incredibill - It seems there are lots of undocumented hacks for cars. I read the other day that a theft ring is able to spoof the door open remotes for certain cars.
My son was able to re-program the key fobs for our two trucks (Same parent co, differnt brands, same general vehicle). He did something like turn the on and off key about 8 times, then set the fobs
On both our trucks, there is a way of hitting the setup button while turning the vehicle on so that you get a complete set of diagnostics thorugh the 2 line on board computer display.
With cars getting smarter the wiseguys will figure that a bit of code tweaking will be better than a .22 for those nasty jobs.
oh yeah, don't forget, some problems are solved by a reboot. Pull the battery cable, wait 10 min and reconnect.
