What are the issues with Keyless Entry?

1 minuteread

Your car doesn’t automatically flip the engine and lock itself if the fob goes out of range. This is often to make sure that you are not suddenly stranded within the middle of the motorway if its battery dies. However, this also implies that you’ll drop someone off who has the keyfob in their bag or pocket then move. As soon as you switch the engine off, you will not be ready to start the car again.


There are serious concerns about the protection of keyless entry systems, with several ways in which thieves can breach them. In 2011, researchers from Zurich showed how the radio signals emitted by cars might be boosted, tricking it into thinking the keyfob was nearby. Police have investigated criminals who block the signals from keyless devices, so car doors never lock, and there also are allegations that thieves can intercept the codes that are transmitted between keyfob and car.

In 2014, after a spate of Range Rover thefts, police advised owners to suit a wheel lock as a second line of defense against thieves who were able to overcome keyless security. Land Rover subsequently issued a fix for his or her cars.


Security experts recommend that you simply keep keyless entry keys off from doors and windows, and in a very shielded protection case, as thieves can steal the signal to copy your key wirelessly, from outside of your house.
