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.

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.

Shoot the lock out....second thoughts....Nahhh.. go with the brick idea.

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.

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

When i was going to DeVry, i locked the keys in my old taurus. i started to ask the security guys for help, but inside their office i saw a brick, which was labeled "DeVry slim jim"

i went and called somebody else :)

Whats the big deal about having a slim jim? I have one, its just like having a gun. Just because you have it doesn't mean your going to use it for no good.
I like a pice of brake line depending on the car... But i won't explain how i use it.
