Keyless Entry

Post by chillyman50 » Mon Feb 19, 2018 10:18 am

HI really an FYI to all owners.

For any of you that opted for the keyless entry on your cars , these are much easier to steal from outside your home. :evil: ON Rip off Britain about 6 months ago, they demonstrated how easy and the different methods that can be used to steal a car. :!:

BBC have reported this morning that thefts of these cars has gone up significantly. :cry:

Best to have them garaged, add an immobiliser, and or wheel lock.

I do not have keyless entry because of this, and have opted for additional security.

just trying to be friendly :D

thanks. It really does support what the BBC and rip off Britain have said and demonstrated. You can buy a container t place the keys in to stop the signal . That was just one method though.

Hi, if anyone with keyless entry is interested you can lock the car with the button on the key then immediately press your finger on the indent on the door handle. This disables the keyless entry until you next unlock the car with the key.

I think there's also a sequence you can press on the key to disable it from sending a signal.

Thats really handy to know, I must give it a try later.

You can also turn it off completely with either VCDS or OBDeleven but still keep the keyless start stop.

So you need to pop the key hole cover off every time?

I will give that a go. For our keyless entry cars I have been keeping the keys in one of the signal blocker pouches .

Hi 182_Blue, you don't need to take the key hole cover off - when using the key it's just pressing the locking symbol button on the key fob.

You should know it's worked as, after you've locked with the fob and pressed the door handle, the car won't unlock when you're stood next to it. You'll have to press the unlocking symbol on the fob to unlock it.

No you just use the button on the key.
