What is the Auto Watch Ghost Immobiliser?
The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is a device that provides an additional layer of security to your vehicle. It is designed to prevent unauthorised access to your car by disabling the ignition system. The device is installed discreetly and works by requiring a unique code (created by the vehicle owner) to be entered before the vehicle can be started.
The installation process of the Autowatch Ghost immobiliser is relatively simple, and it can be done by our certified professional installers at Car Theft Solutions. The device is compatible with most vehicles, and it doesn’t require any additional wiring.
The first step is to find a suitable location to install the device, at Car Theft Solutions, we offer a FREE mobile fitting service completely flexible to you. The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is small, and it can be installed in a variety of locations, including under the dashboard or inside the glove compartment. Once the location is determined, our installer will need to remove the necessary panels and locate the ignition wires.
The Autowatch Ghost immobiliser comes with a wiring diagram that makes it easy to connect the device to the ignition system. Our Car Theft installers will need to identify the correct wires and splice them into the device. It is important to ensure that the wiring is done correctly to avoid any electrical problems.
Programming the Device
After the wiring is completed, the device will need to be programmed. The Autowatch Ghost immobiliser comes with a unique code that will need to be programmed into the device. Our local installers will also need to program any additional codes that the owner may want to use.
Using the Auto Watch Ghost Immobiliser
Once the Autowatch Ghost immobiliser is installed, using it is simple. To start the vehicle, the driver will need to enter the unique code into the device. The device will then send a signal to the engine management system to allow the vehicle to start. If an incorrect code is entered, the device will not send the signal, and the engine will not start.
If someone attempts to tamper with the Ghost immobiliser, it does not provide a notification directly. However, the device is designed to enter a “sleep” mode after a period of time to conserve the car battery. If the Ghost immobiliser detects any attempt to start the engine during this sleep mode, it will wake up and prevent the engine from starting.
Additionally, if the car owner has installed the Ghost immobiliser along with a compatible tracking system or alarm, they will receive a notification from those systems if they are triggered by any attempted tampering or theft of the vehicle. Trackers and Ghost Immobilisers are paired perfectly to give you car ultimate security. To view types of Thatcham-approved tracking systems, click here.

To minimise the risk of false alarms, it is essential to have the Ghost immobiliser installed by a professional and experienced installer who follows the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines. Additionally, it’s important to ensure that the vehicle’s electrical system is in good condition and that any faults or issues are addressed promptly to prevent false alarms.
