That technique will only work for older vehicles circa 1980s, and with GM style solenoid. Ford style solenoids, and some imports from the 80s still
wouldn't work. Newer cars are virtually impossible to hotwire in enough time to make a getaway. If your car has a VATS or similar anti-theft
ignition, the ECU will not power the crank position sensor unless the chipped key is in the ignition. These cars are impossible to hotwire. Ok, not
impossible, but maybe 2 people in 50,000 have the equipment to do it.
So if you're going to hotwire a ride in a SHTF scenario think old, and simple. Anything mid 90s and newer will be really hard, and anything around
2001, and newer virtually impossible without special (read expensive)tools/skills.
