Why You Need a Ghost 2 Immobiliser Fitting Near Me

Modern day thieves can rob vehicles within 1 minute. They use the vehicle’s OBD port to hack into the ECU & then duplicate a key, all using a hidden laptop in the car.

An Autowatch Ghost immobiliser stops this by sending a sequence of pin codes through the buttons on your vehicle (steering wheel and central console). It is completely undetectable by anyone in your car.

No key fobs or LED indicators to indicate the location of the vehicle.

The ghost immobiliser is the best method to stop keyless entry theft and key copying. This device is designed to safeguard your vehicle from these kinds of attacks, by preventing the engine after a valid pin code has been entered. This is a highly efficient method of protecting your vehicle, and insurance companies recognize it as a precautionary measure that can help reduce the cost of your policy.

The way that the ghost operates is through connecting to your vehicle’s CAN data network. Once installed by us at Car Theft Solutions it will only begin when you press the exact sequence of buttons using your unique override code. This means that any attempt to start the vehicle without entering this code will be greeted with a loud alarm, and the engine won’t start. The criminal then realizes they have been caught and will most likely leave the vehicle.

One of the main advantages of this system is that it doesn’t transmit any signals like the tracker, which means that thieves can’t utilize RF signal receivers in order to locate your Ghost device. It also does not send out any IR (infrared) signals like the typical remote key fobs for control or trackers do, making it very hard to bypass or hack.

Another benefit of the ghost is that it comes with an option for valet parking that can be activated when you hand your vehicle over to a valet service or parking. This will turn off the immobiliser CAN for 30mph and allow you to use your vehicle just as normal by using your key fob. When the vehicle is parked up again, the ghost immobiliser fitting near me will regain full functionality.

No hacking, cloning or modifying

The Autowatch Ghost immobiliser is one of most advanced on the market. It shields your vehicle from hacking and key cloning, making it nearly impossible to take. The only way to steal your car is to physically remove it. Even then, they would not be able to start the engine.

This is because unlike other immobilisers that simply stop your car from starting if you don’t have a fob, the Ghost’s clever system actually shuts off the engine control unit to prevent the vehicle from being started. The system transmits a message through buttons on the steering wheel, door panel or the centre console. It is only disarmed using the proper pin code configuration.

Its sleek and subtle design allows it to seamlessly into your car without the need for additional keys or LED indicators. It functions independently of the factory tracker or alarm. It’s a CAN-bus immobiliser, which means it sits in the control network of your vehicle and doesn’t interfere with existing devices such as your car’s key fob or alarm.

Unlike other systems that depend on code grabbing or RF scanning this technology is completely undetectable by thieves since it sends an unobtrusive sequence of pin codes via existing buttons on your vehicles steering wheel doors, door panels, or the central console. The Ghost is a revolutionary product that shields your vehicle from keyless entry theft and smart key theft. It does this by generating an unique pin code which needs to be entered in order to disarm the device.

The number of keyless entry vehicles that are on the road is growing. Thieves are getting more sophisticated and use devices to clone your vehicle which can be bought online or in classifieds for less than PS15. The key fob that is cloned can be used to gain access to the vehicle. The standard immobiliser will stop the car from starting if the person who stole it has the original key fob. This isn’t enough protection and it’s not difficult for criminals jam or spoof signals to unlock the car.

Valet mode

An immobiliser that is standard on your vehicle is an electronic chip that transmits a signal when you hit your key fob button. The system then searches for that specific code sent from the key to start the vehicle. If the correct signal isn’t received, the system will cut off and prevent the engine from beginning. This is the principle behind all aftermarket immobilisers and is a vital security measure to ensure that your vehicle can’t be stolen even if a burglar has your keys or a device to boost your key fob signal.

However, a ghost immobiliser doesn’t just stop it but it also goes a step further. The system, which is located on the CAN bus of your Mercedes, is programmed with a unique pin code that needs to be entered to start the vehicle. The sequence is then encrypted in your app, and no anyone else will be able to access it without the same unique pin as you.

The system will also stop signal jamming, cloning and hacking (which thieves could use to bypass the immobiliser in your car). This means that if a thief does somehow get hold of your car keys or key fob, they won’t be capable of starting your vehicle, even if they are in the vicinity of the distance of a few feet. They could only get your car on flatbed trucks, which is highly unlikely.

Valet mode comes as a standard feature with your ghost immobiliser. When it is activated the glove box and trunk of your car will be locked. This means that anyone who tries to steal your car will not have anything personal to take. It also limits the speed of your Tesla to ensure that it cannot be driven at speeds of more than 70mph and disables ludicrous mode. It will also hide your work and home addresses as well as make your driver profiles secure, and lock your Tesla dashboard to ensure that no one else can access the private data.

If you would like to make use of your car for valet parking or for service purposes, simply select the ‘Valet/Service’ option in the dashboard app and then enter the 4-digit valet pin you have on the touchscreen. The alarm will no longer work, but the car won’t begin until you have entered an authentic pin. This is ideal for those who need to give their vehicle to others, such as taxi drivers and garage mechanics.

The first aftermarket CAN-bus immobiliser in the world

The Autowatch Ghost is the world’s first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser and offers security that is unparalleled by any other product available today. It protects your car from key cloning, hacking, and even key theft. It does this by utilizing your vehicle’s current interface. It does not require additional fobs or remotes and instead works with the vehicle’s data network CAN. This makes it a’silent’ gadget.

The device is an in-built circuit board that connects to your car’s engine management system (ECU) and functions in a non-silent manner. Once activated, it will stop your vehicle from starting until a specific PIN is entered. This is a unique number that you will be given when you make an appointment for installation. This number is required to activate valet, turn off the alarm, or let you to leave in a friend’s car (if they also have Ghost installed).

It is designed in a way that it cannot be detected by anyone looking at your car’s interior. does not transmit radio signals, and can only be heard when it’s being activated. It can be put in many different places, making it nearly impossible to identify. It is also a low-maintenance device and can be fitted in conjunction with other systems such as a tracker (Brand dependant) to provide an all-inclusive anti-theft solution.

Many people choose to fit an immobiliser ghost because they believe that standard security isn’t enough to stop their joy and pride from being taken. While physical deterrents such as steering wheel locks and wheel clamps are an excellent option, they are not really considered “theft proof” by thieves since they can be defeated easily using the proper tools. A ghost immobiliser is not an easy target for thieves since it is integrated into the vehicle and, if activated would stop the starter motor or the fuel system.
