whoa... havent we gone way off topic huh ???

Ok heres a bit of update. Inspite of the 'state of art' security system ( as claimed by the toyota executive ), this 5-day old car, was broken into yesterday night. Hatch door glass very easily shattered to pieces and point of entry secured, thief took the 2-DIN cd player that came with the car ( an opportunity to upgrade i say ). No other damage whatsoever.

So it just proves : there are work-arounds for every security measure present on your car.

Thanks a lot for your inputs. The security on car ( as well as premises ) will be upgraded to a better one now.

Arrey Baba! The security system which comes factory fitted (the one we are discussing here) is something which will prevent the car to be driven away. A break in cannot be prevented with it. You need shock sensors, glass breaking sensors etc.. To prevent that kind of incidents.

Buddy would you rather have your stereo stolen or your new car??
Secondly ...The second part has been answered by Speedzak below. Looks like you are hell bent on spending money for something you already have. There might be a possibility of fixing just an alarm system with a megaphone and motion sensors etc which might be compatible with the OE, I suggest that you go in fo rthat one.

Yup, that would be a much better idea...have add-ons that work in conjunction with your existing system.

This thing works with the safari, TATA gives you a card that contains the chip, the card is the size of a credit card, and you can use the card with any locally made duplicate key.

@anupmathur - try to touch the metal around the key slot with the original key while you turn the ignition with the duplicate key, it might work.

Already done. No success.
Which is why I said I've tried every conceivable position/geometry.
Still, I'm open to more ideas that might have escaped me.

Very interesting! Where exactly do you need to hold/place this card?

The card needs to be touching the bottom side of the steering column, just below the key slot.

Just tried again. Every position I could think of. Nope, it doesn't work.
You could try on any new Maruti vehicle delivered after end-April 2007.
