    I tire of keeping my key(s) in foil / metal boxes :(

    I think I would like to disable keyless entry. Can this be done via some setting or OBD2 app? i.e. without visiting a dealer.

    Thanks.

    Not sure if you know already but if you lock it with the key and then press the button on the handle to lock it like you would with keyless - it will disable keyless until you next unlock it with the key.

    Does it stop the key fob from transmitting then? After all, it’s what Thieves are scanning for

    get an auto-watch ghost fitted!! stops them being able to clone the key or even physically steal the key and take the car.

    But surely if they wanted your car, they will just hold you at knife point for the code to start it once they realise it has one fitted?

    It takes a certain kind of someone to do this, and unfortunately there isn’t anything you can do to battle someone that is willing to go that far to take your car. Best thing to do is make it a little easier for them to do so...which means keys downstairs and no ghost feature

    Yeah fair point, it'll prevent opportunist thieves. May do a bit of research on the product for peace of mind as it's always a worry.

    Newspaper scaremongering and/or a rare event. Most thieves want the easy option so will leave if the scan simply doesn't work.

    Well I e had my car for a year & a half and noons has pulled a knife on me. Also my mate had it fitted to his AMG. House broken into and tried to knick it. Ghost saved the day & he was in London. His misses came home later that evening found the keys next to the car. Best £399 spent for think it was scallies looking for a joy ride!

    Keyless can be disabled (just the four doors) by VCDS.

    There is also a way to disable it completely but still use the engine start button feature, however you have to hold the fob close to the interior sensor to allow the ignition button to power on.
