Passive Anti-Theft Systems (PATS) Passive Anti-Theft Systems (PATS) are built into the vehicle, and they activate automatically as soon as the engine is turned off. These systems work by disabling the engine and preventing it from starting without the use of the right key.
Active Anti-Theft Systems (AATS) Active Anti-Theft Systems (AATS) require manual activation by the driver, and they work by sounding an alarm or flashing lights if someone tries to break into the vehicle or steal it.
Steering Wheel Locks Steering wheel locks are physical locks that clamp onto the steering wheel to prevent the wheel from being turned, thereby making it difficult for a thief to drive the vehicle.
Ignition Kill Switches Ignition kill switches are designed to disable the vehicle's ignition, making it difficult for a thief to start the engine.
Smart Key Systems Smart key systems use a key fob or a smartphone app to unlock the vehicle, start the engine, and control other functions, such as the windows and sunroof.
In conclusion, vehicle anti-theft systems play a crucial role in deterring car theft and it's important to have a good understanding of these systems. Whether you're looking to install a new system or repair an existing one, we are well-equipped to handle the task.
