Re: Someone tried to steal my GC Saturday night...

How strange. This actually just happened to me today. I went to my jeep and when I touched the handle the horn blew one time. It startled me! When I got in I saw the message "remote start disabled". I started the car and went on my way. I seriously doubt anyone was trying to steal it as I was at home in a secured parking deck and it was lunch time. I don't have any way of knowing if the alarm had been going off so it is possible but where I park is right next to the door so someone would be crazy to try to break in.

Re: Someone tried to steal my GC Saturday night...

Your post made me think. Now I remember when I saw the 'remote start disabled' message in the EVIC my horn honked one time before I got in. I can't stand the horn on lock so I always disable it. I thought it was strange when it honked, but it must have been tied to the remote start disabled message.

Re: Someone tried to steal my GC Saturday night...

On multiple occasions my alarm went off and I coud see that no one was around my car.
NB: I don't have remote start on my WK2

Re: Someone tried to steal my GC Saturday night...

My fiance's daughter bought a brand new '95 JGC just before getting married and moving to NJ. She lived in an appartment and only had street parking. One morning she walked outside and could not find her Jeep. The police located it about 2 weeks later in Newark. It had a damaged wheel, blown tire, and some fender damage. Everything that she had inside it was gone. The only things inside it were candy wrappers, the strong smell of pot, and 'The Club'. Evidently, the crooks didn't want any thieves stealing their ride.
She had it repaired and about 2 weeks later when she going to work . . .you guessed it, gone again. This time they must have hit something during their escape. The front bumper cover was lying along side of the road. It was found again in Newark. She had it repaired again and soon after moved to a more remote part of the state.
I know that my 2011 Limited has better security than hers had, but I still don't like going to NJ.
