Am reading an intro on how car alarm works: HowStuffWorks "How Car Alarms Work"
But normally most people won't know what kind of alarm their car system has & manufacturers normally won't tell you as they believe less people know less compromise.
Even with modern alarm system, many people still find it easy to defeat the alarm system, so i'm curious:
1.If you damage the alarm computer, everything will be ok? No fail safe setup?
2.If you cut the wires from the power source everything ok? Assuming there's no backup power.
3.What about those built in gear lock, steering lock, ignition breaker? Are they also compromised once you defeated the alarm computer?
4.Do most cars (Proton, Perodua, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Merc, BMW) have sequential code so everytime you lock/unlock the car it switches to the next code instead of using the same code?
5.Some cars doesn't allow you to start the engine even you hotwire it without having the keys in, but seems they can be easily defeated, but how?
6.Some cars has GPS tracking but still able to defeat.
I know discussing about these will probably provide more info on how to defeat car alarm system but at least more people have an idea how & what their car alarm operate, and maybe come up with some addtional protection? Most people when choosing alarms are like choosing between Coke or Pepsi, but which one is healthier?
