Brick + window coverage = no more locked in keys!


This post just for information purposes. Don't actually try this, but if you do, you didn't hear it from me.

lol that always works......my intrepid has a safety feature that if the keys are in the ignition you can't lock the doors.....you should have more than 1 set of keys.

honest advice, call your local police department or AAA and have them open it before you screw something up

My sister bought a used car from a dealer and it only came with one key. Of course she locked the key in the car the day she got it. We tried calling the police but they said they don't help with the key locked in the car problem anymore because they don't want to damage anything. AAA to save the day.

I have unfortunately done this before. The way I did it was to take off your antenna. then go to the drivers side door. Then either have someone else pull on the fop of the door near the edge and pull it away from the car. Will open a slight gap against the "ever popular" Intrepid shrinking door seals. Then maneuver the antenna down to the electric lock/unlock button and try to push the unlock side down. You might have to bend your antenna a little bit to maneuver it right but it will work. You just have to work at it. Be patient.

Actually, take a screwdriver and push the lock aside. (sorry I can't explain, I've never done it but it was on the news) This is a known malfunction in the Intrepid's and other Chrysler cars design.

Don't do it yourself. You will only end up damaging the car. Just have a professional come over.

I had a tow truck come to my house. They put a plastic wedge in the door, pried it open a bit, and then pulled up the lock with a long hook, just a thought...don't try it.

Take a wire hanger. Use hook near the location of the button.
