Was driving when i felt something under my feet and found this:
View attachment 53964
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?
What a terrible installation job...

I'd personally go back to the dealer and politely ask them to remove it. There's very little chance a thief wouldn't immediately look for, find & remove that. OnStar has a better chance of helping you, as low as that is. Really seems like the only person that is benefiting is the dealership, who probably maintains some kind of administrative rights to monitor/track your car.

What dealership did you buy from ?

The dealer didn鈥檛 install it for theft recovery鈥 they installed it for easy repossession.

The salesman got back to me: This is the GPS system they installed on all of the cars when they came in. It needs to be zip-tied back up under the dash.

Looks like I'll try to remove it. I think the actual GPS device is mounted atop of (what looks like) air vents in the driver footwell.

Lol... I might put it back if it was a lease and you agreed to it. Other than that... nope.
