Re: Key locked in car (no spare) opps!

I called in the RAC this morn'. RAC patrolman couldn't find my house and I missed his calls - he went to another job. At the second attempt, the local garage mechanic was dispatched and he found my house. After a bit of a struggle he got the rear door unlocked and I have the keys.

I'm unsure how the car locked itself with the keys inside? But I'll be disabling the passive locking as it would seem likely that it was this that caused the doors to lock. It certainly wasne me!

I'll also be looking at getting a spare key cut even if it will only open the door lock.

Other than that the car has been 100% reliable & trouble free, so mustn't grumble.
