Any ideas on a car security system?

everything you said sounded reasonable, except:
>>If the mixture in the cylinders is lean enough, you can get
>>hot spots and knocking -- which should trigger the knock
>>sensor and cause an engine shutdown.
I don't think the knock sensor causes the engine to shut down -
it is just one of the feedbacks the engine control computer
uses. Typically the spark advance would be reduced in
response to knocking.
