Do you have a car with keyless entry? Have you been locked out of your car and don’t know how to get back in?
Most people have been locked out of their car at least once in their life.
If you use your favourite search engine to find how to get into your car without a key, you will find plenty of methods but all these methods require specialised tools and knowledge to safely use these tools.
In fact, most people do not have these tools just lying around.
The problem gets further complicated when you have a keyless entry system and your car keys are inside your car.
First and foremost, it is important for you to keep in mind that cars are designed to be extremely hard to break into.
There are a couple of methods such as the wire hanger method or the screwdriver and metal rod method you could try on your own but without proper training, there is a high chance that you will end up damaging the wiring within the door or the airbags.
Also, you might end up denting or damaging the door frame and your auto insurance policy is unlikely to pay for those damages.
This is why you should always call professional autolocksmiths to help you get your car back without any damage.
Professional locksmiths can help you in these situations and promptly.
Here is how professional locksmiths can help you get into your car with keyless entry system.
Reprogramming the Keyless Entry System
Reprogramming the keyless entry system requires specialised knowledge and training.
Professional locksmiths have access to specialised tools that allow them to reprogram the lock and allow entry into the car.
The keyless remote of your car is a short-range radio transmitter. When you press one of the buttons, a radio signal is emitted.
These radio waves contain an encoded signal to the receiver unit that is installed inside the car.
This coded message is then decoded by the receiver unit and your car doors are eventually unlocked.
You can reprogram the remote for your car on your own when you are able to get inside your car.
However, doing it from outside requires specialised tools and only professional locksmiths have the necessary tools and knowledge to do it.
Another system professional locksmiths use to unlock a car is with the help of a specialised tool known as VATS Passkey Decoder.
This tool allows the locksmith to calculate the electrical resistance values of your car.
The decoded information obtained from the tool is then used to program a mechanical key cutter.
The key cutter than creates a new key precisely resembling the original key of your car.
J Tool or Slim Jim
In some cases, a professional auto locksmith will use a slim jim for unlocking your car without the key.
It takes a lot of training, experience and knowledge to use this tool without damaging or disabling the electrical system or airbags of your car.
A J tool is also used sometimes to reach inside of the car and unlock it from inside. The J or L tools are typically used for unlocking older cars.
