That is what I was thinking. If the root cause of this is the blind spot in the alarm that allows someone to crack the window and jack in to the port, I would highly suggest in investing in one of these things if you are in the UK and haven't received the updated programming yet.

Alternatively, wire in a single pole, single throw switch to the power wire of the ODBII port. You only use that thing during diagnostics or if you have a p3 gauge. Wire in the switch and shut the power off making it impossible for them to just jack in while in the blind spot. Hell, wire up the switch to the other side of the cabin or right next to the motion sensor.
