VSR repairs completely remove the risk of a vehicle being accessed or stolen using compromised data, by restoring a vehicle's original security features to their 'as new' settings.
Developed by Car Key Network to better protect used vehicles, VSR services revoke access (data) held by previous parties in control such as; previous owners, rental customers or criminals (in the event of a key being lost or a vehicle being stolen and recovered).
Each VSR performed is formally certificated, confirming that a vehicle has been re-secured and that the appropriate working standards have been met.
Using VSR services, vehicle owners have the ability control the security status of their vehicles and better demonstrate a vehicle's security status and history to other parties (ie: insurers or potential buyers).Register Now Download Product PDF
Remove the risk of a used vehicle being accessed or stolen using compromised data.1
Security clearance provided by OEMs means a future proof solutions for the latest vehicle models and EVs.
Most Security Renewals can be performed by repair only and therefore do not require replacement keys or other parts.
Backed by the Vehicle Security Renewal Framework, proof that a vehicle's secure status and the number of Active Keys a vehicle holds on completion is provided by formal certificate.
1 Total Protection - refers to the use of previously compromised data and does protect against future instances of data being compromised.
To provide the greatest protection against vehicle crime by compromised data, vehicle owners should consider having Digital Renewals and Mechanical Renewals performed together.
D-VSD is the collective term for any and all digital information relating to the security of a vehicle.
When compromised, D-VSD can be used to gain entry to a locked vehicle (by means of remote or keyless unlocking) and start vehicles with electronic ignitions (also referred to as “push to start” vehicles) by disabling the relevant alarm and immobiliser systems.
D-VSD can be obtained or compromised via the following methods:
Digital Security Renewals can performed at any point during a vehicle’s lifetime, allowing vehicle owners to retake sole ownership of a vehicle’s digital security data, by disabling all D-VSD not in the hands of the owner or registered keeper - providing total protection against a locked vehicle being accessed or stolen using compromised D-VSD.1
In the majority of cases Digital Security Renewals take less than 30 minutes to complete and can be carried out either in a dedicated workshop environment or where suitable, at a vehicle owner’s place of work or home address.
M-VSD is the collective term for mechanical information relating to the security of a vehicle.
When compromised, M-VSD can be used gain entry to a locked vehicle by mechanical means (manually unlocking the car with the key blade).
M-VSD can be obtained or compromised via the following methods:
Mechanical Security Renewals can be performed at any point during a vehicle’s lifetime, allowing vehicle owners to retake sole ownership of a vehicle’s mechanical security data, by disabling all M-VSD not in the hands of the owner - completely removing the risk of a locked vehicle being accessed using compromised M-VSD.
In the majority of cases Mechanical Security Renewals take less than a single day to complete and can be carried out either in a dedicated workshop environment or where suitable, at a vehicle owner’s place of work or home address.
As sensitive information with the potential to bypass a vehicle’s security features, vehicle owners should treat their vehicle security data as confidential information, just as they do with personal and payment related data.
Typically, compromised D-VSD is considered a greater security risk than M-VSD, as compromised D-VSD can be used to both gain entry to and start a locked vehicle, whereas; compromised M-VSD can only be used to gain entry to a locked vehicle. 2
To provide the greatest level of protection vehicle owners should consider having Digital Renewals and Mechanical Renewals performed together.
Occasions in which vehicle owners should consider having a Security Renewal performed on their vehicles include:
Certificates of Works can then be presented to insurers, prospective vehicle buyers or any other relevant parties as proof of a vehicle’s security status or, to give greater clarification and certainty over the security history of a vehicle.
2 Compromised M-VSD - refers to the use of compromised M-VSD being using to gain access to a vehicle produced after 1st January 2000, which have factory fitted electronic immobiliser systems. Some vehicles produced before this date do not have factory fitted electronic immobiliser systems and can therefore be accessed and started (stolen) using compromised M-VSD only.
