Onus Posted July 24, 2016 Share Posted July 24, 2016 (edited) I personally have not dabbled with RF hacking, so please forgive any ignorance that reveals itself with this post. I recently bought a 2016 honda civic. I live in a city neighborhood and park it on the one way street that I live on. It like most cars, has a key that also allows for remote locking / arming of the alarm, and unlocking, as well as opening the trunk. Anyway, a few weeks into buying the car I started noticing my trunk would be open in the morning. At first I figured I must have accidentally hit the trunk button on the key, and started being much more careful about where I put my keys down. But it kept happening, always over night and on my street. It was not happening when I stayed over my girlfriends for weeks at a time, or anywhere else. Just when I parked it on my street. The other night 15 of my neighbors cars on my street were all broken into, with their glove compartments rifled through. 2 cars were flat out stolen, and not a single alarm had gone off. None of the cars showed evidence of forced entry.. my car was one of them. My car was parked literally right out side my bedroom window and I know I would have heard the alarm.. the interesting thing to me was that after I heard about the break ins, and rushed to check my car, I first tried clicking the lock/engage alarm button on my key.. only to find my car was not responding to it. I found my car unlocked, no evidence of tampering.. the key fob eventually started working again, only after I tried unlocking it first.. it was as if the key fob was out of sync and the rolling pin was off or something.. do you folks think my street was attacked with an SDR attack? Honda told me that my battery might be low.. trust me, its not... I tested the battery, and everything works now.. I am almost certain it wasn't working because it somehow fell out of sync.. Also would love some clever ideas on how to fuck with these petty theifs should they do it again. #karateForDefence Edited July 24, 2016 by Onus Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
