A simple knife switch disconnect would stop that problem. It doesn't me that the criminal mind can come up with ways to circumvent todays technology as it is advanced and forced upon us in everything we buy these days. There is always someone out there that is trying to make a buck by taking it and more from other people. Technology is actually ruining parts of our society. Then again, you title says it all. Thanks for sharing with us. Roger.

I didn't even get a door key when I bought my F-150 so in the 8 years I've owned it it has never been locked. :smilewink:

I use to lock my truck. Then I got tired of replacing the windows.  Now I leave it unlocked and empty.  Cheaper & less hassle.

They have one of the devices in Texas at a police station and the police einsteins are trying to figure out how it works. What passes for police work these days is pathetic. What you see on these crime shows is pure BS, and fantasy. Memphis, Tennesse has a backlog of 1500 rape kits dating back 5 years that they have not even processed, almost every city in the nation has similar numbers. The only saving grace is criminals seem to be getting lazier and dumber at the same rate. My local sheriff cant even trace a cell phone number of a threatening call.
