that is a long time, 3 minutes is longer than most thieves want to stand there, however it is probably possible to do our cars as well

This reminds me from a long while back when thieves used to steal the Viper and other alarm codes from a distance and then use it to unlock cars. Now they all use rolling codes but the fact they can plug into the obd2 and reprogram a keyfob wow

It's been quite a number of years since I worked at Ford, but when I did, Ford's had a 10 minute "security access" delay even with their own scan tool, before you can do anything related to the anti theft or key programming.

I could swear I've heard more recently it's something like 30+ minutes. But that may be including the coffee break and 2 cigarettes... :P
