TO ALL How is it possible to steal a Trackhawk when I have both fobs in my possession? HELP1
This is great info 👍I hope this post helps others out there: Relay attacks could still be a popular method of stealing these, using the shielded key pouches or turning off passive entry feature can stop this. Unfortunately they don't need your key at all. They break a window to gain access to your OBD port. Now I'm hearing they gain access to the security gateway module instead. Once they plug into the vehicles network (obd or gateway bypass) with their key programming tool, they delete all your existing keys and program the new key they have on them. Start her up and off they go like they own it.
If you are fortunate enough to locate it after stolen (aftermarket GPS, not Uconnect), most find out they will have to get it towed to a dealership to have new keys programmed because their existing key no longer works.
I've "disabled" my obd port, now I'll have to find a way to secure the connectors to the security gateway module. The biggest theft prevention would be if these rides had interior motion detection like the international market jeep/dodge/chryslers. I'm looking into a way to add interior motion detection to the factory alarm. And don't waste your money buying the factory motion detection sensor for the overhead console, they didn't put the wire harness in usa market vehicles. Otherwise would be plug and play and a few clicks in AlfaOBD.
I was thinking the same thing. After reading speedracer333's post. From my understanding if you interrupt the ignition and fuel from being delivered, then even if the thieves try to start it by flashing a new key, in theory the new key should be useless.Do kill switches work no matter what (keep your trackhawk from being started) as long as they are not found?
**** good to know because I got Sirius Guardian too....got cameras n dogs n locked garage etc tooMine was stolen Saturday night in Atlanta, GA. Was a 2018. They pulled up in a stolen charger and had my car started in 5 minutes. Keys were over 300feet away and through multiple floors of concrete parking decks so don't think it was an amplification/relay attack.\
They busted out a window (rear I think but my car was blocked from video by another vehicle) and started it in just a few minutes. The charger they pulled up in also had a busted out rear window.
Activated Sirius Guardian but they are not getting a location, so presuming they disabled the tracking or parked it in a covered area.
