Answer: Manually Lock Doors
To stop parking lot car thieves from using your key fob to steal your car, you need to manually lock the car doors. Here’s why…
Parking lot theft is rampant, especially during the holidays, with just about every busy parking lot easy pickings for an electronically equipped thief. These bastards are now using remote control scanners.
They wait for your door lock signal, capture it and after you walk away, they can open your doors or hatchback with the push of a button driving off with your gifts and other valuables.
The way to avoid being a parking lot victim, especially during the holidays is to NEVER use your remote control to lock your doors.
Simply press your door lock button inside your car manually and close your door. This will keep the thieves from scanning your signal and easily opening your doors. Feel free to use your remote control to unlock your car as long as you don’t leave again.
Car key fobs contain a computer chip that’s programmed with a code that sends a signal to the car’s security system when the driver locks or unlocks the button. No car key fob is the same separated by billions of signal codes.
Car thieves have figured out several ways to intercept these signal codes using a cheap relay box up to 300 feet away. They then transmit them to the the car that signal belongs to.
Unfortunately, car thieves have figured out ways to intercept these electronic signals. Criminals can obtain these codes via a cheap relay box that can capture key fob signals up to 300 feet away and then transmit them to the corresponding car.
The best thing you can do is stay vigilant and lock your doors manually to not becoming a victim of “relay theft.”
