The CAN bus is a known commodity -- intercepting the messages is easy. It probably takes no more than 1-day of reverse-engineering to figure out the EDC enable/disable messages.

So what's wrong with these companies? Are you telling me they only know how to make shocks and have no idea how to reverse-engineer computer busses?
I agree. And those are good questions too.
