The Project Zomboid hotwire cars mechanic can be extremely useful for surviving the hordes of undead. In Project Zomboid everything is out to get you, and if you manage to survive the first night, you may want access to a vehicle for extra storage and a means of travel. Not all vehicles are so easy to get going though, and car keys aren't as numerous as you would want, so you will need to learn how to hotwire cars. So, for all the information on the Project Zomboid hotwire cars mechanics, including the easiest way to do it, read on.

Project Zomboid Hotwire Car: How To Hotwire A Vehicle

Project Zomboid Hotwire Cars

Firstly, to hotwire a car you need to a find a vehicle, which is the easiest step in the process, as they can be found in carparks, drive-ways, and parked out on the streets - just watch for zombies when approaching one. You will also need a way to access the inside of the vehicle. Some can be found unlocked, some will require the key (in which case you probably won't need to hotwire), and you can also smash or remove windows by accessing the mechanics menu outside the vehicle. 

Once you have access to the inside of a vehicle, you can attempt the Project Zomboid hotwire cars mechanic, however, you will need at least one point in the electrical skill, and two in the mechanics skill. These can be upgraded by finding relevant magazines, or acquiring XP and gaining an upgrade point.

If you meet all these criteria, you can learn how to hotwire a car. Inside, get up the radial menu and select the 'Hotwire Engine' option. You will begin an animation, and should you succeed, you will now have full access to the car. It's also worth noting in multiplayer, anyone can access a hotwired car.

If you fail the hotwiring animation, it will not damage the car or yourself, but it's likely to attract zombies if the car's alarms begin to sound. Sticking around in this case will be certain death, so leave the car and try again later. If everything went correctly though, you will have access to a car and can use it to help you survive the harsh Project Zomboid environments. A car will also help you get to all the Project Zomboid VHS stores and tapes.

That's our rundown of the Project Zomboid hotwire cars mechanic, and you should now be able to hotwire a car with ease.
