at least the cover can be replaced for not too much money. since it got stolen once, you might want to consider installing a starter interrupt switch somewhere. im sure you can call that walmart and have them pull the security cam footage for that store receipt.

Glad you got it back in one piece. Hopefully there's enough evidence in there to find who did it and put them behind bars.

Yes the local sheriff department found it and I had to pay $270 in fees. That starter interrupt switch idea sounds great! I don't know why they broke off the cover, I did find the "keys" the thief used to start my Pathfinder. I'll PM you link cadillacdude.

You had to pay $270 in fees for the local law enforcement to do it's job.

Seriously?

It seems to me that's what they are already being paid for.

Back the Blue my ass!

Lol, sorry I meant to say that the $270 was from the towing company and storage for a day. Very expensive! Sheriff services was free.

message replied. that is known as raking the lock. the common way is to slightly put pressure on the rotating cylinder, then you use something to depress the little teeth inside. the pressure being held on the cylinder keeps the pins down, and when all the pins are "locked", it thinks a key is in there and the lock turns.

what gets me is why shatter the damn column cover when the lock was raked? no one ever said a criminal was smart.
