Just a thought but is the RFID blocking material in my jacket capable of suppressing this type of problem?
I had a (64-plate, FL) CLS before my S3, which had Keyless Go......can't comment on the range of the key for unlocking, but the push button start simply would not operate without the key being within the confines of the car - almost eerie, that it was so accurate, as leaning in to start car, for example, with keys in back pocket and outside the car would not work!
I stick my keys in a metal box, however if they want the car and willing to break in to get the keys, the box is in easy view and has car keys label on it!
Its been said on here before but every Audi (all cars with remote keys) is Keyless Entry, none of us put a key in the door, turn it to unlock/lock. Only difference with advanced key other than push button start/stop is not having to physically press a button on the key - the normal remote key is still "Keyless" with regards the opening/closing of the doors.
This conclusion is too long..The conclusion really is, if you have a key your car might be stolen, if you've keyless start your car might be stolen. Just get GAP insurance..
I was talking to my mate about this and he's a master tech - Now I don't have the keyless entry system, but he said on the Audi the key has to be in the car for it to start - He was working on something the other day and had the key in his back pocket and lent in the car to start it and it wouldn't until he put it on the seat with the door open.
The range extender might get it to unlock if someone is trying the door whilst someone else presses the range extender near the house but he couldn't see how it would start - I know this article isn't an Audi
Can anyone confirm this - I have had a courtesy car before and I remember it saying key not in vehicle which I'd put on my bench in the garage
Exactly. Very simple to stop. RFID wallet and do something with the OBD to stop them cloning key//cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5a1e4e31b0890/20161212_114106.mp4The whole point of this attack is that it's a relay signal. One box reads the signal from the key by being poked through the letterbox or whatever, and the other box can be wherever you want to make the car think the key is.
Ive just picked my RS3 up today and inside the owners manual was a bit of paper from Audi explaining how to deactivating the convenience key.
It says to put the car in Park, get out and close the door, lock the car with the key and then press the button on the door handle without putting your hand inside the handle within 5 seconds of locking it.
You shouldn’t be able to unlock the car after 10 seconds without physically pressing the key and once this is done the whole thing resets and you have to do the process again to once again deactivate it.
Quite useful for parking overnight or somewhere for a long time I guess.
