My Garage
To owners of Mustangs. The check above is also how easy it is to steal your car. A thief with a short wire and two alligator clips can provide 12 volts to your coil. Then using a small screw driver he/she can short between your solenoid post and the battery terminal to roll your engine. It will start and run.

He/she can only drive as far as your battery will hold, but even in the dark they can drive 20 miles or so.... In daylight without head lights and other stuff they can drive a long long ways!

My car has a hood lock to eliminate this. And the club is the next best thing. Car alarms are basically useless. No one listens to them anymore.

Fortunately the common thief is just looking for a Honda Civic....
