Also, Yes.IntrepidLHS said:I think you're right, but they can get in the car with an unprogrammed key, then program it in a matter of seconds with the right tool and then go, if they break in your car with the handheld to program your key, then just give em the ****er.
Ahhh, but Sentry Keys do stop that ...superg said:4 words 4 you slim jim wire snippers....nuff said keep i mind our cars have a glow ring you can pop it off with a popsicle stick and then start it with the same stick,and if you r good enough you can even get in the car with it.
VERY, VERY Wrong! While that is the most COMMON way it is done the fact is that ALL dealers and MOST good locksmiths have a machine that does it all. The ones at the dealers are so cool that the parts guy just key in the VIN and it tells him which blank to use. He inserts it and hits the start button and then collect $50 bucks from you and you leave with your key.dakotaquadsport said:I think you need the actual car to program the keys, just not program a code into the key and your all set.

OR YOU COULD JUST BUY INSURANCE!!!Sport/SoundEdition said:Sure there is a way around it, many ways infact but all of them require you to modd your car in some way or another:
You can dehandle your car, with outh handles and the locks they contain there is only the remote entry button or cord as access beyond having the remote for the popper.
You can switch the locks out with a different LH car but then this requires you to A. change your ignition lock or B. have two keys one you which can get extreamly annoying (my brother has a key to my car and my dad's 01 caravan has the same style key and he always gets them mixed up).
You can another lock set (like there was a ricer set that used the circle keys like the ones used on the high end bike locks) and modify it into the housing but again it can be a pain and may not even work atall.
Saddly tho if there is somebody who wants you car they can and proabably will get it, any person can get a pick up and get the mini jack(like the unit that regular tow trucks use to tow your car by it's two tires) unit that will allow them to pick up two tires and drag car off, so in the end your best bet is to get a high quality alarm unit installed and make sure to document and save all recipts for items put in your car.
Thieves are truely low class people and annoyingly will do anything to get what they want if they want it badly enough.
Not sure what you work on, but you are wrong. Sure you will pay $50 for a cut key, but the vehicle will not run with it until it is programmed in the vehicle on a DCX vehicle with skim.DScruggs said:VERY, VERY Wrong!

Also. If I want to steal your car there is absolutely nothing whatsoever you can do to stop me short of an armed guard or parking it inside a well locked building. Maybe blocking it in well with other cars. Absolutely any front wheel drive car parked outside with access to the front will take me less than 2 minutes to steal. In fact 95% of them would take less than 15 seconds. No matter what you do it won't even slow me down.
Also it takes less than 30 seconds to open any door of any kind on any car with the right tools. I have to do it for lockouts at work at least twice a month. The simplicity is astonishing.
