Today, I got into my car and realised that my CDs were no longer in my glove box. According to the police, the random key code for my car type has been cracked, and thieves can now let themselves in whenever they want. The manufacturer says they can't do anything about it. FML

The manufacturer is lying. if they're too lazy to change it then they should disable it which they can also do. Is this a Ford product? If for whatever reason I am wrong, you have a major class-action lawsuit on your hands. Talk to the manager of the car dealership and tell them these things. I guarantee you they will play ball. Under absolutely no circumstances should you have to pay even a dime.

So tell the car company to take out the key code or the device the thieves are using to get in and manually use a key to open and close the car door problem solved genius.


Ydi for not having a garage.

It might have been after work or something, it doesn't say in the morning.

Duuh, just ask a locksmith to rewrite the transponder code.. Easy as pie!

Thieves will most likely strike at night.

hide out by your car, wait till the thiefs come, and kick their nuts

That is true, Magnavox. But most likely does not mean always. :P

not where I'm from...their brave sob's...they'll hit day or nite, rain or shine!!!

*Listens to stolen CD's* ...What?

Sue the company

this will be nothing compared to when hackers copy your fingerprint and retinal images.


hah that sucks.

Your car is gay, OP. Get a Mustang :D

I agree with 34 on this sue, sue, and sue. You should at least get a replacement lock if not car, and if anything else gets stolen then compensation for it.



set a hidden camera and sum boobie traps and ull be all good my G


31- hey those are mine!

Lol, eff your life Op.

19 what If the thief is a girl?

damn sucks to be you huh lmao

That sucks. Get a new car or something, I dunno.

#3 do you know how much a car costs? stupid

#8, That's exactly why it would be wise to trade it in now before it gets stolen. Stupid.

But who would want a car that can be easily broken into?

they don't have to know that. 

84 is right

haha y can't they do anything doesn't seem like it'd b that hard to fix

Actually, it's really easy -- All OP would need to do (probably) is use the key fob a few hundred times, unless I misunderstood the story.

cool story bro

hahah I forgot what that was from though....

I prefer cool story Hansel

Ur picture made me laugh xD

That's rather unfortunate. :/

sucks to be you. :)

lmfao how does every theif know the code, park your car in a garage :P

The code is programmed into another key so they can unlock the car whenever they want. Only one person probably has it but they have free access to the car

I never knew cars had codes tbh.. in the uk all u need is a key and no one can break in :D

Some (I think most now) cars have remote un/locking devices, and I think it is those that have been cracked for the OP's type of car. It is possible to get into a car with just that, even in the UK.

you do realize that most cars made after 2000 have a small chip embedded in the key that sends a specific RF signal to the ignition when you start the car, right?

Nobody said anything about starting the car. Not even OP.

Yeah, you may not have remote keys in Yorkshire, but the rest of the country does, as it has done for many years
