So I was looking at the sticker on the driver’s door jamb for correct tire pressure when I noticed this sticker by Spireon. I didn’t have a clue what it was until I googled it. It’s a GPS tracker installed by “buy here pay here lots”. Also it only came with 1 key fob which is almost the same exact story as this guy. Kahu by Spireon Came With My Truck from Fair Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and I'm Not Happy | Out Motorsports
I have no idea if this thing is still attached somewhere or if they took it off before they sold it to Carvana. Has anyone had any experience with these trackers?

Update: popped the lower dash panel on driver’s side and couldn’t find anything. They probably just left the sticker on the door jamb

My dealer charged a couple hundred bucks for a Kahu on my new Pilot. Of course I said I didn’t want it and didn’t pay for that. I got a one year free trial but haven’t used it yet. My dealer said that they take apart the dash when they install a kahu, but I doubt they take apart the whole dashboard for every single car.

Not uncommon for Buy Here Pay Here lots. Around here the installation can also depend on your credit history. They are installed so repossessing the vehicle make it easy to find if the purchaser fails to keep up payments. Some of the lots use a different device that has a small number pad on it. Once a month when you make your payment, they give you a code number to keep the vehicle running for another month. Miss a payment and the vehicle will not start and is easy to find so the lot can pick it up.

Usually it's a tap off on the OBDII wiring .. look at the port from the back end under the dash ...

Oh No! 😯 That means that those dirty reds have discovered our most precious and guarded secret...Maxlife ATF Fluid. The survival of the free world depends on Maxlife. From now on everyone must refer to it as Lifegiving Blood and drain and fills as Transfusions. ;)
