    Does anyone heard of a car with immobilizer got stolen?
    Does immobilizer really work to prevent car theft?
    Most new cars have one like mine and I'm thinking whether I
    still need to buy extra security lock etc.

    (Immobilizer = Yung naka-embed na electronic chip sa susi
    ng kotse na nagta-transmit coded signal to the engine's
    computer to signal it that it's a valid key & is allowed to start
    the engine. Kaya maski na i-duplicate mo mechanically yung key,
    hindi pa rin magi-start yung engine unless it can transmit the
    expected code.)

    laser cut yung key, sensitive din yan sa tolerance..pero walang imposeeeble dito sa pinas..

    kasi pwede rin ma scan yung freq nyan, tapus eeemulate yung function ng imobilezer.. pero pang prof carnaper lang yun...>>hehe

    ganda kung mag lagay ka antitheft aceso. unless kung insured, para peace of mind..

    If the person hard-wires your ignition, does the immobilizer still work?

    From what I heard, immobilizer equipped ECU's software disables the fuel command (internally in the ECU) to fuel-injector and not the main ignition line.
    Just not sure if an immobilizer will do something more drastic (e.g. disables the ECU for longer time) if it receives multiple invalid codes from invalid keys.

    yung susi ng rav4 ko, nung sinubukan kong gumawa ng spare key, ayaw umubra...

    kahit gaano ka detalyado na, ayaw pa rin sumuot sa keyhole... galing nga!

    mahirap i-carnap ang mga sophisticated na car alarms, pero wala ka na magagawa sa mga car-jacking .. harangan ka lang at tutukan ng baril eh ibibigay mo rin auto mo ..
