Cell phone salvation!
Hey! This is amazing! I read this in tinamarie's journal, and went out and tried it. If you lock your keys in your car, you can call someone on your cell phone that has a back-up set of your keys and they can unlock your doors over the cell phone! Really!
Read more in her journal entry here.

Now, Allie and I personally tested this, so I know it isn't an Urban Legend. However, I would recommend that you try this for yourself, because it may not work on all cars with remote entry, and you may need to find the spot around your car where it works best. For us, it appears to be beside the front passenger door. I have a 2003 Honda Pilot and it worked. It really, really worked!

I thought I would post it here since anyone not on my friend's list couldn't read it. :)

For those of you who have a car that can be unlocked by that remote

button on your key ring: if you lock your keys in the car and the

spare keys are home, and you don't have "OnStar," here's your answer

to the problem!



If someone has access to the spare remote at your home, call on your

cell phone (or borrow one from someone if the cell phone is locked in

the car too)! Hold your (or anyone's) cell phone about a foot from

your car door and have the other person at your home press the unlock

button, holding it near the phone on their end.



Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to

you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and

if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you

can unlock the doors (or the trunk, or have the "horn" signal go off,

or whatever)!

   I want to try this but the Subaru is already here. Maybe tomorrow.

Yeah, some time when one of us is away from home, I'm going to test it just in case her remote was actually able to work from the back room of the house, which I highly doubt.

neat!

Damn..that's cool as hell. I'm going to have to try this. :)

It only sorta worked because my remote worked from the farthest part of the house without the cell phone. :( We're going to have to try it when one of us is away from the house.
