If you are locked out of your car, there are a few things you can try to do to gain access:
- Check for an unlocked door or open window: Make sure you check all of the doors and windows of your car to see if any of them are unlocked or open.
- Use a spare key: If you have a spare key, use it to open the car.
- Call a locksmith: If you don’t have a spare key, you can call a locksmith to help you gain access to your car.
- Call for roadside assistance: If you have roadside assistance, call them for help.
- Call the police: If none of the above options work, you can call the police for assistance. They may be able to help you get into your car or they may be able to provide you with the contact information for a locksmith who can help.
The most common reasons people get locked out of their car are:
- Lost or misplaced keys: People often misplace their keys or leave them inside their car, which can lead to being locked out.
- Dead car battery: A dead car battery can prevent you from using your keyless entry fob to unlock your car, leaving you locked out.
- Broken lock: A broken lock can prevent you from being able to open your car door, leading to a lockout.
- Locked keys in the car: Sometimes, people accidentally lock their keys inside the car while it is running, or they leave the keys in the car and then accidentally lock the doors.
- Damaged key: A damaged key can prevent you from being able to unlock your car, leading to a lockout.
- Leaving the car unattended while running: Some people leave their car running while they step out of it, and the car locks automatically when the driver is not inside, leading to a lockout.
Note: avoiding these situations can be done by always keeping a spare key, checking the battery status of keyless entry fob and being aware of your surroundings when entering or exiting your car.
