I’m posting for my co-worker, because I love CT and I’ve had great advice from you all before.
She has a 2008 Hyundai Elantra. Great car. The other day she left her lights on, and the battery died. AAA came to jump it, and all was well.
Later that day she did some shopping, and wasn’t able to make it inside with all her purchases. Some things stayed in the trunk, and she figured she’d bring them in later. Well, the next morning she got downstairs and noticed that her hood was popped. She got in the car, and noticed that her GPS was missing from its normal hiding spot. They’d taken some change, her phone charger, and the laundry detergent and paper towels she’d bought the day before out of her trunk. Weird. She filed a police report, whole nine yards.It was a little odd that those two things happened back-to-back, and that her hood was open.
Theoretically it’s possible that the AAA guy left it unlatched, but I’ve honestly never been able to NOT latch a hood when closing it.
When she got in her car this morning (the next day), she noticed the person parked behind her had their hood popped, as well.
So… her question is whether it’s theoretically possible for someone who doesn’t have her keys to access her car from a popped hood. Is there a way of tripping the wiring? Reaching something through?
What are your thoughts?
