Re: Jeeps stolen using notebook hackware

My KL iginition doesn't need a physical key at all. The FOB contains a physical key to open the door in the event the FOB battery dies. A physical key is never needed and cannot be used to start the engine. In a low FOB battery situation, the FOB has to be pressed against the engine start/stop button. There's no place for a physical ignition key. I believe a RF chip reader is located in or very near the start/stop button.

Will check if the steering wheel is electronically locked when I think of it, before taking a drive.


Will add, my ole 'the Club' did not fit over the KL's wide brake pedal arm. Anyway, it is relatively quick and easy to remove a 'the Club' by cutting through a typical plastic steering wheel.

Re: Jeeps stolen using notebook hackware

Yeah the KL is another story altogether... I was more looking at the original video where the their programs a new key fob while sitting in the 2010 JK which doesn't have the keyless ignition. Still can't work out how he bypassed the mechanical steering lock, unless US versions are different to ours.

Possibly a phony troll video post and in reality it's the
person who owns the vehicle climbing in then posting
his own video stream.

Re: Jeeps stolen using notebook hackware

Just checked my steering wheel with the ignition off. Didn't feel like it was locked.

As for the possibility the video was faked, along with several stolen Jeep reports submitted to the Houston PD apparently using the same method? Submitting phony car theft reports to police would be no laughing matter when fraud charges, etc., were filed against the faker.

Ahh. Maybe the mechanical steering lock is an export thing. They have been mandatory here for 40+ years.

Re: Jeeps stolen using notebook hackware

You Aussies get all the goodies, amber rear turn signals, locking steering wheel,... Wonder what else? Do you have rear fog lights?

HID standard on Trailhawk since first release

But we dont get the sim card option uconnect so cant stream music without the phone linked. And we get screwed on prices - 1 x new Trailhawk rim = $1631.....

There is no steering lock in my U.S. AD2 and I know the TH's don't lock because these can be towed behind a motorhome with the ignition off. Assume the other models are the same.

Makes sense, then, since US KLs can be towed, too.

Re: Jeeps stolen using notebook hackware

The Aus TH can be flat towed too, after intiating tow mode with the little button it disengages the steering lock at the same time it does the PTU.

I just think its crazy that they make a steering lock version for the exports and not for the local market! Maybe the car thieves have more political power over there

That's interesting. Would never have guessed the lock release would be tied to the Neutral Mode button.
