For lack of a better place to put these, here are a few videos I made of a 2021 Audi e-tron quattro loaner car, based on requests from the peanut gallery:

For lack of a better place...



These are cute. And by cute I mean scary. If you've got one of those plus a cluster PIN recovery tool, I think you might have what you need to walk up to any given VAG Immo2/3/4a vehicle, make a quiet nondestructive entry, and start/run/drive it away within two or three minutes. IIRC on Immo3 at least, you can perform an emergency start with a diag session up to the cluster with the Immo PIN entered, no transponder needed, so turning the ignition lock cylinder with the jiggler or decoder is enough to get started down the road.

I'm trying to remember how the anti-theft alarm figures into this. I feel like there was some starter interlock on my old Immo3 B5.5 Passat, and I wonder if pulling the fuse to 46-Central Conv would be enough to defeat that. On my Immo4a Phaeton with keyless entry, I think if you unlock a door with the physical lock cylinder, there's something like a 15 second timer for the car to find a valid transponder in or near the car before the alarm goes off, and I can't think of a way to take out KESSY or its power supply or its alarm horn fast enough.

Jason it is far easier.....

Intercept your remote in your home on key ring or driveway upon getting in/out and rebroadcast it with relay device.

Drive car away on emulation and with rouge key to turn lock cylinder and if push button type...... just drive it away faster!

No one listened to me in 2005, nope.....no they didn't!





NO SUBSTITUTE FOR A WELL PLACED KILL SWITCH!

^^ ^^^^ ^Jack: Interesting video!! An all too familiar situation these days; a highly skilled individual (Kenny Hill) whose existence was defined by a lifetime's happy incarceration - mercifully liberated from his shackles by retirement (I assume)!!

Motto of the story - work has a very restricted purpose-it's not a existential pastime. Retire early, enjoy the freedoms made possible by your past labors and live a much better (read, more fulfilling) life!!
