I notice the models mentioned in the article are 91 + 92 and the main target is minivans

here's the good news for us

Quote:
McGinnis said keys recovered by his unit worked in about a third of the cars his officers tested them on. The keys work only in cars made by DaimlerChrysler, which includes Chryslers, Dodges, Jeeps and discontinued Plymouths. Newer models seem immune.


Woohoo, we own newer models!!

I can remember back in the late 60's when a flier came in the mail addressed to the company credit union. This flier offered a set of master keys for most cars and motorcycles for $10.00. I would have thought that this type of ad should come in an envelope and sent by certified mail. I remember that it came from an outfit in Florida. We also thought it strange that the company would get such a thing because we didn't have a credit union. I guess these keys are nothing new and that the repo guys have had them for years and some are on the market. Just my $0.02.

Do you have RKE? If so, there are products on the market that allow you to "copy" the unlock signal sent by your RKE FOB.

That would explain how they got in, a simple screwdriver MAY be used to start the ignition.

BTW, it doesn't take too much to bypass the SENTRY Key Security system on most newer cars. There are ways around it.

Better yet, DON"T explain it. The less people who know, the less chance of some punk ass stealing MY car (I've had one stolen and needlessly torched). hehe;)

"Chrysler had trailed other manufacturers in making chip keys standard.
"The crooks, following the path of least resistance, have migrated over to the Chrysler products," Wisner said."


Does anybody think this may have an adverse effect on our insurance rates?

The insurance rates on my neon were high because it was prone to thefts. The car had a shock sensor, alarm, and "chip key", and "the club" (which we all know is, to some degree, worthless)

It was one of the first G2 (2nd gen) models so the insurance company based the insurance on the 1st gen. Neons (which is why DCX may have changed the name in '03 to the SX 2.0). As far as I know, the 2nd gen models have far less theft then the 1st gens


*Edit* My friend owned a car, older, slow as shit, insurance company told him, "it's unsafe cuz it's sooooo old" (car was 12-15 years old I think), so his insurance was high. He got a new car, still slow, but it was a 2-door coupe. Insurance told him, "it's a car designed around speed, so your insurance is still high". They'll jack you any way they can

I don't understand why sentry key won't be standard until 2007? It seems if the can put them in some cars today why not all cars and increase the value of the vehicles and lower insurance for owners.

If you put them in all cars, thieves will sooner find a way around it, thus having access to all of Chrysler's cars, not just the low-end ones.

It won't necessarially lower insurance. That is dependant on whether or not the insurance company sees effective results (ie, lower theft rates on cars with sentry key). Which could be another reason why it's not on every car. Compare the theft rate of a 2nd gen. neon w/ Sentry Key to one without. If Sentry key cars are less likely to get stolen, then, Chrysler, and the public, have an effective arguement against insurance companies.
