So, I was wondering about this the other day - what prevents the relay box attack on a Tesla keyfob?
Well, one thing would be getting into the car and starting it. But how far can you drive without the keyfob (or cell phone)?
Could you get into settings on the car itself to disable the need for the keyfob to drive it?
Once you get in and start the car using a relay box attack, is that enough to basically take the car?
It is for this Mercedes - you will notice that they had to use the relay box again to use the push-to-start but once it was started there was no more need for the relay box. Is that also true for the Tesla cars?
