late and too many beers but I dont get that.

Basically insurance company requested that both keys where sent to them to prove they where for the car. They send these of to be read and they questioned him when was the last time he opened and locked the car etc before he went away . He said day before at around 6pm which he did but he forgot at 8pm son went in to get something out but he did lock the car as the keys confirmed it. All this was on the keys never thought of them storing this. But then as they store service history , what else to they store

Yes, the good old 'swarf key'

Even Snap-On used to sell break-in kits and window slips.

If you can tolerate and alarm going off for about 30s then you can program a key from the OBD2 I believe also?

Or if the internal alarm isn't enabled then I guess its even simpler to take a car?

That's a standard lock picking technique used by lock smiths. I've seen a modified technique that works as fast as having the key.

I wasn't aware it worked on car locks. There are lock designs can can make it very difficult to do that's it's not worth the effort
