Note to mods : I realize this is borderline and if you feel a need to lock it up I understand.
Quick question : What is the most likely three digit password people would use ?
Quick BackStory - My car door was not closed properly, interior light left on for 8 days in the airport longterm parking lot. Battery dies. My car stereo antitheft system kicks in and I cant use my radio. (Thanks to freindly people at Bradley International Airport for the jump start).
This is a used car, I never knew the password, never knew there was one.
So I go to the Toyota dealer and he say’s they’ll reset my radio for $72. I say screw you it’s my radio, it’s in my car which you have worked on on the past, I didnt steal it. It can’t cost $72 for you to type in a reset password. I go to other Toyota dealer, same deal, apparently extortion is company policy.
So now I need to come up with the three digit password for my car stereo. 0 through 9. I get NINE tries, then it locks up forever.
Anyone have any guesses ?
I will try :
the last three digits on the VIN number (a Google Groups recommendation)
The rest I don’t know.
I’ll wait a day or two for hints from here. Driving without a radio is killing me, though, I have weird conversations with my self.
Anyone have experience in divining three digit numbers ? Anyone from Project Enigma reading this ?
