Makes you wonder how hard it would be for FCA to add a Pin sequence or app authentication to our cars as it is.
They have the Valet mode….
Perhaps something that would let you turn on or off, but also doesn’t allow can-bus access without “security mode” being disabled.
Obviously the big problem here is how accessible these tech tablets are, so they’d need to figure out a way that makes it undefeatable?
Yea they are onto something with the fix they issued For the charger/challengers on the pin valet mode that almost zeroes out the power, but it’s resettable from a battery pull, as folks have said. Would have to be hardware based and stored to a module to survive that, but alongside the better alarm they’ve installed on those now it’s a decent fix.
The biggest issue with the Trx is the shit alarm and lack of shock and break sensor immobilization. The tablet thing is good you mention that, not sure what can be done there, even from a law enforcement perspective you’d need to make it illegal to posses, and then seize and sellers doing so without locksmith creds.
Prevent them from getting in the car in the first place. The ability to slow Time and create noise foils most crime.
