ok yea i know what a two way is now. just take it back to the place that installed for you, and have them setup up the auto arm. they should do it for free.

Sorry to hear this happen to you...just a quick question though. How many layers of security did you have on your car? What brand of security system were you running? Has it deterred any thefts in the past? Also would an ignition kill switch do anything in this case? If so how much would it cost and what brands would you recommend.

Garage is the best way to go. My friend's 200SX got broken into, and had the stereo ripped out. They tried to hot wire it, but if the engine dosn't like to start for him it's not gonna start for them. It wasn't worth more than 800 bucks but now it's worse. I told him to get full coverage w/ theft, and leave the doors unlocked with the key in the ignition, and pray to god they come back.

P.S. the longest I've stayed somewhere where I can't see my car is 5 minutes. I'd hate to end up like my friend. I need a lo-jack and alarm system.

my teg was stolen, I got an ignition off ebay for about $40. Took 20 minutes to replace. If you are going to replace it yourself then know that there are two break-off bolts that hold the ignition in place to the steering column. You are supposed to drill them out and get replacements but instead I used a thin cut wheel and cut a slot in them then just used a flathead to remove them that way i can reuse them hehe you can even remove them with some vicegrips. Other than that, the rest the plug and play.
