My wife and I have both done it in the last 30 days. We're fucking brilliant. Thank you roadside assistance.

I can't remember. I know I never have with my current car, as I lock it with the remote that is on the key.

Not possible in my new Challenger, it beeps the horn three times when you try it. :D

Not for many, many years (knock on wood).

There was a time when I lost or misplaced shit all the time (keys, gloves, lighters).

Then I quit getting drunk all the time. That helped tremendously. :D

I don't lock mine. I leave the keys in it hoping someone will take it. 12 years old and 200,000 miles and rust.

My Honda is the same way, problem is I went to my car after a power walk this afternoon and huffed and puffed through a cig. Completely forgot about my keys in the passenger seat. Where there's a will, there's a motherfuckin way. :shake:

My FIL has a new Maxima (sweet fuckin ride, too) that doesn't even have a key - just a small remote that he keeps in his pocket. The car senses the remote in his pocket - all he does is push a button to start the car. Very, very cool.

Twice, once after I first got the car. Another time I locked them in my car at Dodger Stadium.

I lock mine in my truck all the time.

I use the keypad combination on the door to get back in.

Still won't work in the Challenger. I did the same thing, left the keys in a cup holder on the console. Forgot they were there, when locking the car at night and figured I left them in the house. So I just pushed down the door lock button, to go back in the house. Car honked three times and did not lock.

It has a keyless go feature that senses the keys to start it, coupled with the security system, it will not let you lock them in the car. :D

Every day. I have a keypad on the door to unlock it. Leave the keys hidden inside so I don't have to carry them around.

At lunch today with the engine running... At least the windows were cracked and I was able to use a thick wire to force the lock open. First time for everything. Timely thread though...

Never. Never lost my keys or wallet, and never locked myself out of my car or house.

Last year, wy wife locked herself out of the house and then realized she didn't have the keys to the car either. She had to haul ass to get to my oldest son's school in time to pick him up, and then they had to walk back. He's says "errr....where's the car." She says "be quiet."

They traipse home and wait on the steps for me (no cell phone either).

ROFL

Soon after that we implement the hidden key trick. Oy.

ROFL I did that at the golf course one time, was in a hurry and was kind of late for the tee time. Popped the trunk open, left the car running with the keys in it, and when I had my shoes on, shut the trunk. \

Holy shit, I just called the lock service, had them leave the keys in the clubhouse, and teed off anyway. :D

I did it once in college. Probably 5 years ago or so. It's a lot harder to do when you have a remote to lock it with that's attached to your keys.

About a month ago. $30 for a locksmith to come and open up my door in the pouring rain and lightning. He seemed a little upset.

It was about 12 years ago, the first and only time ever. I had to get a locksmith who charged 45 bucks to get them out.:cuss:

I thought I locked my key in the wife's mini-van last week. Turns out I had dropped it on my way into a city-hall meeting. A lady turned it into the po-po. The po-po found me and gave it up.

So, I'm not so dumb that I'll lock the keys in the car but I'm dumb enough to think I did. Where does that leave me?

I've only done it once. I was driving, got a call, and pulled into a McDonald's parking lot. I had a long call and turned the car off (keys in ignition), and when I finished I thought, "Well, I'm here. Might as well get me a cheeseburger." I got out of the car, swung the door, and realized my error when it was about two inches from shutting but couldn't catch it.

It was in about 2002 or 2003.

I've heard it's easier for the locksmith to get them out of the convertible if the top is down. Can you verify?

Sure it does. What's the difference between having a key in your pocket and a key 10 seconds from your pocket?

Being locked out implies that the primary method of unlocking the car has been locked inside the vehicle, necessitating going to a back-up method of unlocking said car. In Skip's case, the hidden, magnetic device that contains the back-up key.

If you have a key in the immediate vicinity then you're not technically locked out. You're just using a different key.

Let me put it this way: why did Skip need to go and use the hidden key?

2 weeks ago. I live out in the sticks, and such keep my keys in the cupholder so I don't lose them. Ran to town to get a haircut, park, throw the keys in the cup holder, lock the door for some reason and realize I left the keys in it as I'm shutting the door. Found out the Hide-a-key fell off.

It's been years but I remember the situation though. I have a little Nissan truck that has a sliding window in the back. One winter's night near Christmas I was dressed in my Santa suit on my way to do a "gig". Well, this suit didn't have pockets and with no thought I closed the door behind me after locking it. Remembering my sliding window, I crawled in the bed of my truck reached in and grabbed my keys.

My imagination went wild as I wondered what other who saw me thought about what was going on, seeing this big guy in a full Santa suit trying to squeeze in a small opening through a window.

Ever since then I've bought one of those magnetic hide-a-key thingy.

Back in December my girlfriend's car battery died so I, being the gentleman that I am, offered to jump her car for her and suggested that she go inside to keep warm since it was about -4 degrees. I proceed to pop the hood, put the key in the ignition so I don't have to take off my gloves to get it out of my pocket, and close the door so I can get around to the hood. I fiddle with the cables a little and wait till I think it's ready to go. Then I walk back to open the driver door and just as I reach for the handle the car locks itself! I still can't imagine why Volkswagen would think that you would want the car to lock itself if you left your key in the ignition and closed the door.

Then he uses the other key to get into the car. It's quite simple. If your plane stalls did you crash? Not necessarily. You took corrective action and landed safely. Skip left a set of keys in his car and took corrective action to enter the car.

Correct. And he went to the back-up because he locked his primary keys inside the car. Hence, saying that he's never locked his keys in the car because he had an alternative method of entry is erroneous.

It's like smashing the window in order to get inside. The method of retrieving the keys is irrelevant.

It's not like smashing a window because there is no broken glass. A key is a key is a key. There are often multiple keys for the same lock here in America.

I haven't done it for a really long time, although the truck I just bought has those stupid auto-locking doors, and I know it's only a matter of time before somehow, some way, I get locked out of it because of them.
