It said if you're locked out and have a spare keyfob at home and know someone is in. Phone home and get them to hold the spare keyfob near the phones microphone while they press the button on the keyfob. At the same time you hold your phone close to the car.

The radio waves are supposed to be carried over the phone and unlock the car. I have my doubts about it being possible, but it was sent in by a mechanical engineer, so don't think it was a wind-up (it's not that sort of magazine anyway, it's an IMI members only magazine).

Feel free to give it a try to see if it works.
