Over 90% of aftermarket security systems that I come across take less than 5 minutes to remove, making for an easy immobiliser removal and bypass.
I’d love to say that this was due to how skilled I am in the dark art of car electronics but the truth is that it is down to sloppy installation.
Generally, I find that the best-known brands are the easiest to get past. I’ve lost count of how many AVS and Mongoose alarm/immobilisers I’ve removed.
The quality of the installation from most of the car audio shops is shocking
Normally all I have to do is remove the trim below the driver’s side dash and hey-presto, the alarm module is placed behind waiting to be bypassed!
Some are held by a cable tie and others simply fall onto the floor as shown in the photo below! Then it is a simple task to open the case and bridge the immobiliser points. Car started…
Why most Immobilisers not effective?
The main reason is the installer, the system is only as good as the installation. It takes more time, knowledge and skill to install an immobiliser effectively.
If the module is easy to access then it is quick to bypass.
A smaller Immobiliser gives the installer more options as to where he can place it. Therefore, it is a good idea to chose one that is not too large and better still one that is not easy to open up!
Don’t be cheap!
A large percentage of immobilisers are installed at car yards where the main motive to have one installed is profit for the salesman rather than to actually secure the vehicle.
Where the purchase is driven by price most people will choose the cheapest immobiliser and installer. Obviously, this is likely to result in a quick installation, hence why I find most systems so quick to remove.
Awful Vehicle Security
I do not offer free technical support and will not hand out information on how to bypass security systems as I’m not here to aid in car theft! I also need proof of vehicle ownership before I remove a security system.
Note: I only cover Wellington so if you need to use my services then bear this in mind.
