Locked myself out

One of them days.....

went to yearly inspection and truck failed spectacularly for all kinds of stupid non important **** and to top that off, locked myself out of my truck with both my keys inside :-(

Watched some youtube clips on how to break into cars and am heading back to get my truck with some thin wire or a hammer. If the wire trick don't work, the hammer trick will surely work

That happend to us when camping. I left my fob in the truck and my wife and I got out with the truck running, and our dog jumped up and locked the doors on us. We had to call a tow truck company that also did lockouts. He put a balloon type thing in the door and pumped in air to expand it enough to stick another tool to unlock the door. it took about 3 minutes to unlock it after idling for about 45 minutes. He was kind enough to do it for free because our dog locked us out. Lesson learned, keep the fob in my pocket!!

That's a bummer. We've all done that once or twice... Hope you get the truck straightened out soon.

Succes!!

Wedged open the door a little bit at the top and used some thin tig wire to hook the little lock thing and pulled it up. Took me about 5 mins, went suprisingly easy, might get some more practise and make a career out of this :-).

I have also done that many years ago. Since then I have always carried a spare door key in my left pocket, or wallet, to allow me access into my truck. It is especially good to have now that my doors lock automatically in 30 seconds after exiting the truck, even if the keys are left in the truck, doors will lock.

The same here. I carry a door key in my wallet for my Ram at all times. Now the doors on my Challenger will not lock at all from the outside if the FOB is in the car.

I did the magnetic hideaway key. That way it’s always available and it’s saved me a few times. But getting into my truck was really easy with a big screwdriver and coat hanger to snag the lock. There is an alarming amount of play on the top corner of the door to pry it open...

Couldn't live with a system like that, would have to break into my truck just about daily :-)!

What magnetic box did you use, no risk of the magnet not holding and the key falling off?
