Autowatch Ghost-II Immobiliser
Next Generation Vehicle protection
The Ghost is a unique, next-generation device that secures your vehicle without the need for cutting wires or adding after-market key fobs. The device is connected to the vehicle’s Can data network, and a personalised PIN code is programmed into the Ghost using buttons on the dash and steering wheel.
Engines start blocking
The Ghost will prevent the starting of the engine unless the unique, user-defined pin code has been entered first.
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.
Advantages of using the 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 data bus to immobilise the vehicle, there is no way a thief could listen for the tell-tale clicking of the traditional immobiliser relay.
The Game Changer
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.
Weatherproof tiny device
The Ghost is sealed and so small it can be installed and wrapped into the vehicle harness anywhere in the vehicle, making it near impossible for a thief to find.
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 mode allows your vehicle to temporarily start and drive without requiring the PIN code. The Ghost will exit service mode based on speed and time or by simply entering the PIN code.
Simple pin code change process
At any time, you can easily change the PIN code. Only you will know the unique PIN code for your vehicle.
Uses the vehicle’s original buttons to enter the pin code
The buttons in modern vehicles send data all around the vehicle, which allows us to detect many different keys being pressed without extra wiring.

Considering these numbers, since 2020, car theft has dropped a little, but stolen cars are still many. Fighting thieves with more effective methods that make life difficult for them is imperative. This can be done using the Autowatch Ghost II immobiliser, a reliable instrument against thieves and, above all, against relay attacks. We have a team of experts in vehicle security that can help you to secure your car
The Ghost II Immobiliser protects your car against theft, which otherwise would have been possible through key theft, key-cloning, hacking or relay attack.
“The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost 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, disarm sequence (like a PIN code) that must first be entered before you can drive your car. Just like your credit card, but you can make your car disarm sequence even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!”
Range Rover Sport protected by the Ghost-II Immobiliser
And now, a true story!
Recently, we advised this customer to install the Ghost II immobiliser on his Range Rover Sport because it is a real protection against thieves. This vehicle is, unfortunately, one of the most stolen cars in the UK.
This device is incredibly effective, as it is small enough to be installed anywhere in the car and does not emit any signals. Fortunately, our customer took our advice, and it paid off! When thieves attempted to steal the car, they could not start it despite their best efforts. They damaged the electrical wires and could not locate the device. The vehicle was eventually sent to recovery, but the cost of installing the device and repairing the car was far less than the cost of buying a new (or even used!) car.
Our customer is understandably happy with the results, and it’s a testament to the effectiveness of the Ghost II immobiliser. It’s a small device that packs a big punch!
