How Ford Protects You From Car Theft

How Ford Protects You From Car Theft
WESTLAND, Mich. - If you're a car thief, business is about to get really slow. Ford has created and installed various anti-theft technologies into its vehicles that make stealing a car extremely difficult. In fact, the FBI has recently released data that says the number of vehicles stolen is plummeting, thanks to new technology found in vehicles.

So how is Ford protecting you from car theft? One important technology that Ford has installed in your car is the SecuriCode Keyless Entry. SecuriCode Keyless Entry is a great technology that makes things easy and convenient for you and difficult for people with bad intentions. This technology allows you to avoid time spent fumbling and looking for keys, as you can just enter your programmed five-digit code into the driver's side keypad. Only the right code will send a signal to the wiring system in your engine, allowing the vehicle to start.

This is a great safety feature since it cuts the time that you are outside of your car trying to get in. Car thefts can happen in a moment's notice when you're fumbling for your keys, as your focus is not on your surroundings. The SecuriCode lets you quickly enter the code and hop in your vehicle, all the while keeping your attention on what's going on around you.

Now that you know just one of the many ways in which Ford protects you from car theft, it's important to know that there are still precautionary measures you should take. Even the most secure technology won't protect you or your car if you aren't cautious. Here are a few quick tips:

  1. NEVER leave your keys in the ignition. Even if you are just running into the store for a second, it only takes a second to jump in your car and drive off.
  2. Always lock your vehicle. Locking your Ford activates the lock security systems.
  3. Don't leave valuables in plain sight.  If your purse or laptop bag is clearly visible, the thief has more motivation to break into your vehicle.
  4. Trust your gut and use common sense. Always try to stay in well-lit areas and avoid parking behind dumpsters, large vehicles, or anything that could keep people nearby from spotting your car.
