If the key is locked inside your car, call a locksmith to help you out. Only happened one time, seems that must be this time.
It's not locked inside. It won't unlock with a regular key. I don't have a remote key. It only has one door lock. The locksmith can't help me. Thanks anyway.
Shame you are not here where i am, i know a locksmith that can open that door befor you can pull the key out of your pocket. Even if the lock is broken! Without breaking anything else. You will be surprised at what a 'LOCKSMITH' can do. Some of them cats are unreal! No such thing as "can't".
Well maybe since i have seen some of this guys work, i may be expecting too much. He might be one of a kind. He once looked through the window at a key locked inside a car laying on the consol and duplicated one just by looking at that one then unlocked the door with it in less than 5 minutes!
Sorry for the rant, but that was unreal to me. But even without a key there are ways to open the lock or latch mechanism. Got to be a way to do this without taking the vehicle apart or glass breakage. Hope you get someone that can help you out.
Thanks for trying to help. I just found out that our local sheriff's department has a kit and it took the deputy less than 2 minutes. If there's a next time, I won't take anyone's word regarding anything. Someone here said the sheriff's department didn't have a kit. Now, I can go to my job before I lose it. I'm so relieved!
