Ghost Immobiliser Fitting

At PF Jones, we enjoy installing Ghost Immobilisers, it is, without doubt, the leading vehicle security product on the market.

The Ghost Immobiliser is the world's first aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser that provides security against key-cloning, key theft and hacking. It is widely known as the only non-detectable immobiliser on the UK market and the reason why it is in such high demand with vehicle owners. This next generation vehicle security product holds multiple abilities that are intentionally designed for the protection of your vehicle. One of these abilities is the creation of various different PIN codes that are only known by the owner of the vehicle. These codes are required for the vehicle to start and are an extra security measure against the possibility of theft. With this, the immobiliser guarantees the vehicles inability to drive, so even if the thief succeeds in getting into the vehicle, it cannot start. Resulting in the theft of the vehicle being inaccessible.

 

In order to start the vehicle yourself, you will have to input the selected PIN code through a series of actions. The immobiliser utilises buttons available inside of the vehicle such as; on the steering wheel, on door panels and even on the centre console, so that you can create unique and interchangeable PIN code sequences. This sequence is required before you can drive the vehicle, however there is an overide code incase, you forget the code or one of the buttons becomes inoperative. This extra security measure provides the reassurance you need regarding your vehicle's safety. In the event of an emergency or there is a need to disarm the immobiliser securely, there are a few ways in which this can be achieved. All you are required to do is enter the PIN override code by way of the accelerator pedal, alternatively enter your sequence via buttons inside the vehicle or use the iPhone application.

 

For your convenience, Autowatch has developed a system that allows the immobiliser to be accessible by a secure iPhone application that makes connecting to the vehicle easy and efficient. With this app, you can enter your vehicle and drive away, all without having to enter the designated PIN code. Through connecting your iPhone to your vehicle, this is permitting an authorised connection with a pairing code known only by yourself, one that is unique and unknown to every other Ghost product. Meaning you have the ability to drive away without any obstacles hindering your way. For added security, all communication between the Ghost and your iPhone is encrypted, ensuring no cyber hacks or attacks. To access this process, pair your iPhone to the Ghost immobiliser and leave the app running with Bluetooth enabled. Once this connection is made, you have the ability to drive off securely and with efficiency.

 

As for the installation of the Ghost immobiliser, it requires zero wire cuts so that the internal body of your vehicle is left untouched. The security system itself has a connection to the CAN bus network and operates through the ECU. The Ghost immobiliser can be installed into any type of vehicle and is the ultimate security measure designed to protect your vehicle against any potential theft. Installed in a hidden location, the immobiliser is unrecognisable with no identifiable features. Meaning no thief can locate the device by

appearance alone. Also, every product is installed in a different location, so no one vehicle is the same and recognisable. For security reasons, only Ghost immobiliser fitters and yourself are aware of the location. If you are interested in getting an immobiliser fitted, we have a team of experienced technicians at our Wigan, Manchester and Stoke-on-Trent depots that are available to fit a Ghost immobiliser to any vehicle.

 

As a whole, the Ghost immobiliser is a high-end security system that protects your vehicle and prevents any potential theft, but there are also many other advantages available. Said advantages include;

 

Engine start blocking.

Undetectable using any diagnostic tools or equipment. (Meaning it cannot be cloned)

No radio frequency signals.

Silent operation. (So you cannot locate the device by sound)

Tested for each vehicle.

CAN data network.

Small waterproof device.

Prevents key cloning and ECU swapping.

PIN code change process.

Can use vehicles buttons to enter the PIN code.

Emergency PIN code override.

 

Each advantage works to ensure the security of your vehicle and provide added protection against any type of theft, physical and cyber. As a next-generation security system, the Ghost immobiliser is top of the range in its industry and offers all the latest high-end features. By responding to actions and signals displayed by the vehicle, the Ghost immobiliser works as an extended component of the vehicles internal structure. An added insurance for those looking to ensure the safety of their vehicle.



Ghost Immobiliser by Autowatch is a state of the art vehicle immobilising safety system. Without the correct personalised PIN code, the vehicle's engine cannot start, even with the key. Enter the unique PIN code by pressing a pattern of existing electrical buttons on the vehicle, only the owner of the vehicle will know the code and be able to start the vehicle.

Ghost immobilisers can only be installed by selected approved fitters who are trained by Autowatch to fit this unique system.

The Ghost is a unique, next-generation device that secures your vehicle without the need for cutting wires or adding aftermarket key fobs. The device is connected to the vehicles CAN data network and a personalised PIN code is programmed into the Ghost using buttons on the dash and steering wheel.



Advantages

The Ghost will prevent the starting of the engine unless the unique, user-defined PIN code has been entered first.

Undetectable using diagnostics

A modern thief can use diagnostics to detect circuit cuts on modern vehicles. The Ghost immobiliser has no circuit cuts so it cannot be found using these methods.

No radio frequency signals

Thieves cannot use sophisticated RF scanning, code-grabbing technology to detect what security device your vehicle has when it does not transmit any signals like conventional security systems.

Advantages of using the CAN data network

The use of the CAN data bus has several advantages including low risk during installation, low probability of detection and allows for placement almost anywhere in the vehicle.

Silent operation

Because the unit communicates with the ECU on the data bus to immobilise the vehicle there is no way a thief could listen for the tell-tale clicking of a traditional immobiliser relay.

Stops key cloning and EU swapping

A thief cannot simply add a new key or replace an ECU to bypass the Ghost and start the vehicle. Only a correct PIN code will allow the engine to start.

Tested for each vehicle

Due to the nature of the data bus communication the Ghost has been adapted and tested for every vehicle we list as compatible. If we list your vehicle you can be sure that we have thoroughly tested its operation with the Ghost.

Weatherproof tiny device

The Ghost is sealed and so small that it can be installed and wrapped into the vehicle harness anywhere in the vehicle, making it near impossible for a thief to find.

Emergency PIN code override

If the PIN code is forgotten, the car is sold or a button is broken then there is a secure, unique reset code for each device.

Service/ Valet mode

Service mode allows your vehicle to temporarily start and drive without requiring the PIN code. The Ghost will exit service mode based on speed and time or by simply entering the PIN code.

Simple PIN code change process

At any time you can easily change the PIN code. Only you will know the unique PIN code for your vehicle.

Uses the vehicle’s original buttons to enter the PIN code

The buttons in modern vehicles send data all around the vehicle which allows us to detect many different keys being pressed without extra wiring.

Ghost Immobiliser fitting

Car thieves are becoming increasingly more Hi-Tech

As vehicles become more computerised, criminals have adapted and found new ways to get around the inbuilt security features that manufacturers install. In the two videos below, criminals can be seen using the latest form of vehicle theft, the relay attack.

The thieves use a box that is not much bigger than a tablet, they scan near the front door of the house where the vehicles are parked. This box picks up the car keys remote signal, these tend to change every 30 seconds, unfortunately, these key fobs are constantly broadcasting, the box picks up the signal and relays it to a second device that the person who will drive the vehicle is holding. This then tricks the vehicle into thinking the key is present, and therefore opens the doors and then when commanded to do so from the second box, starts the engine.

Both cars were taken in just over one minute, if either of the cars had had a Ghost immobiliser fitted, neither vehicle would have been able to have been stolen.
