Default Don't lock your keys in your car

A buddy at work locked his keys in his 95 Bonneville SE last night.. He doesn't have an extra set of keys to it so he had to call the cops out to try and jimmy it open. Well, even before the cops got there they said that the Bonneville'* are extremely hard to get into... one of the hardest cars they've done and that he would have to sign a waiver incase anything was damaged in the process. Anyway, the cop gets out there and spends an HOUR in below freezing temperatures then finally got it opened.. By tthe time he did he was getting really frustrated with the car. lol. Just a little warning, if you lock your keys in, the Bonny is a real pain to get back into..

Guess maybe the cop didn't know what he was doing then maybe?

You were filling it up with it running??? Thats illegal here in MI. An easy way to blow your car up if there is a little static electricity...or so I've been told.

My dad locked the keys in our '02 Olds 88 when I was like 8 and he called some wrecker company to come open the door and it took him almost a half hour to get it open.

The ol' 1985 Toyota doesn't even let you leave the keys in the ignition when you lock the doors... if the key'* in, and you push down the lock, *click* they all pop back up.

I know the 1991 doesn't have this, and if the 1995 doesn't, I'd sure as hell hope that current GM models have it. It'* at least 20 year old (simple, I assume) technology

New GM cars still don't have that. But just don't be a dumbass and lock your keys in the car... VW'* are a PITA to lock keys in because it won't let you lock the drivers door unless you do so with the key. I work for a detail shop and we had to leave a Jetta outside with the keys locked in it for a customer, and you had to lock all the doors with the back door open, then lock the drivers door with the key, then put the key in the car through the back door, then close the back door. A true PITA.

Its nice technology, but I'd rather leave it simple. If I lock my keys in my car, then I'm a dumbass.

well its not illegal here i think...i do it all the time in the winter...

they proved on myth busters that a cell phone wont set it off...and one spark is not going to blow up a car, maybe start a fire...but if thats how im meant to die...so be it

my '96 won't let me lock the door with the key in the ignition. So the only way I'm getting locked out is if I throw them on the seat and push the lock button.

Turn your car off fool,

Custom a guy came from AAA to get mine 2 weeks ago when i locked them in at work. Bastard got it under 20 seconds. He was working the rear door, at the window that doesn't move.

The guy from the lock company was driving a black alero with a body kit, and sounded like magnaflows. WHen he put his tool in the trunk i saw a BIG blue bottle.
