My Baby Is Gone!!

Recommended Posts

I'm so pissed off right now!! I get home from work and realize my truck is not where I last parked it. I run in the house hoping to see my extra key gone and maybe my brother has it, or my mom or my dad. To my misfortune, they are here... I filed a police report and now sit here and wonder, where could it be and who's the *ucking slob that has my truck!! That truck was my everything, I just hope I get her back in one piece...:cry:

Yes. It's the one in my profile picture. I agree, I could have seriously murked someone when I first realized my truck was gone. Maybe It's the Honda thieves; maybe they need a truck with balls to pull their stupid little ricer cars. I seriously don't know what I would do If I found out who it was.

Yea, i was thinking about doing that. I'm more worried because I had important information in there containing bank information and my social security number. I don't even know who to contact about this.

just the other day i had a though about this. man i need to make that kill switch.

You seriously should while you have the chance. I'd hate to see another one of our members see their truck gone.

Im surprised mike doesn't have a thread or a page about how to disable your starter.

i am a frequent offender of this, and outside of that fact the guys at work rarely ever showup and leave when i do i feel they don't realise. there is only one guy who knows i give him rides home from work all the time, but we have become good friends over time. I leave mine under the center console ar rest thing, just pick it up an inch and there she is. I did this because when i am running the doctors around in bad weather i have left my keys locked inside before with the truck running.

That's the weird part. There's no evidence of broken glass, or anything. One thing is for sure; I won't retrieve it with wheels on it. :cry: Hate is a pretty big word, and I can honestly say I hate thieves, and I hate the person who only wishes to have what I have and will go as far as stealing shi* to get it. I don't understand... why couldn't he have asked for the wheels, stereo, engine, or whatever he wants. I would have politely said "sure!"... Freakin' douchebags!

That would be nice to know, how a person can keep it fom starting easily :shrug:

Put a lockable battery disconnect switch inline with the battery cables. Myself I would put a hidden toggle switch in the solenoid wire for the starter. You could even go as far as to run a switch to control the power to the vp44 controller and the fuel pump.

i would think running a toggle or a kill switch to the Vp-44 controller would be better because anyone can just cross the solenoid on the starter.

#5 green wire is ecm power wire.A toggle to it and no start. Now about your truck.Man i am sorry to here this. On the news they had a story about people in parking lots with some kind of a computer that reads your key fob.It can unlock your truck.But that only gets them in the cab.I dont know how to get it started from that point.Maybe some one flatbed it ?

There was a guy I remember that didn't smoke but rigged the cigarette lighter as the toggle switch to start the truck. So to protect his truck he would simple pull the cigarette lighter out and and put it in his pocket... Truck disabled! :smart:

Got you posted on Cummins Forum in the Colorado Section.

Stolen Truck in Denver Area

Thanks for posting on there stodg73 as I am not a member of that forum. Really do appreciate it.

Well, it's a good thing I haven't purchased my friends 9mm yet. I probably would have gone out head hunting. I felt so disrespected... It's unexplainable, the feeling. Especially to have something you really care about just taken from you like that.

I don't know why I haven't done this but one of my friends uncle has a camera on each pillar of his range rover. He has it setup somehow to where if the key isnt in the ignition and the door is opened it starts recording.

That would be an awesome thing to do. Can you imagine thieves going "Why isn't this thing starting?" doing every possible thing to start it. Little do they know they need the cigarette lighter to start it. That wuld be awesome!!

Plug in the cigarette lighter, you freakin' Douchebag!

now i have a team of top men (me myself and my brother) designing a kill switch and i came up with a good sneaky solution.the accelerator pedal, because on our second gen's you can lift the pedal up, its as simple as having a push switch that pushes on and then push it again to turn it off, and then afix that to the wall behind the ACC pedal. then when you get into your truck you simply lift the pedal up till it hits the firewall, and then you can start the truck.

Man that sucks, I guess you don't have security system on the truck. If they peel my column the truck will run for about 15 seconds then the fuel pump shuts down if the ECM does not see the signal from the key.For you guys that have a spare key so you can lock your truck with it running. I'm also guessing you don't have power locks with a key fob? I keep my key fob on a different key ring so I can lock and unlock my truck with it running. No you can't lock the truck using the power lock switch but the key fob will lock the truck.Don

It seemed creapy but on a heavy highway haul, I used my 2 piece key chain to lock the doors, leaving the truck idling key in to cool the turbo... locked the doors with the keyless entry. Bro & I got back from our pit stop & hit the road again. I have no idea if the alarm would work under these circumstances...

My igniton switch is so wore out I can pull the key out with it running and lock the doors... :lmao::lmao2: As for car thieft out here in Idaho is rather rare... 1. If you do steal a car you won't make it to the next county with it. (Can't out run Motorola)2. It's not hard to steal a rig out here being that most people leave there keys in the ignition with the windows rolled down and doors unlocked. As for people with car alarms the local kids love picking on these cars because they make noise. After awhile the owner typically gets smart and never uses it again. Or the local cats love to bounce on a warm hood tripping the alarm. :duh: As for me I lock my truck up even at home. Most of the time its parked in the shop and even locked up in there too. Something about living in California for 20 years kind of does it to you. :cookoo:

Mike I'm talking about the "factory alarm" not an after market. With the factory system there is a transmitter built into the gray key cover. If the vehicle is started without the key it will run 15 seconds then shut down the fuel pump. That is why it is very important to have a spare key made up as you need to have two keys to program another key. With out them a new key will cost you just a tad over $200 bucks.Don
