About the Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser
The Autowatch Ghost Immobiliser is the original aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser. It has been developed to work by connecting to your vehicle’s CAN Data Network. The benefit of installing one is, each time you enter the vehicle, you must enter a personal PIN Code.
This is effective against keyless car theft, hacking and cloning, as the thief will not know the sequence that needs to be entered, therefore the car is effectively useless to them. It also means that the police or you are more likely to catch the thieves in the act.
What do they cost?
Ghost Immobilisers are installed by companies such as Car theft Solutions for roughly £450.

They are a long-term investment as you have the option to move them between vehicles as you buy and sell them.
