If you have to push a button on your car key to access your car, you don't have keyless entry.
Keyless car theft, also known as 'relay theft', occurs when a device is used to fool the car into thinking the key is close by; this unlocks the car and allowed the ignition to be started.
Thieves only need to be within a few metres of your car key to capture the signal.
Keyless car theft can take just 20 to 30 seconds.
