- Consider purchasing a steering wheel locking device or an onboard diagnostic port (OBD) locking device (prevents thieves from reprogramming the vehicle’s key fob).
- Consider leaving keys in a container that will block the keyless FOB’s signal, such as a Faraday bag
- Never leave your keys inside of your vehicle or unattended.
- Lock your vehicle at all times.
