Thank Allah for Assange and Snowden, etc.

Our societies deserve an open debate on these issues presented to the table, here and elsewhere, today and not tomorrow, when we will asking ourselves, why didn't anyone debate it back then?

Alas, the mainstream networks won't budge to promote such debates, so I'm inclined to believe, that due to the lack of people in our society, who are incapable of thinking out of the box for themselves, and depend on Hollywood to get their history lessons, and the big 3 tv stations to understand the world today....





.....we are doomed, DOOMED!

You can easily disable the OnStar system several ways.

1. Remove unit entirely (live with error codes)
2. Remove OnStar and open it up removing the bridge connector from main motherboard to the antenna.
3. Run a cell phone digital killer.
4. Wipe the OnStar computer to factory clean.

Just an FYI even if you are not paying for OnStar it will still records your driving locations. These units can even tell how many people are in your car.

I removed the bridge connector on the unit and found away to reset the OnStar database to factory installed date. which is a dip, toggle on the Motherboard.

Now the OnStar unit doesn't records or work anymore after I modified it.
Its not about paranoia its about owning something and doing what ever you want with it.

I will post detailed instruction on how to modify your OnStar

Thank You

God Bless Spying. I have no problems because I have nothing to hide. I believe the Founding Fathers would understand and approve "SPYING" in times like this! Everyone has an opinion.

And no, this is not a tin foil hat post.

Anyone who can truly critically analyze our society would understand that this is unfortunately the world we live in.

I believe that we are living in the final years of real personal freedom. On Star will look like a minor detail compared to what's coming in the next fifty years. Driverless cars, taxed by mile, speed limited, facial recognition.... watched, taxed, controlled... from cradle to grave. And the problem won't be that all of these things work... the real terror will be when someone decides you are a threat, and suddenly nothing works... for you! .... All in the name of safety. Makes me happy I am in my fifties...

How exactly could Onstar detect how many people are in the car? I have wondered exactly what Onstar does and does not "know" if you don't pay for the service. If it knows half as much here as some here are implying that would seem like a big liability for GM. Let's say someone is in a serious accident, but doesn't pay for Onstar. If Onstar detects this and doesn't send help and the person dies wouldn't that be grounds for a lawsuit?

Sometimes I say "Hi" to the Onstar people I know are probably just listening in:

"HELLO Onstar people! I haven't got on any PANTS!" and then I sing along with the radio.

Not sure why anyone with a performance car would sign up for that...but, I bet that if you made 20 passes at the drag strip on Friday, and then bought the car in to the dealer on Monday for a rod knock, Onstar would be reporting that.

I know in my Mustang that I use to have. There were sensors in the back seat for the seat belt alarm. I think they could tell how many occupants just from that. My dog use to set of the back seat alarm on mine all the time. Took me forever to figure out how to turn them off.

Let em spy though. I really don't have anything to hide and if they want to know how fast I can get home from work. It's okay with me.

I really don't care. I could get in serious trouble for "playing" in what I consider safe situations, but as many have mentioned, I probably do not need to be doing that anyway. I do not see a time that they ever start to use the OBD2 info to give out citations, but I am cool with them using it as a black box to determine things after an event.
