OBD Protectors

Protecting your vehicle from electronic theft

The rise of car theft

Electronic car theft is becoming a threat for all cars, not just the more expensive models. It has been well noted in the press and online that cars are being stolen in under 30 seconds, all without even touching the keys. Most of these thefts are either involved in other criminal activity or the vehicles are being picked to traffic to other countries in mainland Europe.

The modern threat of electronic compromise

Although vehicle security has advanced over the years there has been nothing with new developments in car alarms and tracking devices, nothing has been developed to stop OBD theft. It is quite easy to obtain diagnostic tools that are capable of assisting OBD theft as it is not illegal to buy or own the equipment. The tools are used to connect through the OBD port and mimic signals of a key in order to start the vehicle.

How OBD Protector works

The OBD Protector once installed remains constantly active, even whilst the engine is off and the vehicle is locked. The only time that you will need to deactivate is when diagnostic work is needed to be done on the car. In order to deactivate the Protector you will need to use one of the authorisation cards supplied upon purchase.
