Exclamation ⚠️ Ex Threatened to Disable My Car


Iím new to this forum and found it while searching online.

My issue is my ex threatened to disable my car. I have an 08 Yaris Sedan, automatic. Iíve reported it to the police and ordered a motion sensor camera.

I would like to know exactly how this car can be disabled from starting, what signs to look for that itís been tampered with - that would not be obvious (said ex is a mechanic.)

I also found this site describing ways to prevent a car from starting and would like to know where to locate the fuses, other things mentioned that arenít obvious (battery, spark plugs).

Please be nice. This is a domestic violence situation and I am actively trying to protect myself and my car.

Thank you

In my opinion if your ex mechanic wants to disable your car there’s nothing you can do about it From actually happening.

The thing to do is show the police evidence he means to do it. And if it happens let them handle it. Many such Threats don’t get carried out.

Good luck and tell us what happens!
