am I the only one who doesn't think it's a good idea to install an electronic device so close to the fuel filler neck?
Funny you should ask.Just out of curiosity for anyone that has one of these...
1. How many digits are the codes?
2. If, for example (let's assume that it's a 4 digit code) a criminal came up to the car with nothing but time, could they theoretically sit there and type 10,000 different codes in until it works, or does it stop working after say 3 incorrect attempts?
That is wild, thanks for the reply and interesting article. I’d assume that any thief worth their salt would probably just break open the side window in 4 seconds rather than spend that much time typing.Funny you should ask.
The devices just look for the correct string of digits… it doesn’t reset or timeout…
Thus there is actually a string of numbers, while long, not so long that someone couldn’t just spend 15 min punching it in to stumble on the code.
It does, the keypad thing is just for when you either want to leave the keys locked in the car or don’t have them for some reason.on my 15 edge, my dads 19 explorer and my moms 18 edge we can unlock and lock the doors from just touching the handle. does the bronco not have that feature?
