    Car been nicked and alarms

    Sorry to Chris coupe for what happend.

    I noticed a few attempts to mention this in his thread so I thought I would start a new one.

    I thought that the vauxhall security was not breachable without the keys, I am sure I read somewhere that the chip in the key immobilizes by messing with the ECU when it is not present therefore making the car non driveable. You know if you swap your ECU your car will not go until the security is programed into it to work with the chip in the key.

    Maybe this is only on the top of range ie GSI, Turbo Coupe not sure about that though.

    Does anybody here know any better??

    sorry I dont know any better but I can tell you its incredably easy to get into an astra G, starting it though is a different matter.


    The worring thing about Chris's though is that they wanted the car for the wheels...this is kids not pro's!!!

    The public domain is not the place to discuss car security. IF you have any queries I suggest you speak to your local dealer or PM MatG. Any car is stealable to the right person, with the right tools, no matter what security you have.

    PLEASE DO NOT DISCUSS THIS IN THE OPEN FORUM. YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO COULD BE WATCHING THIS SITE !
