Lock popped

On the 22nd while at the gym I had my car broken into cause I had a backpack on the passenger seat...so my stuff got stolen and the other day I figured out how. The lock on the driver side door was popped open, looked like someone jammed a screwdriver in it and turned the lock. Anyone have this happened to their vehicle? apparently my car didn't come with an alarm system.

bummer ...... lesson learned! never leave anything in view of thieves.

If you have this key..

... you have these features
••Remote Keyless Entry: Locks and unlocks doors, and turns on interior lamps. If the vehicle is equipped with a vehicle-theft security alarm, the remote also arms and disarms that system

•Sentry Key® Engine Immobilizer: Utilizes an engine key that has an embedded transponder with a preprogrammed security code to discourage vehicle theft. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the controller sends a random number to the transponder and the engine is allowed to start. If an incorrect key is

•Vehicle Theft Security Alarm: Deters vandalism and theft, frequently lowering insurance premiums. It protects the vehicle from theft by monitoring door- and liftgate-ajar switches and the ignition circuit for unauthorized entry


but if a thief is determined to break in to your car, not much can be done

All KKs have Sentry Key. Not all have the Security Alarm. Sorry you had this happen to you, I've been a victim of break ins a few times. Not in the KK though... crossing fingers and knocking on wood.

Mine does have the Security Alarm though. Saved my stuff in the KJ I had! Still had to pay almost $200 to have that window fixed though!

When I bought my KK, I bought it used from GO and on my riverside window it says "GO AutoNation Theft System". Does that mean I have a security system too?

Sounds like a dealer installed security system. Most of the time it's just window etching.
