Difference between PT and PT4 Key | Ask the Experts

Question:

Is it true that keyless vehicle remotes (prox keys) an be easily copied by unscrupulous individuals even when the key is stored in your house?

 

Answer:

Yes, even if the prox key is stored safely in your house, if it’s within range of the vehicle (traditionally anywhere up to 40ft) with the proper tools a thief can “hijack” the code and effectively steal your car. In order to prevent this, keys should be stored in a RFID blocking box, envelope, sleeve or simply a proper distance away from your vehicle.
