Default Re: Got Keyless entry & go? Your car could be easy to steal

Saw it earlier. Very scary considering how often I leave my keys in the room just adjoining our garage.

From now on I'll keep them upstairs. Only a matter of time before such gadgets come to India.

Pretty limp statement from BMW

Quote:
BMW admits it is powerless to stop thieves using gadgets which are widely available online from stealing its latest keyless models
  • There has been a surge in thefts by criminals using 'relay boxes' to steal vehicles
  • It works by extending the signal from owners' key fobs from inside their homes
  • Despite the 'regrettable' situation BMW have said that can't take responsibility

If I was BMW, I would be revising the systems to allow keyless entry (that is the main convenience) but key based start/stop

Interesting thread, searching since long to find and to post my query !

I came across below YouTuve video, in which a thief is stealing one ultra modern car having key-less entry system, in few minutes with the help of key fob range extender. Though the video is quiet old (Apr 2016), but still want to understand how safe are our cars and is there something we should be doing to prevent this stuffs?

And another video from India itself, though it was just a prank for them. But being a owner of one such modern car with key-less entry system, I am little worried.

Note to moderator: Please feel free to delete the post, if it is inappropriate or if it has been discussed earlier elsewhere. Thanks

Tesla already has a security feature where the driver is required to enter a PIN before the car moves. I have enabled been using it. the hope is that it makes driving away like this a little bit harder. If they cannot drive away, with the sentry mode enabled all they can do is " say cheese" to all the cameras.

This particular car was a loaner car from Tesla and hence the PIN was not enabled. Looks like the thieves were tracking the loaner and other similar shared cars where they could be sure that the PIN will not be enabled.
