Thieves are always finding new ways to steal what you have worked hard for. Now they have discovered a new way to steal your van via overriding the manufacturer’s immobilisation system by connecting a Laptop/PDA/EDI Key into the OBD socket and programming a new key into the ECU.
They start by picking / decoding the manufacturer’s door lock with a Tibbe pick which unlocks all the doors, disables the alarm and gives them the key combination for your van so they can get a key cut with a new chip or just pick the ignition with the code obtained from the drivers door — All without causing any damage or making any noise
Once the key is cut they return to the van, unlock the doors with the new key and then connect their Laptop/PDA/EDI Key into the OBD / ECU connection where they can program in the new key or ‘kid’ the vehicle into thinking the correct chipped key is present, start the vehicle and drive it away!
This Patented OBD/ECU Connection Protection Device encompasses the OBD plug in a Secure Box which is then attached to the crash bar behind the dashboard and can only be unlocked with the correct high security key.
No wires are cut or tampered with which doesn’t invalidate manufacturers warranties.
This Device can be supplied and fitted for just £155!
