What is a Ghost Immobiliser?
The Ghost Immobiliser is widely used by vehicle owners, as it is the original aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser. It works by connecting to your vehicle’s CAN Data Network, each time you enter the vehicle, you must enter a personal PIN Code. This is programmed into the system using any of the buttons on your dashboard or steering wheel on installation.
This is effective against the increasingly common keyless car theft, as the thief will not know the sequence that needs to be entered, therefore the car is effectively useless to them, and the police or yourself are more likely to catch the carjackers in the act.
What do they cost?
Ghost Immobilisers are installed by companies such as Car theft Solutions for as little as £450. I’m sure you will agree this is a small price to pay for the next generation in vehicle protection. They are a long term investment and most companies will swap them between vehicles as you buy and sell them.
Are They Security Approved?
As a responsible vehicle owner, you can rest assured that the Autowatch Ghost is also approved by third party industry experts in police and security. TASSA test vehicle security products as well as the companies that install them. TASSA installation companies who install the Ghost Immobiliser must pass a process of checks (including CRB checks and identity checks) on engineers who install.
IT is also likely to have an impact on lowering your insurance premiums in some cases. If you have a very desirable vehicle with high insurance, taking steps to protect your vehicle from theft such as installing an immobiliser can help bring the costs down as you are seen as a more responsible owner.
