1. An improved climate control, safety, and communications system for a vehicle having an interior passenger cabin, said system comprising:
a. a detecting means comprising at least one temperature sensing mechanism for detecting the climate conditions for a vehicle as temperature data, and at least one occupant sensing mechanism for detecting the presence of at least one occupant inside the vehicle cabin as occupancy data, wherein said detecting means continuously transmits said temperature data and said occupancy data to a data collecting means;
b. said data collecting means for monitoring and evaluating said temperature data for exceeding a temperature threshold and said occupancy data for exceeding an occupant threshold, and for implementing an action parameter to independently send a command to a controlling means, with said data collecting means comprising a CPU, a control connector, and a communication means for notifying an operator of the status of said temperature data and said occupancy data, with said communication means also for sending a notification to the operator,
c. said controlling means for selectively controlling and adjusting the climate conditions inside the vehicle cabin, said controlling means comprising a plurality of relays, a cooling mechanism, and a heating mechanism, with one of the plurality of relays being a backup relay; and
d. a charging means comprising at least two power sources for charging said system and for powering said system when the vehicle engine is turned off, with at least one of said power sources comprising a primary battery with an alternator, a secondary battery coupled to both said primary battery and said temperature sensing mechanism, and a backup battery coupled to said primary battery.
