How to get your Keys out of your Trunk Locksmiths

Have you ever been in such a rush that you locked your car keys in your trunk?  This is something that has probably happened to all of us at some point in time, and it can be pretty annoying, especially if you have somewhere you need to be.  If this has happened to you, continue reading for our tips and tricks on how to get your keys out of your trunk.

How to get your keys out of your trunk

If your lock is inside the interior door handle, you will need to call a professional.  If you have an old fashioned lock with little buttons, you are in luck; all you need is a wire coat hanger.  Take the coat hanger and make most of the hanger straight with a small hook at the end.  Insert the hanger between the rubber and the side of the window.  Carefully hook the hanger around door lock and pull it up.  Once you have the door unlocked, check the area near the driver’s left knee for the latch to open the trunk.  If there is no latch, going through the cushion of the back seat is another option.

If you have a newer car

Many new cars use electrical security systems.  If this is the case with your car, you can save a lot of money by opening the door yourself, or with assistance, and then get into the trunk.  In order to get into the trunk, look for the fuse panel that is along the driver’s door, near to the dashboard.  The door usually closes on this panel.  Locate the 4 fuses (the 7.5 and 5 amps) on the left and wait a minute.  Replace them into their original places and then test to see if the door unlocks.  If the door does unlock, the system is deactivated and you are good to go!  If your car does not unlock, pull 4 fuses at a time until you get the correct combination.

If you’ve tried these methods and have had no success, hire a professional to help.  Use TalkLocal today to get in contact with multiple highly rated locksmiths in your area for free.  Simply enter a brief description of your service needs along with your location and availability, and TalkLocal will do the rest.  Stop searching for the right service professional and use TalkLocal.

    I think it is always a good idea to try and get in through your regular door before trying to get into a trunk. However, by this time you probably have a locksmith with you and can ask him if it is easier to go through the door or to just get in through the trunk. However, most new cars have seats that fold down by the trunk. Hopefully, your car has this and you can avoid the fuses altogether.
