Car Thieves Disabling OnStar, Replacing Vehicle Computers
(February 11, 2020)

Surveillance video has shown how fast the thieves operate – pop the lock, open the hood, change the computer, and disable OnStar tracking.

This crap all started when they took the dimmer switch off the floorboard.  Been downhill ever since.
