Difference between PT and PT4 Key | Ask the Experts


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?



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.
