Autowatch GHOST 2
The Autowatch GHOST 2 system by Autowatch is now Tassa Approved. It is an Anti-Clone vehicle immobiliser system which prevents your vehicle from being stolen or moved unless a “Secret” Pin Code is entered via your standard factory controls. Until then your vehicle will not start or move. Preventing your pride and joy being driven away.
Modern day vehicles such as Mercedes, Audi, BMW and Ford have seen a big spike in thefts over the last few months. Every day it seems in the news or on Social Media that more and more high end vehicles are being stolen with and without the owners’ key. The videos at the bottom show how quickly a Brand new £60,000 BMW and a Mercedes were stolen using devices (As cheap as £80) that were bought online that allowed the hackers to drive away in under 60secs.
The Ghost protects your car from this type of theft and prevents key-cloning, hacking, and even if your key does get stolen from inside your home or pocket they can’t just drive it away. This system has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location or the fact that is actually installed. It uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, PIN code sequence that must first be entered before you can drive your car.

Vehicle Start Blocking
The Ghost System will in most cases prevent the starting of the engine unless the unique, user defined PIN code has been entered first. In some vehicles the system can prevent Gear Change, Stall the Engine on Start and Lock the Gearbox (Vehicle dependent).
Undetectable Using Diagnostics
A modern thief can use diagnostics to detect circuit cuts on modern vehicles. The Ghost 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.
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.
Because the unit communicates with the ECU on the databus to immobilise the vehicle there is no way a thief could listen for the tell-tale clicking of the traditional immobiliser relay.
Stops Key Cloning and ECU 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 we have thoroughly tested its operation with the Ghost.
Emergency PIN Code Override
If the PIN code is forgotten, the car is sold or a button is broken there is a secure, unique reset code for each device.
Service/ Valet Mode
You can simply set your Autowatch Ghost in service mode which means if your are having your vehicle serviced or washed you can simply set it so they do not need to enter the code. However this is mode is restricted which means when the Autowatch Ghost is in service mode the vehicle cannot be driven over 36mph. If the vehicle is driven over 36mph the next time the engine is turned off and back on Autowatch Ghost will prevent the vehicle from starting unless you enter the pin.+
