Technically you still can, just pull the ECU fuse or fuel pump fuse, if you are so inclined.

I saw the news story too on Thailand being the main destination of UK supercars at the moment as they drive on the left so our cars are perfect targets. The cars are broken down/stripped to make them easier to import then reassembled once in Thailand and put in showrooms around the country for the elite to buy.

Ding i'd hazard a guess you have been targeted away from home to trap your wireless signal from the key fob when you've gone to and from your car and they've then followed you home.

It's a gorgeous looking car and sorry to hear about it, when my 3 day old R1 was stolen it was bad enough so losing something this expensive/special destroys the dream.

I'd be prepared to bet they were using a cheap key range booster & transmitter which is why the 2nd guy was stood on your doorstep as already mentioned.

Just seen this mate - what a bunch of fckers
Hope the insurance payout is an easy pai free process for you.

When you talk about keyless, is this where you don't actually need to press anything on the fob?

I've just bought a new Vitara and Navara, both have buttons on the door handle which you press to open or lock the car, as long as you have the key fob in your pocket.

That's been on the Navara and Pathfinder (which is what I have) since 2005 when they came out. I am not a fan of it at all.

Wouldn't the ecu notice it was missing after you'd replace it ,as well ?

Cars, too complicated nowadays !

Goodness knows whether they'd rough you up for fuse

The getaway driver failed...

He should have centered his car to the 911, so the perps' quarry couldn't reverse back out and escape.

Perhaps not on the Navara then but had the push button door handle locks on my 2005 Pathfinder and on my 2012 Pathfinder. Neither were/are push button start but both were/are keyless start.

Handy feature for tipping out a load of gravel



'Bout time Nissan recalled these piles of junk before one causes an accident (currently only buying back cars post failure, and only after a assessment for any misuse/neglect).


Anyhoo Nissan's bonkers system that allows you to turn the ignition switch to start but without the key still has the same vulnerability as any other vehicle with keyless start.

Pretty certain it shares the same telemetry gubbins as the keycard Renaults that have keyless start.

Unbelievable. This shoddy approach from the manufacturers and a police force who refuse to investigate car crime means that organised crime is having a field day

On the contrary, Plod recovered a customer's car within days after it was stolen.

New BMWs like many modern "connected/internet enabled" cars come standard with tracking capability. This meant the car was tracked and found.

Doesn't mitigate the stupidity of these keyless entry/start systems, same as with coding new keys via OBD. And the equipment required to retransmit key signals is cheap as chips so this goes beyond organised crime to cover anyone with ill-intent.

Unfortunately thieves are wise to OEM tracking too; They disconnected the aerial connections on the Shark-fin aerial in aim to disable it, luckily the car still managed to get tracked.

That said it was only a 320d, so was probably nicked to be used as a mule or getaway ride, rather than steal to order/parts strip etc.
