If the engine is running the best way to switch it off is by blocking the exhaust pipe.

Then you can try other options like forcing a wire through the window gap, pulling apart the beading etc.

Thats a wonderful feature. What security system are you using and how can this feature be activated?

the internet and its offshoot "TBHP" is for the literate gangs like us to learn how to break into a car

the others by the roadside know to do it already, going by the different tools and methods used by the monkeys on towing trucks in mumbai.

may be we should ask them and post a comprehensive list sorted by model of car and version.

Mine is company fitted with "Nippon"! Car is ZXi! Anybody can do the reprogramming just by reading the manufacturer's instruction booklet! I did it myself!

In my previous car which was a Cielo, the central locking would lock the doors on the first press of the brake pedal after starting the car, found this quite useful as I did not have to manually unlock the car for somebody to get in after starting the car. The central locking system was 'wheels' or something.

Is it allright to shut down the engine like this? Won't the pressure cause problem in the engine?

I was wondering, if we have membership with Crossroads or the other ones, are they capable enough to tackle this problem? Has anyone experienced help from them?

I do not see any chance of the car getting locked accidently unless you lose the remote in the boot. Nippon system will not lock accidently if all the wirings are perfect.

Come on... If they can jam the system, they can drive off as well.

Yes, most do. But what happens if the immobilizer is not activated since the system was jammed.

I have Nippon on my esteem which came factory fitted. But the manual doesnt explain any such feature. Could you please explain how its activated?

Its ok to shut the engine off like this as long as its a one off case. You wouldnt get locked out of your car with the engine running every day would you?

Ajo, there are two ways this "autolock" feature works!
(1) When 'KEY IN' (key in the ignition switch and engine running or in ACC mode)
(2) When 'KEY OUT' ( key is with you but forgot to lock the doors)

Now, in former's case, ppl comes out of the car after starting it when car is idle, the door gets accidently locked by the timer of the system. Trouble?! Programing options helps to avoid such kinda lockings! Nippon have both timer as well as speed sensing system so that you can opt suitable one!

In later's case, suppose the car was locked & parked, and you wanted to take some thing from the car, so you opened the car, kept the keys on the seat to take the items you want and later closed the door forgeting to take the keys out.. 'autolock' function worked immediately and you find the keys inside the car!! This is what I meant as locking of doors accidently! Best thing here is to disable this function! Almost every models have option to disable that function!

@ n_aditya, ugh!! thatz a lengthy story and would be differant from your model also!! Anyways I can scan it and send it you by mail incase if you want it! Lemme know!

cheers!

Nikki, my car will not get locked if any one the doors, boot or bonnet is opened in that 20 sec delay after car has started or ingition mode is activated (when you see all the lights on the instrument on).

I havent programmed it, its always been this way. So I can leave the car idling if I get out after starting.

this reminds about the situation i faced couple of years back....

It was in 2003 i think......it was time to get married,so was in look out for a girl.....We had got one offer & all our family members got ready to go.
After long search we reached the girls place & happily we entered their house, saw the girl & ate some biscuits & coffee. After couple of mins we got ready to leave.....& came near the car & i search my pockets for Keys......SHOCK.......keys are not there..... i peeped inide the car it is there inside.....

Now everybody in my family starts staring at me angrily......and even girls family people were looking at me & i could see couple of them laughing.....it was one embarassing moment.. :(

The girls father told dont worry & sent his son to bring a mechanic....i suddenly remembered what Maruti service manager had told me, if it gets locked i can use a scale & open the door. I asked them for a scale & tried my luck.....after couple of tries it opened & in next couple of seconds everybody inside & moved from the place......

everybody in family still tease me on that issue......

The car was OMNI
