How Does a Ghost Immobiliser Work?

The Ghost Immobiliser is a discreet device with no key-fobs or indicators, undetectable to a car thief. It needs to be installed by an approved supplier such as Car Theft Solutions.  The Ghost Immobiliser is also now TASSA verified, reaffirming its reliability. TASSA are a 3rd party group of industry experts from police and security testing backgrounds.

Is Ghost immobiliser any good?

In today’s climate, car thieves are more sophisticated than ever before, so technology has had to evolve to outsmart them. If you own an expensive vehicle, especially a keyless entry, it is only a matter of time before you become car thieves next target. In the long term and for your peace of mind, the Ghost Immobiliser is a small price to pay to prevent thieves from stealing your pride and joy in the first place.

The Ghost Immobiliser uses buttons in your vehicle such as the steering wheel, centre console or door panels to make a unique pin code which needs to be entered before you can drive the car. The engine will not start until the pin code is entered correctly.  It works just as a credit card would, but even more secure as you can use up to 20 characters!

It is designed in a way that is unable to be detected by common thieves’ diagnostics or radio signals. The Ghost Immobiliser communicates with the engine control unit in the vehicle on the CAN data circuit. This stops the thief trying to bypass the system with a new key or replacing the ECU as only the correct pin code allows the vehicle to start.
