Nowadays, the advanced technology is helping thieves. Criminals can use a device that strengthens your remote control keys signal and then unlock your vehicle, even if your keys are inside the house. Authorities say put your keys inside aluminum foil, the microwave, or the freezer because it blocks signals to and from the remote.
