Ghost Immobiliser 2

Secures your vehicle from key cloning and prevents thieves from driving it using the keys you originally had. Our latest immobiliser connects to your vehicle’s data network via CAN and the unique PIN code needs to be entered for the engine to start.

Ghost, unlike trackers, doesn’t emit radio frequency signals and cannot be identified by diagnostic tools. It also has no LED indicators or buttons that can give the impression of its presence in your vehicle or van.

Anti-key Cloning

The Ghost immobiliser was created to combat key cloning. This device is connected to your vehicle’s data network CAN and creates a unique pin number by using the factory buttons on your dashboard and steering. This prevents the thief from being able to start your car. If the incorrect PIN is entered, it will stop your engine from running and making it impossible for you to drive away with your pride and Joy.

Ghost immobilisers are new technology that is extremely hard for thieves to beat. Contrary to physical deterrents, such as wheel locks and steering locks that can be cut off or jacked the ghost immobiliser is a discrete electronic device that isn’t recognized by ordinary thieves because it doesn’t emit radio signals and is completely silent.

The next-generation immobiliser protects your car from a variety of threats, including key-hacking, relay attacks and cloned copies. It also stops thieves from stealing keys or replacing your ECU since it will not allow them to start your car without first entering the correct PIN.

Unlike other immobilisers, the ghost immobiliser 2 doesn’t require any additional key fobs or remotes for operation. It can be deactivated by the driver’s smartphone with a simple application. This is a great option when you have to hand your car to valet parking, or maintenance without key fobs.

The Autowatch Ghost-II represents the latest evolution of Ghost’s immobiliser. It is designed to be as simple and convenient to use as is possible, ghost Immobilisers yet remains as secure as ever. This is achieved by linking the Ghost-II with the vehicle’s CAN data network, which means there aren’t any wires that are able to be hidden or easily found. It also has a built-in feature that allows you to disarm your Ghost-II by simply connecting to the vehicle’s Bluetooth which means you can go out and drive without any hassle.

OBD port hacking

OBD port hacking is the newest method employed by professional car thieves to steal vehicles. Thieves have access to your vehicle’s OBD with a laptop, a mobile application, and cables that can be bought online for less than PS50. Once they have access, they can do whatever they want to do, from resetting your vehicle’s fault codes, tuning your vehicle, or taking it away in less than a minute.

It can protect your vehicle from being stolen by requiring a specific PIN number to be entered in conjunction with your key fob before you start the engine or leave. It does this by communicating with the vehicle’s ECU (Engine Control Unit) via the CAN Data circuit and is totally undetectable to any code grabbing or RF scanning technology. It has a Service/Valet Mode that allows your vehicle to start without the PIN code.

You’ll also require a cable with OBD pins that connect to the CAN bus. These cables can be found on Amazon/Ebay for around PS50. You will also need a cable with OBD pins which are connected to the CAN bus. These are available on eBay and Amazon for about PS50. The cable must be connected to the wiring harness of your car, such as the radio wiring harness.

Once the hacker has a connection to your vehicle’s OBD port, they will send diagnostics requests to the system at high baud rates which can cause CAN to crash, and prevent systems within your car from working. This could cause your vehicle’s engine to stall or stop working.

No remotes or keys required

The car immobiliser is a great piece of anti-theft technology that is used by billions modern vehicles all over the world. Using engine ECU software to prevent vehicles from starting if a fake transponder signal is sent to it an aftermarket immobiliser is an excellent method of protecting your vehicle.

It is possible for a criminal, if they know the code that disables an immobiliser, and bypass it. The battery in most key fobs can be removed by prying it open and a burglar can make use of a simple tool to remove the immobiliser’s internal circuit board and replace it with a blank. Then, they will be able to start your car.

The TASSA approved Ghost 2 is an immobiliser that doesn’t require additional keys or remotes. The immobiliser communicates with the engine ECU (Engine Control Unit) via a subtle quiet CAN data circuit that is unnoticeable with diagnostic tools like those used by high-tech thieves. It does not have a traditional keyfob with LED indicators, which means it’s not visible.

You may have to turn off autowatch ghost immobiliser‘s Ghost 2 automatic protection at certain times like during valet parking or a service. The ghost CAN immobiliser comes with a specific mode for this, referred to as ‘Service Mode’ which can be activated with pressing the button on your smartphone. The car can still be operated however, the maximum speed is restricted to 36mph.

Simple change of PIN code

Ghost is a new generation device that can secure your vehicle without cutting wires or putting in aftermarket key fobs. It connects directly to your vehicle’s CAN data network and a personal PIN code is programmed into it by pressing buttons on your steering wheel and the dash. The system prevents engine start and cannot be bypassed as no RF signals are emitted from the device. This makes it undetectable by sophisticated scanning or code grabbing technologies that modern thieves use.

The PIN code sequence can be altered anytime you want to lock out previous drivers. It even comes with an override option in the event of lost sequences. The installer will show you the procedure to accomplish this during installation. The system also comes with the option of a valet mode that can be used to temporarily disable the pin input sequence to allow your garage or mechanic can repair the car without needing to know the pin code. This is a great choice for those who do not wish their pin sequence to be disclosed, but wish to leave their car with valet parking or service.

Contrary to Thatcham products that require additional key-fobs in order to operate, Ghost is a discreet system that uses the buttons inside your vehicle to create an unique and interchangeable PIN code sequence. This sequence is entered using the app for smartphones, meaning no extra LED indications are thrown and your car is safe from the risk of being disabled by hackers or other technology.

Every vehicle is tested

Ghost immobilisers, unlike key fobs which require pressing buttons, is discretely installed under the steering wheel or dash. It is not obvious that it’s there. The device is connected to the vehicle’s CAN data network and an individual PIN code is programmed into it using buttons that are already present on your vehicle. The system won’t permit your vehicle to start until this code is entered. This means that thieves can’t duplicate the keys on your car or gain access to the OBD port to hack into your vehicle.

Ghost can be utilized in all vehicles that use electric vehicles motorhomes, vans, motorhomes and bikes. It’s also incredibly versatile and can be programmed to deactivate in a variety of situations. For instance, it could be programmed to enter Valet mode when the vehicle is transported to a valet parking or servicing company. This allows you to drive within a speed limit of 30 mph and the ghost immobiliser will start to activate itself when the vehicle returns to your possession.

Another excellent feature is that the device can be reset to your personalised PIN code at any point. This is beneficial if you forget the code or the device is inoperable which means it’s like new.

It is also inaccessible to anyone who doesn’t even know what it is. It works by running through existing buttons on your car’s dashboard and steering wheel and utilizes the information they send to determine the buttons that have been pressed. This makes it a secure and solid security system that is not able to be tampered by RF scanning or jamming, or even a door lock pick set.
