I was reading online about thieves 'hacking' the OBD2 port on push button start vehicles and there seems to be little discussion around OBD2 port locks or moving OBD ports. I was wondering if any has attempted to rewire an OBD2 port with a proprietary 16 pin connector and just connecting a dongle when they need to use it?


Swap the CAN lines and make an adapter harness when you need to connect, I have heard of plenty people doing this to avoid thieves as well as manufacturer warranty voids after tuning.
