Myth #9: If you lost your keys, just hotwire the car.
It may have been a snap to illicitly crank an engine back when Nehru jackets were in fashion, but this is not advisable. You could have easily hotwired in the days when the ignition was located in the dash. This is no longer an option.
If you have an assortment of technology in your vehicle, it would be dangerously easy to damage the entire system by hotwiring. Always make sure you have a set of spare keys, an up-to-date auto club membership, and a mechanic willing to repair your auto-boosting damage for a reasonable price. (Hint: Buckhead Imports)
