1. These leads are made using new genuine MINI OBD ports. These ports are not normally available unless you purchase an entire wiring loom.
2. Wires wrapped in the same canvas tape MINI uses on their wiring looms and use Bi-colored wires so it will look identical the original when fitted.
3. To fit simply remove pull off the dash lower panel which is held by clips then unclip your original port and clip the dummy in its place. Then plug the black male connector on the dummy into your genuine port. Now relocate the original to a place of your choosing out of sight to a thief. Finally using the cable ties supplied strap the dummy lead to your cars wiring loom to make it look like the original port.
4. Most of these devices are pre-programmed so that when they plug into a vehicle, the alarm is turned off during the ‘hacking’ process. Once ‘hacked’ these devices usually then program a new key or trick the vehicle into thinking the key is already present. In many instances, this process can take less than 30 seconds before the thief can drive the vehicle away. Another major issue facing the automotive industry as vehicles become more connected and integrated into owners lives is the threat that sensitive personal information stored in the vehicle may also be hacked and stolen using the same process and access through the OBD port.
Protector has been fully independently tested to ensure when fitted, it does not have any negative effect on a vehicle.
Installation takes approximately 15 minutes if your comfortable removing a few trim panels you will be able to install the Dummy OBD Port.
