My friend parked his JX on his driveway. he had both keys inside. checked his SUV around 1AM and went to bed. 7AM its gone :(

His Connection Subscription expired. he quickly renewed and checked but its still showing vehicle parked at his driveway ( ??? )

Sadly he didn't have lojack installed either...

Upon reporting to the cops, cops said this is the 3rd JX to get stolen in the past two weeks !!!

How is this possible ? don't we need programmed keys ? why the location is not showing ? if they tow with flat bed, wont infiniti connection show the location ?

would the Infiniti Connection still transmit if the battery has been disconnected? Its possible they broke in, disabled the battery, disengaged shift lock and towed the sucker right on out of there.

I wonder what makes them so targetable???

I know how they're breaking into these vehicles. It works for most vehicles out there.
I could go in to how it works but I don't want to give anyone any "ideas"

Just know that if you want to prevent this, if turning off remote key entry is an option, DO IT. If not, look for the fuse that controls this and yank it. Thats if you're really concerned.

thanks I have a camera on my driveway however, I will remove the fuse till this gets shutdown. A few years ago we had a rash of Highlander's similar MO...it turned out to be an inside job..no offense intended but, any idea what dealer if the three originated from the same one...it should be solvable

see page 2-18 Vehicle Settings in manual
I-Key Door Lock

From the settings in the cluster I deactivated the open door button...for now I will use the key.

Good job!

At least the extra seconds it takes to pull out your keys won't be too much of an issue.

With remote access disabled you should be good as they cannot intercept the signal since there is no signal to sense.

Hopefully it works out.

It's called a Code Grabber and they cost a few hundred bucks online.

A code grabber can replicate the door lock, unlock, remote start, local start (without key), back lift door, etc...

If you're worried just lock the car with the lock button inside the car door. No code is used when pressing this button. To unlock the car use the button on the outsideside of the door handle. Your remote fob code is not transmitted as far when the proximity sensor/outside door handle button is used.

Good tip.
I wonder if police agencies are following the sales of those code readers to see how many are actually out there.

Probably not. The code grabbers aren't illegal, police agencies aren't well integrated, etc... Mine only worry about collecting money from the 15 recently installed red-light cameras.
