Automotive Theft has been a persistent problem around the world. Design and manufacture of anti-theft systems have become more and more intricate due to the rise in complexity of theft in the system. Most of the anti-theft systems existing in the market, are the alarm types which audibly prevent some thieves away but do not prevent one’s car from being stolen and even are not good enough to meet the growing complexity of theft in the country. This paper presents a simple and an efficient anti-theft system which provides enhanced security by the use of efficient access mechanisms and immobilization systems. This security system can immobilise an automobile and its key auto systems through remote control when it is stolen. It hence deters thieves from committing the theft. It also effectively prevents stealing of key auto systems for reselling by introducing four layers of security features written in the form of firmware and embedded on the Electronic Control Units (ECUs). The particulars of system design and operation are defined in the paper. The experimental outcomes show that this system is feasible and the owner can steadily control his vehicle within a few seconds.
