Lexus and Toyota Insurance require approved immobilisers

Lexus and Toyota Insurance require approved immobilisers

As car thefts continue to increasingly on a daily basis, especially targeting Lexus and Toyota vehicles using the Can Injection method, it’s become imperative to take extra precautions. In response to this growing threat, Lexus Insurance Services and Toyota Insurance Services are increasingly requiring policyholders to install a secondary Thatcham Category 2 Electronic Immobiliser or a Tracking and Aftermarket Security System Association (TASSA) approved immobiliser. This step not only protects your vehicle but also ensures your insurance coverage remains valid. Installation must usually be done within 14 days of the policy start date. Failing to do so will result in the cancellation of insurance coverage.

Why Choose an Autowatch Ghost 2 Immobiliser?

The Autowatch Ghost 2 immobiliser is renowned for its cutting-edge technology. Here’s why it’s a great choice:

  • Undetectable Protection: The Ghost 2 is invisible to thieves using diagnostic tools because it doesn’t use traditional key fobs.
  • No LED Indicators: Without any lights to show its presence, the Ghost 2 remains hidden..
  • Customisable PIN Code - It requires a unique PIN code to start the vehicle, making it nearly impossible for thieves to bypass.
  • Compatibility - It’s compatible with a wide range of Lexus and Toyota models.
  • The Ghost II immobiliser prevents thieves from gaining access to a car using the Canbus injection technique as evidenced by a video hosted on our YouTube channel.

Why Choose a Vodafone Cobra Cat 2 Immobiliser?

The Vodafone Cobra Cat 2 immobiliser is another excellent option that offers robust security features:

  • Thatcham Approved - This immobiliser meets the stringent Thatcham Category 2 standards.
  • Enhanced Security - It provides an additional layer of protection beyond the manufacturer-fitted systems.
  • User-Friendly - Easy to use with a simple transponder key tag.
  • Reliable Performance - Known for its reliability and effectiveness in preventing theft.

Approved Installer: Once you have selected your immobiliser, checkout online through our website or give our Team a call. We will then arrange for one of our authorised Engineers to visit you and carry out the installation. Once fitted, you will be emailed a certificate of installation which you can forward to the insurance company.

Keep the Immobiliser Active: Ensure the immobiliser is always operational and active. For transponder-based systems, always remove the transponder key tag when not in use and keep it stored separately from your car key to prevent theft.

Cover the Costs: Installation costs can vary, typically around £350 to £500. This investment is crucial for maintaining your insurance coverage and protecting your vehicle.
