When I purchased the alarm i told them to hook up the alarm in that way so the car wouldnt start. Them not knowing that i already had a switch i put inside the glove box wired to the starter as my homemade kill switch, instead on them leaving that one active they diconnected it and didnt hook theres up which inturn got my car stolen because i was turning the switch on/off not knowing that it didnt work. Plus when i got it from the recovery impound, i took it straight to them so he could see that right up under the steering column where all the wires are at was not tampered with, he knew right away that it was his fault. I tryed to make a arrangement with him seeing how he has a shop where he sells things like tv'*, sounds, alarms, tint, etc to cover what was stolen and he refused. He knew that i had about a good $2000 worth of ascessories and their seeing how he wired it all up almost and all he offered me was 10% off of everything if i bought it againt piece by piece.

And there was no tail lights broken, only the window and the left side of the column(the key insert was not damaged either)

Hmmm....maybe alarm companies and installers finally got smart and quit grounding the alarms to the tail light circuts.

Just so you know, and I think SSE14U24Me can back me up on this, full coverage insurance doesn't cover after market accessories. For that you need homeowner'* or renter'* insyrance.

When my car got broien into a few years back I found out about this nasty predicament. They would only pay to replace the stock stereo. None of the extra speakers and such I had hooked to it.

Make sure you all look into this when dding the extra toys to your cars....

Yep, that'* how mine is... I had to take out a "rider" worth an additional $1500 of coverage to cover the stereo equipment in my '69 Executive. And it'* worth more than that, but I didn't want to pay for the next level of $5000 coverage.

93, sorry about your bad luck.. that really sucks. But I'm thinking that the shop has little legal responsibility, unless they have a written guarantee that your car cannot be started, etc. following their install. Any electrical system can be defeated by someone who know what they're doing, which is probably what the shop will say. You can spend lots of money and sue them, but you'd probably lose. Sorry. :(

Thats exactly what the shop said but my thing is that there were no electrical connect stripped or cut. Actually where the car alarm was installed , the screws for that would have to be tooken out and they were'nt. Just think of it as being a car without a alarm system , a thief would just break the ignition which is what they did but the only diffrence is is that i paid someone to help prevent my car from being stolen.
