    Default Car stolen from garage

    Mod Edit: Thread moved to correct section.

    Yesterday morning, my cousin's almost new gli got stolen for his own garage. The garage was properly locked and the car had steering lock and tracker installed. The thieves (3 or 4 assumptions) jumped in from garage's gate. They entered the car by breaking the rear window and chopped the steering lock then the gate lock.

    At 6:30 am, the tracker company called saying that ur car is crossing Sagian Pull so they have turned off the car. In shock he checked the garage for his car then called 1 5 and motorway police. After half an hour the tracker company called saying that they have stopped receiving signals from ur car.

    The thing is, my cousin's mother was awake that time but she did not hear a sound. How were the thieves able to bypass the tracker? If tracker is so easily bypassed then whats the use of tracker? One thing to note that he has two more cars (alto and cultus) with alarm systems, did thieves aim for big car or car without alarm system?

    This means that how much so ever you try to protect your car with tracker, steering lock, your car is not safe, even inside your own house.

    The worst part was only the 50% of the car was insured that mean he would get only 8 lacs back.

    I am a bit worried because i also have the new model corolla with tracker and fully insured. I would really like if someone could give me suggestion regarding his big loss, like this type of event ever happened before and was the car recovered. Please if someone can help or give information regarding this type of event please don't hesitate. Is there any chances of his car being recovered and who should he contact?

    Car description:
    Corolla GLI 2010 model, Dark silver colour.

    Thanks.

    Boycott purchase of cars that are so easy to steal. The technology to make them harder to steal exists..just that the manufacturer needs to be pushed to provide it...Remember Indus motors is not doing you a favour by selling you these cars..YOU are doing them a favour by buying their product and keeping them in business.

    is there any chance one can import an immobilizer or any kind of security system from abroad and then get it installed here by some expert (the installation part is kinda tricky in pakistan).

    yes - but for installation you have a couple of choices

    learn to fiddle with electricals of a car
    OR
    find someone who knows what hes doing and remove the no.plate when taking it to have it installed - dont trust anyone

    Thanks.
    sir first of all, my sincerest sympathy at the loss. secondly, we cannot claim anything to be foolproof. since times immemorial, crime and law have been trying to better each other. so what seems fool-proof today may not be so tomorrow. all we can do is take the best measures available and then trust the rest to God. the "what's the use of tracker" etc is relative. after all, the more devices one uses (electrical or mechanical), the better in pecentage are the chances of surviving theft attempts. it's a matter of where one succumbs.

    best of luck with the recovery/remuneration.

    Default Make a GSM based tracker at home for less than Rs. 1000

    right! so we all invest in expensive trackers....i mean...even the cheapest GSM based tracker is for around 15000 (I think)....and still thee thieves can disable it if they know there is a tracker in the car....

    so here is a simple way to make a tracker for your car at home......ist cheap ....and you can track your car easily + also listen to whatever is happening in your car....
    1: Get an old nokia phone...less than 1000 for a cheap one...
    2: Get ufone sim card....
    3: switch the phone on and hide the phone somewhere in your car....(connect it to charger etc. )
    4: enable "ufone utrack" service...remember the service thay have where you can send a txt to any ufone number and if the number replies...you can trace its location....so basically...enable that...
    5: worst case scenario....if you need to trace it....go to your phoen service provider and give them phone details...they can trace it for you...

    if you are in UK .. you can use the website like..
    MobileLocate: 30 Day Free Trial - mobile phone tracking, track mobile, mobile tracking, trace mobile, tracking, minor planet, trace mobile, phone trace, mobile phone trace, mobile phone location, locate mobile, mobile phone locator, track mobile phon
    to locate your phone/car...but in Pakistan...the map thingy isnt available...

    o and now how to listen to whats happening in your car
    1: enable auto reply in the hidden car phone
    2: configure phone to only reply the call from your own phone...
    3: whenever you need to listen...call and listen

    thought should share the good old method of tracking ........ of course its not the solution to posters question....but still!!! ONLY YOU would know where the Phone is hidden..... not unless the thieve uses mobile phoen jammer...your phone/car can be tracked!!

    REFERENCE : noorabdullah's post above!

    another solution can be...........

    get a cheap CD player....
    hide it somewhere in your car....
    put your car CD player volume to FULL........ put a CD in it that has "CHOOR CHOOR CHOOR CHOOR" recorded.............
    have a button that only you know to switch on/off the CD player....
    whenever you park the car ...switch the button on....

    now...whenever the thieve will try to start your car....atleast for good 1-2 minute he will be confused where this noise is coming!!!!!!!!!!!

    its based on the same principle as personal alarm that people keep with them in europe and it only emits loud noise to attract attention...

    and obviusly this follows the KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) principle....solution to most of the problems lie in simple things that noone thinks!!!

    His gli did not have the alarm system, the other two cars did. He thought while installing this, it would mess up whole the wiring. I wish he had installed it.

For example, tracker technology got failed due to some of the people who know how to make it ineffective. Now a days no moral values or Patriotism is left. No loyality to your firm or your oath with that firm to keep its secrets is left. Best examples are Politicians, Generals and Beurocates.Rudeness of a child is called as Confidence, if a child is telling a lie to an elder, it is declared as Smartness etc etc. So we should expect these kind of crimes even more in future. Its becoming a spoiled nation.
    Perfect words depicting the current situation prevailing everywhere around us.....
