Ford notes that its cars also feature a savvy way to keep an unauthorized person from starting the car by way of a sophisticated ignition lock. The ignition requires a person to know the specific code that correlates with the key. In addition, ignition locking turns on automatically when the driver removes the key from the ignition. Car owners can also obtain spare car keys from Ford dealers. Each key can have its own unique code that is programmed by the owner.
According to All State, the vast majority of car thefts happen due to opportunity. A car owner needs to be vigilant when protecting his car from theft.
