Sorry to be pessimistic but what's to stop someone using a RFID reader to read and clone your card or key fob. RFID is used in building security but due to the easy duplication and vulnerabilities high value or dangerous rooms are still key controlled as they can't be cloned blind (unless the key number is in open sight).

RFID can even be cloned just from walking past you with the correct equipment which is why new contactless cards are vulnerable and thus limited to £30 transactions.


I did mention that , the rfid is only for opening the car still need and ignition key or Hotwire and break the steering lock, I have a quick release wheel so they would also need a quickrealse wheel with the matching couple. The range of passive RFID is also tiny less than and inch.

Yeah, but the chances are so slim. How would you know the car had an RFID lock in the first place?

Anyway, looks really cool, I have the A-Series door locks, so might copy this.

Will this have key less ignition as well then? That might be complicated due to the need for a wheel lock for MOST, but interested to see if it can be made to work.


Hmm I'm not planing on keyless ignition, just quickly looking into it, I'd probably remove it as everyone knows steering locks are pretty useless with enough force you can just sheet them / snap them.

Yeah, I'd remove it too, but it is an MOT fail. It doesn't just need to be there it needs to be impossible to have the engine on with the lock on too. So it gets complicated.

I'm not sure there's much benefit over normal locking though if you still have to get the key out to start the car.

Don't quite a few car use an electronic key where you insert it and the push start button is then activated. My friends BMW didn't have a key but had a fob.

Yeah, I presume they have an electronic steering lock too?  Or some other way of immobilising the steering, not really sure.
