Sorry to hear that. I hope they are able to recover the car and in decent shape.
There was another stolen TSX thread & how the thieves are stealing cars with the chip key security system was discussed.
I've closely looked at the TSX wiring diagram & I have no idea how anyone could hotwire it to steal it.
That leaves 2 options IMO:
1. Inside job where someone (dealer, carwash, etc), copied the key including the RFID of the chip in the key.
Agreed. Unless you had a remote start installed. Some alarm companies actually use the head of a programmed key
in close proximity of the ignition, hidden in the steering column shroud, to enable remote start.
Sorry for your loss. I've had cars stolen, and I feel your pain.
Here's a little insight that TSX owners should know. It is quite simple for someone to unhook the wiring harnesses to the factory horns by reaching up through the bumper. Once this is done, they can open up the car doors and then pop the hood to disconnect the battery to get the lights to stop flashing.
I found out the hard way, as this happened to me when someone decided they wanted my wheels and driver's airbag.
With an aftermarket alarm now installed with back-up battery, and back-up siren, and a few other accessories, this shouldn't happen again. Keyword is "shouldn't" but if a thief really wants it, they're going to get it.
Damn dude sorry to hear that. Hopefully the cops can find your car. Same thing happened to my buddy's RSX TypeS, got stolen right on his driveway! Shit im kinda nervous now cuz I also park my car outside. Where in sauga are you from? Ugh i hate thieves :nervous:

My coworkers 06 tsx was stolen out of his driveway... he said it felt like rape and being molested.. he didn't want the car back but they found it like 40 days later. I think they just fix the joy ride damages.. but he traded it in....
Looking to go with an aftermarket Android capable head unit. I was looking at either of the Alpine models: the iLX-207 or the ILX-W650 AND KTA-450 POWER DUO.
It looks to me like the iLX-207 is powered at the same level as the add-on amplifier, KTA-450.
How many guys have installed a unit like...
Had my amplifier go out and after spending some time trying to get a signal out of the head unit that I could send to an amplifier I decided it would make more sense to install a Carplay stereo using the Metra 99-7809B. A few pieces of advice that may make it easier for you.

I bought my '06 TSX new and it's been one of my favorite cars I've ever owned. At over 160k miles, it's still running great. I've been looking for ways to extend the life of the car by making upgrades here and there and bring some new tech into this old car.
I really wanted CarPlay since it...
title covers most of it. Got a good deal on OEM 04-05 JDM lights (i prefer the clear reflector over the blue in the 06-08 JDM) and also have a spare set of USDM projectors after replacing my old worn out headlights. i plan to swap the USDM 06 projectors into the 04-05 JDM headlights, keeping the...

Over the weekend I noticed a couple of loose, unplugged connectors. One is behind the rear bumper on the drivers side and the other is in the trunk next to the drivers tail light (taped up against the tail light harness...
