Keys in the boot

Hello all,
closed the boot today with my keys inside. The car is locked and no spare key. I've been told i can try to get a replacment key from BMW or tow it to a dealership and they can reset the computer? If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Barry

Call the RAC, if you want to do it yourself you can smash one of the rear fog/reverse lights, pull out the bulb holder and fish the keys out, a second hand light unit is around £20

Unable to insert key completely into boot lock , so it wont unlock the boot


Hi Stephen:
Hmmmm....
2 things to consider:
- Key - has it been damaged? If you have a spare key try to gently jiggle it into the lock. If it won't go all the way in then the problem will be with the lock.
- Lock - Is there an obstruction? Try using WD-40 with the plastic tube in the nozzle. Slide it as far into the lock as possible and try to flush out the problem. Sometimes insects will make nests in key slots. They did in my ride on mower ignition.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

I have a Mercedes E220 CDI, I can not open the boot by the remote control or the internal button and I locked the key inside the boot ... Please help


You need the key to operate the boot from inside the car. Do you have a spare key somewhere? Do you seats fold down? There must be a way to find the wires that activate the boot from the boot switch in the car. Maybe you can apply power directly to those wires to operate the boot?

How to remove the back seat of my peugoet 307cc


Hi,

I had the same situation today. The rest of my car was open but the keys were locked in the boot. Fortunately, using a long, hooked rod, a nice man was able to fish the keys out from inside the car. Just above the back seats, the plastic is soft and flappy. You can squeeze tools in and out through there (and an arm at a push) and try to fish the keys out. I hope this helps other Peugeot owners.

Key fob won't unlock or lock car VW Golf 2000


You probably caused a short circuit when you changed the light. Change fuse #14. Next time, don't turn the lights on until you are finished changing the lights.
