Loose Wiring Under Dash?

1642 Views 29 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  jmcbrew
Was driving when i felt something under my feet and found this:
Motor vehicle Car Automotive tire Trunk Steering part

The wire was just laying there. I assume it just fell loose, not someone was digging around up there (car was parked downtown but locked).

Has this happened to anyone else? I'm not completely sure how the wiring was secured before. Ideas?

Put a zip tie around it and try to secure it back under the dash somewhere.

That鈥檚 odd鈥 kind of doesn鈥檛 look factory. Was something added at the dealership? LoJack, maybe?
there's an inline fuse some slob field-wired to original wiring. Probly going to a GPS module - do you have a loan on it?

Just tuck it back up there, maybe velcro tie it so the mess doesn't come back down again.
Follow those wires and find out!

When you jam it back up there just make sure its not against anything sharp that it can rub against.
Poor job of wiring some aftermarket crap. Probably a GPS tracker or something like that.

I had this put on my Camaro by the dealership. The kicker is that I didn't pay for any extra theft monitoring service. It seems a little unusual and I don't think I remember seeing it when I installed my Owlcam, so it's even more curious.

Hmm, the dealer initially told me they install Lojack on all vehicles but when i purchased the car there was no charge. Perhaps that's what this is? Can it be disconnected?

Yep! Follow the wires and remove them where they are connect to the factory harness
and any module that is part of the aftermarket junk. Make sure to use electrical tape
to cover any exposed wiring. IDK when this crap started, but, banks will request the
the dealer to install a GPS to be able to find a debt deadbeat vehicle.

Looks like they are using the DLC to power whatever it is. It's not factory, that's for sure!
Sleezy that they installed it without telling you. Sleezier that they installed it unsafely.

If you remove it I wonder if the dealer or bank contacts you when they don't get a ping off the missing device.

He mentioned that they did tell him. Not saying dealerships haven鈥檛 told people鈥. but in this case they did.

Reviewing the OP comment, that鈥檚 true. I missed that.

But they didn鈥檛 charge him for it. Or give him a pamphlet or something on how to register it for himself. So not installed for the customer benefit. I wonder if there was any form in the slew of purchasing paperwork where he consented to being tracked by a 3rd party.

I'm not sure why I had one installed as I paid cash for my vehicle. I've already removed my device and am tempted to find a clunker and install it on that vehicle. Good thing I no longer work for the local PD or else I'd be tempted to install it on one of the cruisers.

It seems like OP鈥檚 device was made by a similar company, Spireon. For consumers, it goes by LoJack.

These are designed for used car dealers that are a buy here pay here business. New car loans are
made to the banks, not the dealers. It just shows how bad these new car dealers really are.
They probably were a scab used car dealer at some point and time and still employ the scum bad ideas.

What you do is you find out what towing company the bank uses to repossess cars, find a way to install the device on one of their tow trucks, rig a camera on the vehicle, don't make car payments for a few months, and watch the repo man try to repo himself, repoception.
