What to do when you are Locked out of your own Car?

It is a situation nobody wants to be in but unfortunately, happen to all of us at some point.

It is a situation nobody wants to be in but unfortunately, happen to all of us at some point. You parked your car safely, locked the doors, and slammed the doors but there is something in your mind telling you that there is something very important you left inside your car. It could be your bag, your cellphone, wallet or worse your car key. You start to panic as you realize you have been locked out of your car. Frustration will then kick in and your day is ruined.

We have several reasons why we buy a car. For most of us, it is the convenience of traveling from one point to another. The ability to go wherever you want, whenever you want is the primary reason, together with comfort and safety. But none of these will matter the moment you found out that you have locked yourself out of your car.

Naturally, we try to handle the situation ourselves but often times it is proven to be not ideal unless if you are technically knowledgeable to handle such situation. If you are not, most likely you will end up damaging your own car and will cost you even more money, time and frustration to get things back to normal.


It is very important to calm down and think positively should you fall into this situation.

Where is the duplicate key?

Every car has its own duplicate key for the drivers. Many cars are driven by more than one person. You can easily call the person who has the duplicate and request for an assistance. This is the most appropriate action one should do in a situation like this. If your duplicate is left at home, depending on the distance, as long as your car is safe you can always go home and get the duplicated key. This may take more of your time but surely will do no damage to your property.

Seek help nearby

This is less likely to happen but chances are you will meet someone knowledgeable or who had experienced the same situation as you do and might have some useful input to handle the situation.

Never try to break yourself in

Breaking in is only an option if you are in the middle of nowhere. Although it may allow you to get in your car but you will have to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars depending on the damage inflicted in the door-lock. It is a No-No situation if you are in the middle of the city if you don't want nearby people to dial 911.
