As an advancement in automobile industry, real time vehicle safety technology has arrived a long way. Vehicles become very essential part of human life hence vehicle’s safety is priority for its owner. Nowadays vehicle theft can happen anytime from anywhere such as common parking areas and some of the instable places. This paper is aimed for a novel Anti-Theft Vehicle Locking System .Here, with high speed reliable Control Area Network (CAN), a sensor based mechanism is interfaced with Engine Control Module (ECM) using ARM7 TDMI microcontroller. In order to prevent vehicle from theft fuel flow sensor observes ignition of engine and attached GSM sends an alert message to owner. In case of stolen, real time vehicle tracking with global positioning system enables owner to control the engine with mobile phone so vehicle will not work any longer. This system functionality makes vehicle locking technique more efficient and provides a complete security from theft
