oh yeah, don't forget, some problems are solved by a reboot. Pull the battery cable, wait 10 min and reconnect.
Unfortunately disconnecting the battery turns my radio into a brick requiring an anti-theft security code to be entered before it works again.
Last time that happened I found the number and instructions on how to do that on the internet and it worked like a charm.
I'm sure the wonderful people that steal car radios found the same information so the anti-theft code is completely worthless now and just annoying.
spoof the door open remotes for certain cars.
The algo in the fob is supposed to synch with the car and allow you a few stray clicks but the car will only accept the next 256 codes and nobody knows where your fob and car are synched unless you snag it wirelessly and have reverse engineered the fob algo which would allow you to crack into any car at any time. Must not be easy or cars would disappear left and right. However, give that fob to a 2 year old to play with for at least half an hour and see if you can get back into the car. Great trick to play on people with annoying children.
When I rented a Chrysler 300 the new fob made me insane. The damn car unlocked itself any time you got close and the electric 'key' in the car only worked when the fob was in the car and there was no keyhole for a real key. I never knew if that car was ever locked and I've been places where some radio signal from a store security system or something jammed my car fob from functioning at all unless I was literally at the car so I can see easily getting stranded when by a simple radio jammer and all the Chrysler owners would just be sitting there with no place to go.
