Over 90% of after market Immobilisers that I come across take less than 5 minutes to remove. 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.
Normally all I have to do is remove the trim below the drivers 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 simple task to open the case and bridge the immobiliser points. Car started…
The main reason is the installer, the system is only as good as the installation and it takes more time, knowledge and skill to install an immobiliser effectively. If the module can be located in an area where it is difficult to locate and access then it will take longer to bypass. A smaller Immobiliser gives the installer more options as to where he can place the module so it is a good idea to chose one that is not to large and better still one that is not easy to open up!
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 and easy to remove!

Understand that I do not offer free technical support and will not hand out information on how to by-pass security systems as I’m not here to aid in car theft! I also need proof of vehicle ownership before I carry remove a security system.
Note: I only cover Wellington so if you need to use my services then bear this in mind.
