    Default Find me my Tracker!

    Hi Guys
    There's a rumour going around work that the company has started fitting trackers to the newer company cars, which would include mine.
    I've had a fair bit of the wiring open already fitting Subs and stuff but havenít seen any non standard looking wiring or equipment (that I haven't added personally)

    Anyone know where to look for a concealed tracker? its a 57 (2007) plate Vectra C.

    the antena maybe in the boot seal so try and trace the wires back ....or it could be up behind the dash ...

    I believe they have to inform you that they are fitted by law...

    If you know anyone in a union - check with them or ACAS.

    They have a get out there, our contracts state that the company "Vehicles" "may" have trackers fitted, but untill now that was assumed to be only the vans which carry expensive equipment!

    It had crossed my mind, but really I just wanted to know if I have one on my motor.

    Besides, car fuses blow all the time if you know what I mean!

    I had one in a company vehicle 5 or 6 years ago, it was fitted directly behind the dash, it only took a few screws to get at it though, i shorted out the permanent live and ign feeds to earth... 3 months later they called my vehicle in for it to be repaired, when i got home that night i done the same again, they had put tamper proof seals around the dash to stop people (me) interfering with the tracker, but they came off quite easy with a bit of heat from gas soldering iron to warm them up and make them more pliable and a pair of tweezers...
    Some trackers are fed from the live side of the ignition switch Via an inline fuse, you may find some additional wiring if you take off the steering column plastics..

    Good luck with finding it though...
