All modern vehicles are equipped with an OBD Diagnostics port. This port is most commonly used by service technicians, mechanics, the RAC and the AA etc to diagnose faults with the vehicle and to reset service interval lights on the dash.
The easily accessed OBD Port is also used by Auto Locksmiths to program new keys to the vehicle.
Thieves and Criminals have become wise to this and are using Hi Tech Auto Locksmith Diagnostic Equipment to gain access to the vans computer systems via the OBD Port and then programming new remote keys to the van and then simply driving the van away.
The best way to protect against this type of theft is to have an OBD Guard installed, this highly secure reinforced steel Guard completely encapsulates the port. Access to the port can only be gained by using the supplied high security key.
