Likely location for a GPS tracking sensor.

Asked by Nov 30, 2013 at 09:39 AM about the 2001 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SLE 4WD SUV

Question type: General

I've an '01 GMC Jimmy SLE. I've got a battery drain issue in that after a few days of sitting there may or may not be enough charge left to start the engine. I've narrowed down the possibilities to the GPS tracker being the most likely culprit. It was installed when I bought the vehicle at the behest of the loan company. (My credit was crap back then.) I've long since paid off the vehicle, by the way, so there's no question of legality. Now I want the thing OUT of my truck but can't find it. I don't even know what it looks like. Any thoughts on where it could be are greatly appreciated.

They can be very very small, smaller than a cell phone. 1/2 the size of a pack of cigarettes. Is there wire from the battery or fuse box you can't identify for certain? If so, follow it. It could be anywhere..but usually inside cabin to protect from elements. Under any seat, behind/up in dash, something like that, they hid it intentionally and are good at it. And it won't be labeled. If all else fails, Radio Shack sells devices that will find it by a beep that gets louder the closer you get to it.

If Radio Shack does not have one (my local store does $125) you can get one at: http://www.brickhousesecurity.com/category/counter+surveillance/gps+detectors.do or here also: http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/gps-tracker-finder.html ($80) these things will also find your cell phone

You sure it isn't the battery? It's odd that it would start doing this now and hasn't been doing it all along.
