I guess that might cause a thief an extra 5 seconds of effort with a screwdriver if the owner has a V6 Charger. For the rest of us, he'd only need to fold down one of halves of the rear seat.Well if I am not mistaken, there is a way but it won't be fun... It will involve taking off the dash board and unhooking either the wires or the wire depending on the mechanism. The OP is prolly trying to stop a thief from breaking in the car and getting into the trunk to steal a system or whatever, I disabled it in my Honda when I was in high school for that reason.
has any Charger been stolen by someone without a key yet?I suppose if the thief forces the ignition on with a screwdriver or some other tool its probably too late anyway. If he cant get the trunk open right there he will drive the car away and force the trunk open later.
You know thats a good point. I forgot about that sentry key thing. I have to get my brain up to date with all these fancy electronics.has any Charger been stolen by someone without a key yet?
My old 96 neon had this feature of a valet key. Its kind of interesting that they dont today.Before my Charger, I had a Jetta and the VW's came with two master keys/fobs and a valet key (laser cut like the Benz keys). You could use the master key to lock the glove compartment, lock the gas cover and trunk releases as well as the folding seats but the valet key wouldn't unlock them. The reason for this was so that if you valet your car, they couldn't do anything but open the doors and start the cars (e.g. they couldn't steal stuff out of your glove compartment or trunk). I wish that the Charger had the same feature.
My 95 Intrepid had the valet key. It would only unlock the door and start the car. Would not open the trunk or glove box. I used it when I took the car in for service.My old 96 neon had this feature of a valet key. Its kind of interesting that they dont today.
