I live it a somewhat rough area right now, but keep my locked car in a locked garage. That said, would really like to see a fuel pump kill-switch installation thread

I'd rather see a kill a car thief thread.

It was brand new with a few thousand miles on it.

If they want it, they'll get it. A fuel cut is actually the best option available IMO.
I've had 9 second cars with fuel pump switches and they do fail..........sigh..........another thing to go wrong.

how about the steering wheel locks............like a few that were posted from amazon, do they not work? more specifically, the baseball bat one. seems hard to cut and slip off.

Take any Nissan control module under the steer column, swap it and now your key works instead of the original. Get a club boys especially if you park outside or in an apartment complex. If anyone wants more details Iíll call my auto theft detective buddy. Not Cool Infiniti!
Aaand Infiniti continues its descent into lazy POS irrelevance. And this is a DIRECT RESULT of the cheap-assed refusal to update their chassis and tech that I have bitched about for a decade now.

If you're buying luxury, you're much better off with the Germans. Heck, you're better off with fucking CADILLAC!

Maybe not now but at one point Surrey was the stolen car capital of North America

One of my first cars was a 1995 Honda Civic Dragon Edition
I had the ECU fuse rewired into my Hazard light button
In order to start the car you had to turn on the hazards to complete the circuit
Of course you loose the use of your hazards but no one is going to turn them on while their stealing a car

Am I one only one who's bothered by the IIHS article stating "Infiniti Q50 4-door" as opposed to the elusive Q50 2-door?

Has anybody installed a shock sensor? How does that compare to a kill switch?

A shock sensor will only activate the security horn for 1 minute if it's connected to the vehicle's security system and the car is bumped. If the perp has a attack relay device, that is bypassed as well as the vehicle immobilizer system. A hidden kill switch that is independent of the security system won't let a perp start your car even if they get past the security system. The perp isn't going to sit in the car and try to figure out why it won't start or why the car died after running for a few seconds. Even if they suspected a kill switch, if it is properly hidden they likely won't take the time to find it.

I'd like to see biometrics introduced into car security systems. A fingerprint reader or facial recognition system that are commonplace now on smartphones and computers would make stealing a car more difficult.

If you have GPS or satellite radio I believe Infiniti can track your car. I believe this service has to be setup after you purchase your car. If I were you guys I would contact infiniti corporate and ask. Itís Infinitiís version of onstar I believe.




On a side note. I canít get rid of this car soon enough. I had a pin prick size hole in the fuel line which was leaking fuel in the engine bay, and a hose line protector is fraying right next to the serpentine belt. Itís getting warranty work done ASAP. Fuel line is fixed though. I couldnít wait on that. Iím going to start a where my car went wrong thread or recommended mods thread I think. At some point something affected drivability because even my wife noticed the difference once it went back to stock.

I believe these numbers to be extremely inflated as the result of the above stated quote. People do not wait.
