Apparently yes, using VCDS. Otherwise, no, only for one cycle - lock the car with the key fob and immediately touch the lock sensor. You’ll need the fob to unlock it, but then that resets it. If you’re worried about really attack, I think the FL cars fobs have a motion sensor that turns off the key wireless after a period of not moving. I just use a Stoplock Pro Elite for now, until I can get my Ghost immobiliser fitted. And I use a faraday pouch at home, and keep the key upstairs overnight.

If someone is using relay attack kit on a 1.0l Ateca..... something has really gone wrong!! ;)

Atecas are well under the radar of any self respecting thief. We know they are good, but less intelligent people focus on Audis, BMWs and Mercs to steal.
