CodeKase Tear Down

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

I recently received a contest offer from an area car dealership with an “Electronic Codekase”. Electronic. Quickly the contest paperwork was discarded and the “Codekase” investigated. Sceptical, I pulled the tab labelled “Pull Tab to Activate”. Lo and behold, the device lit up to display the code numbers allegedly matching the numbers on the discarded paperwork. After locating something to pry with, the device was cracked open to reveal the working bits of the device.
