Is there anything more frustrating than locking your keys in your car? All of a sudden, you find yourself stuck without a way out. As frustrating as locking your keys in the car may be, you can take certain steps to ensure it doesn’t happen. Citywide Towing Service is here to talk about some tips that may help you keep your keys on the outside of your vehicle when the doors are locked so that you don’t run into this problem again.
Keep Your Keys With You Always
The best way to ensure your keys aren’t ever locked in the car is to establish a habit of keeping your car keys on you at all times. This may mean putting them in your pocket or placing them in your purse as soon as you have turned your car off. Many cars don’t use a key to start anymore which makes this easier as you don’t ever have to get your key out of your pocket in the first place.
Always Use the Key Fob to Lock the Doors
If you get in the habit of locking the doors using the key fob, you won’t find your keys locked in your vehicle anymore. When you use the button the door of your car to lock the vehicle, it makes it much easier to get your keys locked on the inside when you walk away from the car. With the fob in your hands to lock the doors, you won’t ever run into this problem anymore.
Don’t Let Key Fob Battery Get Too Low
Sometimes you may try to lock your car using your fob only to find that it isn’t working. If you haven’t ever replaced the batteries in your fob, this may be the culprit. Likewise, if you know that the batteries in the fob aren’t dead and it still isn’t working, it could be a problem with your car battery. Sometimes you may have to use an actual key to unlock doors when you have a dead car battery.
Have Spare Car Keys Made
If you don’t have any spare keys made for your car, this is a good time to do so. You never know when you may need one. You can keep the spare inside a pocket in your purse, or even somewhere at your home so that you have a way of safely getting back into your car when the keys get locked in there. Some people ever purchase a magnetic box that can be hidden somewhere on the vehicle with a spare key inside just for emergency purposes.
