While driving and/or parking and/or putting key in ignition to start my vehicle ABS light; stabilization; and speedometer seems as though being hacked...sometimes especially in the summer when temperatures reach 100 degrees + my heater is hacked on and my interior of the vehicle is life threatening hot!!! have to open windows to 100 degrees temperature outside...my interior lights just come on and drain my battery....and my sound system flips open and music plays when im in my house and has shut off my car and while driving my sound system comes on and my radio is remotely controlled---hacked because my stations are switched ie. Tuned to different stations and my cds are scrolled through the tracks without my doing so....and my vehicle was hacked for it to speed up when I wasnt accelorating in a walmart parking lot....that could have injured myself or others..but I hit the brakes and cut my car off in a parking space...my speedometer is always being hacked that when I driving at no matter what speed....its being hacked to read 0 miles and threatens my ability to know my speed and it slows my engine performance...my park brake engages and I have to cut car off and this is highly dangerous while im driving....my steering once jerked but I miraculously wasnt in heavy traffic..I dont know who what or why but when I purchased my vehicle even the dealer boomer did alot of shady things in the service department to my vehicle.........please help...all the vehicles I buy are being hacked and eventually either recalled or crashed or damned near! or put out of order... and every insurance company I get.....my premiums go up without any reason except "its the state insurance commission" where I live changing state rules?
