Default Always carry a paperclip...

When you lock your keys in the trunk

So I'm off to the auto wrecker picking up parts for one of my "in-progress" mods. I put the box in the trunk and set down my keys. I decided to have a "quick look" at the stuff and became distracted. Somewhat pleased with my purchase, I close my trunk. DOH!

By the way, OnStar can't open the trunk I always keep my glove box locked, just to make it that much more difficult for someone to get in the trunk (long drawn out story here)...

Can anyone guess how I got on my way again?

(Hints - No spare keys, No lock picking, Time to fix - under two minutes)

There is only the pass through, but that wasn't it. Interesting thought though, hadn't considered that one.

Do you mean the switch? It'* in the locked glove box. It connects to the Instrument Panel Integration Module deep under the dash.

Keep going though....
