How do I find out if a tracking device has been put on car?

Post by mal62880 » Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:07 am

I suspect I am being tracked. I can I find out if something has been installed on my car? Would my car have to have been taken to someone to do the installation? If so, what places do this sort of installation? THANKS!

Do you have a reason to be tracked?

A good unit can be placed anywhere. You can start by using your eyes, and looking around for anything out of the ordinary. Under the car, under the seats, in the trunk, etc.

With a remote antenna, the places are endless.

Some covert installs can happen in under 5 seconds, so no - it would not have had to go anywhere.

Then you can start by looking around the car, under the car, in the dash, behind the glove box area, under the seats etc. Also look for any strange wires, as most devices need power - unless they have an extended battery.

Thank you, Eric. That is helpful. Looks like some of these devices are pretty small! Are they usually inside the car, or can they be in wheel well, under hood, etc?

Depending on the type; as small as a pack of smokes, to as large as a lunch box - just depends on battery life, etc.

If it has an external antenna - it can go anywhere, and then just an antenna - from the size of a grain of rice, to a quarter - would need to be visible towards the sky (for good signal), or it could be burried for less than good signal.

Wheel wells are fair game; trunk, bumper, we have even done them INSIDE the tire... So yes, they can be tough.

If your being tracked, there are usually outward signs - people knowing where you are/have been, calling to check in when your somewhere your not supposed to be, seeing someone you would not normally see there...

why don't you just go to the police ?

If you have a restraining order set up against your ex - then one would think your suspicions would be justified?!

What would you do if you where being tracked?

The police do not have the detection equipment to locate a tracker or listening device. Here in NY they send people to us to do the service. you may call me and I'll try to help you.

Here is the real answer. I am familiar with all devices. The quickest installs are the easiest to find. Just go to a secure mechanic and have you car put on a lift. Have him look for any little extra wires he doesn't understand or any little boxes. Tell him what you are looking for. Then start at the battery area, all under the hood and then inside including the trunk. You cannot hide the wires and the unit very well. They are all easy to detect when you have the time go really go over the car with a mechanic, or better yet, an automotive elec shop (not stereo shop).

If a clown installs it, look udner the car. If a stereo shop installs, then you have your hands full.

These GPS trackers are becoming as popular as radar detectors. Whoever designs a tool to find these things will make big money. If you go to a stereo shop ($65) to find it, then your tracker (local private detective) is paying the guy $250 to play dumb.

These things are a bitch to find, short of having super sophisticated equip.

Maybe Rob will come up with something

Did you have any luck finding a device? My ex has started telling me where I am all the time. I believe he has put something on my car and it scares me, at best (why would someone do that?). I would like to find it and have it removed.

I thought I should be typing an question and just decided I knew the answer. I am in my second marriage and again..... again... cannot trust my husband and have many reasons such as texts, calls, etc... You know what? I don't need to spend any more money.

You don't either... Again, this is just my simple awakening at this moment. I knew in the first 15 years of my marriage and now in my second marriage I know now as well. It's a feeling and a shift in character. It's the knowledge that what you explained that you "never wanted to happen" happens. Ladies and men.... we know, we know it and feel it when it happens.......................

I must keep making the same mistakes in my marriages as I keep having the very same results. I blame myself for this time, as I am repeating my insecurity patterns. I hope this helps one person and if it does.... God Bless You!
