auto door lock/unlock feture
Doesn't apply to Thai Civics because our door lock system isn't the same; we use a Denso locking system as far as I'm aware and the USDM has a different one.
Baleno also had an immobilizer
but lot of Balenos were and are being stolen
anyone having any idea about thet?
There's a big difference between immobilizers now and then. The current is the 5th generation immobilizer compared to 3rd and 4th gen. The Civic has a 5th gen immobilizer; where the entire ecu is mated to one key code. The older generations of immobilizers, like the 4th gen in the previous TSX/CL-9 could be bypassed using a Hondata standalone ecu, that as far as I'm aware isn't possible on a 5th gen.
theives are pretty well equipped now they by pass the trakkers and by passing immobilizer aint a biggy
Trakker runs of a GSM; so any GSM signal jammer which is easily available if you look can block out trakker which is no big deal.
The immobilizer system isn't like that and no you can't reproduce a master key if you have none. I know this for a fact as I had to have my Civic's ECU and everything reprogrammed for a new key set after I lost my original key (and didn't have a duplicate due to a foul up with the financing bank).
The entire procedure is doable by a device called the Honda Diagnostic Tablet (or HDS).
This involves complete reprogramming of the ECU based on a master unlock key code which comes from Japan. This key is unique to each ECU and the ECU cannot be reprogrammed without it. The key is NOT known to dealers / 3S workshops.
I had my entire lock/key/set changed after losing the key and the entire thing cost me over 45,000 RS in 2008. That included changing of the ignition module, re-pairing the ECU with the new key; door lock, trunk lock etc.
So if you think defeating the immobilizer is easy. Yes sure it is; all you have to do is, work for Honda and have some inside contacts with Honda Japan or Thailand
