It looks like they disconnected the battery to disconnect the BCM and plug in their own BCM with it's own key fob. The battery was reconnected and the door light came on. They got in, started the car and drove away.

A hidden kill switch could have stopped that.
How did they roll the car and open the doors prior to the BCM swap?

That's a good question to which I have no answer. I'm only guessing on the BCM swap.

How about security screws for the BCM?

What would stop someone from simply unplugging the original BCM and plugging in another BCM to the connectors without removing the original BCM? Harness length perhaps?

Ummm...if they brought a faulty BCM perhaps?

Really if those crooks are at the level, they definitely know what they're doing.

I just purchased faraday cages for my fobs on Amazon... not worried about my neighborhood, but go out to a restaurant, and come back an hour later to no car? No thanks!

And since we are on the subject - what about those credit cards in your wallet?

From 2013, but still valid today:

Those look a little more elegant than my Reynolds aluminum foil pouches I made for our fobs. I agree that my neighborhood isn't an issue either but parking on the street somewhere else certainly warrants some RFID protection. Time to order a couple from Amazon.

Some, not you, but some, find creative ways to do that. I am betting part of those Insurance numbers reflect that. Same with the Hellcat. My Infiniti Sales guy, who is really honest and upfront with me, told me they even have a name for it. Red Sport Regret. It will continue until Infiniti brings this car up to speed with the rest of the world. I loved my 14' Hybrid Sport. My 18 RS...meh.

BLUF: Used your quote of can't wait to get out of your lease as a segway to say that I bet lots of people are committing insurance fraud to get out early. (Not you specific)

Stay dry!
Infiniti Corporate promised me tire insurance with my serpentine problem and when I go to collect. Nope nothing there.

I donít regret the car Iím just over it at this point. Looking to getting rid of it and moving on. I still need to get that recommended mods thread out there. Certain mods definitely made drive ability suffer.

Ok maybe this Cat 4 steaming my way will destroy that car for good lol.
