Locking Your Keys in the Car: What to Do and How a Professional Locksmith Can Help

Locking your keys inside your car can be an incredibly frustrating experience. It’s something that can happen to anyone, regardless of how careful or organized they may be. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, there are a few steps you can take to resolve the issue quickly and efficiently. This article will outline what you should do when you lock your keys in the car and how a professional locksmith can provide the necessary assistance.

  1. Remain Calm and Assess the Situation:

The first and most important step is to remain calm. Panicking will only make the situation more stressful and may lead to poor decision-making. Take a deep breath and try to assess the situation objectively. Check if you have a spare key or if there are any alternative points of entry, such as an open window or a different unlocked door.

  1. Call for Roadside Assistance:

If you’re a member of an automobile association such as AAA or have roadside assistance coverage through your insurance, give them a call. These services often include lockout assistance, so they can send a professional to help you unlock your car. If you don’t have this coverage, consider calling a local locksmith directly.

  1. Contact a Professional Locksmith:

In situations where you do not have access to roadside assistance, a professional locksmith is your best choice. Research and select a reputable locksmith who specializes in automotive lockouts. Look for one with positive customer reviews, certifications, and 24/7 availability to ensure prompt assistance. A skilled locksmith will have the necessary tools and expertise to unlock your car without causing any damage.

  1. Avoid DIY Methods:

While it may be tempting to try using a coat hanger, a shoestring, or any other DIY method you’ve seen in the movies, it’s crucial to remember that modern cars come equipped with advanced security systems that make these techniques ineffective and potentially damaging. Attempting these methods can lead to costly repairs or even permanent damage that requires replacing the entire locking mechanism.

How To Use A Lishi Pick & Decoder

Locked out of your car and lost the keys? In this video we show you how to pick and then decode a Ford door lock.

Video Transcript:

This is a Ford door lock. This is a Ford ignition door and trunk two in one pick and we're going to pick this lock and then decode the cuts in the key that would fit this.

So, we can stick that in there, this is our tensioning tool, we'll lift that up out of the way, then we insert the picks all the way to the back. Then we're going to apply tension and then try and find each of these numbers is the wafer location the vertical lines the horizontal lines are the depths of the cut of the key to align those wafers properly in the cylinder to open the lock.

So, now we just this needle here and this needle here are going to indicate if there's a little bit of springiness then we know that that wafer can be moved if there's no springiness then there's either not a wafer there or it's already been picked.

So, it doesn't look like there's a four there we're not getting any springiness there. I'll go to six and we see a little springiness there so we're going to gently push down we got a click. Five. Four. Three. Two, we've got a false set, go back to six. And then we'll decode it. Six looks like a three cut, five looks like a two, four is a three, three is a two cut, two is a two cut, and there's nothing in one.

There we go there's our code. So now we would cut a key to those corresponding depths and it would unlock the door. An ignition has as many as 10 wafers. So we would use six through two that we decoded and then put that into a software program that is subscriber based and then you'll have as many as four or more options as to what those remaining cuts could be to be able to make these existing cuts and the additional three or four cuts correspond to an ignition key that would also turn the ignition. And then the next step after finding that out, is programming the transponder chip in the ignition key to be able to start the car.
