locked out of your car

have you ever been locked out of your car and have the battery disconnected with hood closed so you couldn't use your remote? well that just happened to me and i have successfully got the car unlocked without calling pop-a-lock or using another key. all you have to do is remove the battery cover and reconnect the battery from underneath the car. just dont get fried in the process. if you want any detailed information about this let me know and i will tell in full about all of my troubles. hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.

The only question I have is why was the battery disconnected and the hood closed?

All fine and dandy if you have power locks. Just easier not to lock yourself out.

^^^ like Peter Griffen did. He's inside his car using a coat hanger to pick up the keys on the ground outside the car only to hit em on the closed window and drop em again.

Pull back the top of the passenger door and use a stiff wire. Works everytime for me!
