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.

2. Haul it away/tow it as was mentioned.


Good luck...

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.

That's what insurance is for.....

if i ever see thieves in action i dont know what ill do. i hate people who ruin other peoples lives by stealing or vandalizing other peoples properties.

thats why im holding back on rims or any other exterior mods that will attract low life.

Damn sorry to hear man. The ease of stealing cars with tow trucks is unreal. No one every really questions the validity of them.

Is it just me, or do most of the thefts reported here happen in Canada?

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....
