This is why I don't want a car that doesn't have a way for me to manually unlock the doors. I have worked in it for 18 years and I have learned that everything breaks and you always need a backup plan . In this case it would be a key. Well I say all this then I wonder if op had one of the keyless cars or if op didn't think about using the key to manually unlock the door. Hmm

39- thats because theyre not meant to last forever. Car manufacturers make little profit of the sale of the vehicle in comparison to the sale of spare parts that need to be replaced over the course of the vehicles life.

You most likely need to replace the key.( it has a sensor that the car uses the start the ignition). my mom has had enough car problems for me to know them all by Now

I understand the point your making fully. But the message im trying to get across is along the same lines as my last post. If you have 2 cars. One has fully electronic climate control, the other has a mechanical heater control setup. Say for example one of the vents stops changing directions in both cars. Which is going to be the cheaper repair? Obviously the mechanical as the parts are cheaper and its easier to diagnose. Thats why they cram so much useless shit in modern cars. So you have to spend the money to get it repaired by a specialist.

All cars have a way to be unlocked manually. It's required by law. What does happen is car manufacturers try to hide it in inconspicuous places for aesthetic purposes.

Just don't buy a new car period, they all suck. Unless you're rich and you burn money as a hobby.. Then you can buy yourself a Ferrari, and if you have problems with the locks you won't care because you own a fucking Ferrari. ;)

Advice: turn off the alarm before using the key, keys don't disable car alarms anymore - only the remotes do. Or have the dealer check your key's chipset to make sure it isn't faulty.

Well, I wouldn't know how to contact Optimus Prime. He has an unlisted number, unfortunately. I'm sure Shia wouldn't mind arranging a meeting, though. Why the two of us are old pals. Oh the laughs we shared last week at the court house, right before the judge handed me that restraining order... Good times... Good times...

In a gas station? In a situation where the car owner is above 18 (obviously) and has enough common sense to notice the real owner coming to move the car away? Where your key works with the car youre looking at? Computer says..... no.
