asked by on

Can you turn off wjere keyless remote cant be used because somebody stole mine

My car has 251142 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Unfortunately, no, you cannot turn off access but the dealer may be able to reprogram a new one and change the code for you. Until then, you need to secure your car with a steering wheel lock or disconnect the battery and manually lock the car doors with the key.
