    I have a customer inquiring about the possibility of installing " Immobilizers " in a few of his vehicles . There are 2014/15 model S and 2015 model X vehicles that he is inquiring about . In a conventional vehicle ( gas or diesel ) the circuits required are power , ground , ignition feed , starter feed , starter as well as lock/unlock and disarm circuits . Does anyone know where one might locate wiring schematics detailed enough to enable the installation of a Vehicle Immobilizer in these Tesla Models ?

    I have the same question, did you find an answer? Also, do you know where I can buy immobilizers for Tesla? (I guess it's not the same immobilizer that uses a regular car)

    Best regards

    As far as I am aware there are no approved immobilizers. Tesla voids the warranty if you add one.

    Insurers here in The Netherlands often require the user of a LoJack, as that is a standalone device that does not modify the car's electrical wiring.
