how do you unlock your car with keys inside?
this is a hard one, and there's no way to be sure that it will work. the first step would be to check the physical situation of your vehicle. is the lock able to turn with some effort? if so, then it's possible that you can use something like a coat hanger as a lever against the window – but again there's no guarantee on this method.
if nothing has worked so far and you're really adamant about unlocking your car, head over to autozone and buy a small power drill — 3/8″ drills work best for this task — and carefully hand-punch the hole through the side-window plastic right where your crv logo is located (again, please pay attention here!).
what do i do if i locked my keys in the car?
if you’ve got a spare key for your vehicle, grab it and go into the driver’s side to unlock the passenger door. your spouse or friend can then come out and help you reunite with your keys. if this isn’t an option, push down on the gas pedal – this opens up the hood if it is closed – and look for an aluminum lever protruding from beneath a few inches inside of edge of dashboard. push down on this lever and release if necessary before removing them to ensure their proper alignment. from there, use a 13mm socket or wrench to unfasten each wheel bolt that attaches your wheel(s) to axel(s) before removing them from vehicle frame
how much does it cost to unlock car with keys inside?
that depends on a lot of factors. the make and model, the current laws in place, the owner's intent (crimes typically carry higher fines), the number of keys present.
one problem is that your car can be stolen if you leave it unlocked with the key inside for too long – hence why most countries allow authorities to seize cars if this is deemed to be happening with any frequency. if you're driving an average vehicle without any special features (sports cars are more expensive), then about $500-$800 depending on location, with some states like california costing as much as $1500 depending all the factors mentioned above. the good news is that most insurance companies will offer these locks at discounted rates after an initial period of use
