in and defeat the idea of security.
If you want it taken out i can supply a different shorting plug that easily allows this. If you want it retained and working I can provide the spare parts needed and well as circuit details.
It isn't really that secure in as much as shorting the correct two of the three pins will allow starting but if you short the wrong pins it should set off the assault alarm as a warning.

It is an immobiliser to the starter system.
Which bus is this on ? We might be able to find out if it has any particular system as fitted by the operator or garage.
Generally it is best to remove them as the units were fitted 20+ years ago and are no becoming unreliable.

|The starter "bomb" works on vehicles fitted with this system and it effectively turns the system off to allow the vehicle to be started.|
