Ways You Can Get Back In Your Car If You’ve Been Locked Out

Mistakes are made by everyone, and sometimes we’re in a rush and accidentally lock the keys inside of our car.  It’s a horrible feeling, but it’s happened to just about everyone. We all wish we could just get a car key replacement at the drop of a hat, but that can often times be expensive and time consuming. One of the old sponsors of the Meineke bowl, the car key replacement services by DML Lockmiths in Plano, say that the average cost of a replacement is over $200.  However, when you mistakenly get locked out and you need to break into your car. there are several ways you can get into your car without breaking or damaging anything. Below we’ve listed some of our favorite ways to get back into your car if you’ve been locked out.

Unlock your car Manually from Inside

It is very possible to open up your car using a wedge like tool. many cars can be open slightly enough to allow the slide in of a metal object. The first thing you need to do is to hold the edge of the door with a wedge or any tool that can hold open the top of the door you bent. Slowly slide the thin metal or hanger through the opening and carefully try to grab the locking pin and pull it till the door opens up.

Unlock your car with Automatic lock from the Inside

Opening a car with an automatic lock inside is a little more difficult than the manual car lock. The difficulty is dependent on two things. Which is how easy you can open the top of the car and where the door lock is located in the car.

The first thing you need to do is to locate where the door lock is, then use a hanger after slightly opening the top of the the door. Side in the hanger and just make sure you press the unlock button.

Unlock your car from the lower window part

The first two methods involved sliding the metal from the top of the door window, but here you will slide the metal from the lower part of the window. The risk here is that you can damage something but it is the fastest also since you can locate the unlock pin faster. Use a slim metal and slide it through the lower part of the door and locate the lock. You need to be aware that this method is not not recommended for an automatic car in other not to cause damage in the car.

You can also unlock through the Truck

Cars with manual lock might sometimes have their truck not lock even when the doors are locked. The first thing to do is to look for any opening through the truck.once you find an opening, slide into the opening a metal that is long enough to be able to locate the lock. once you get the lock just hook it with the metal and pull .

When you are about to choose the best car battery then make sure that you are inspecting it on the closing level. Make sure that the wiring of the batteries is reliable and you can make it run for the long term use.


When you drive a lot then, of course, you don’t have time to see the car time to time but at the end of the day, it’s important to inspect the battery. You should see the terminals and others parts carefully if they have any kind of corrosion.

It would be great that if you clean your car battery once in a week with a cloth to keep it away from any kind of moisture and dirt to prolong its life.


Extra accessories like music, lights, AC, and others are responsible for making the car weak when you are not driving. Many people keep an AC on, music on and, they keep the lights on which makes the battery weaker.

When you are not driving a car then you should stop using the things because it will be of no use. To make the battery life long avoid using these features of the car when you are not driving.

Have a charger which should be reliable and long lasting so you can charge your batteries with the help of charger. You can also charge a battery with the help of power bank.


The water level of the battery should be checked twice in a week. If you don’t have enough water in your battery then the possibilities are that your battery will be down soon. You need to invest more in it.

You don’t have to pour normal water in the batteries. You can go to the mechanic and they will guide you about the distilled water.


If your battery is new and still it’s not working properly then you need to go to the mechanic to check the alternator of the car. Due to the problem in your alternator in your car, you may experience the problem in the batteries of the car.

Another reason of weak battery must be over charging. If you have bought new car batteries it may be possible that due to the over-charging battery is not working well.
