About Security Steering Lock & Keys
Modern cars have sophisticated and complex security systems designed to project the vehicle from theft. These systems are controlled by an ECU (electronic control unit) which is part of the cars computer system.
Increasingly criminals are able to override the factory fitted electronic security systems, and police and motoring organisations are encouraging motorists to revisit tried and tested security products such as the security steering lock.
There are many different security steering wheel lock and key systems available on the market, although they all function in a similar way. The security mechanism is locked onto the cars steering wheel making it impossible to rotate and therefore steer the vehicle.
Other similar security systems are available for handbrake and gear stick making it difficult to move the vehicle and therefore deterring potential car theft.
Most security steering lock systems come with 2 or 3 keys and a unique code that should allow purchase of additional keys if required.
- Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
- The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
- The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
