Keyless Car Theft

#1 Post by CharlieOneSix » Thu Nov 08, 2018 10:42 pm

There was a program on ITV tonight about how keyless car crime could be reduced. I was amazed that the two key relay boxes the crims use to steal keyless cars can be bought on the internet for £90.

It seems the problem is that keyless key fobs such as mine never switch off. The solution is to modify the key electronics so that the key switches off after a certain time by means of a motion sensor, thereby making the relay boxes useless.

So simple - I know I can buy a Faraday bag to block the signal but why the hell aren’t the motor manufacturers rushing out key upgrade kits?!
