So my van was stolen on Wed mid day infront of my house. Posted it up on Nextdoor and someone spotted it a couple miles away early this morning.
Met the police there and trying to figure out if it's driveable or not.
They removed the ignition core completely and I'm not completely sure if I can start it with out it. I kinda tried to start it when I got to the van but didn't seem like whatever was left of the core wanted to turn. The thieves abandoned it last night and not sure if they completely removed the core so that it was unstartable or not. Here's pic:
Anyone know if this can be started with the right tools? Only tried by hand and couldn't generate much force.
Luckily there is no body damage. They stole myt led light bar, winch, rear light bar, stereo, subwoofer, goal zero battery bank and bunch of other stuff. No damage to the appliances.
Goal is to try to get it started and move it to my house while I find a decent shop to work on it.
On that note I need some recommendations for the Bay Area for some Shops to
1. fix the ignitiion
2. install winch, light bar etc.
3. and what ever other misc work it's going to need like
