Locked my keys in the car :( how do I open it?

Only have one key and I just manage to lock it in my car (the -07 R/T), good thing it is in my driveway.

Before I start digging with a coat hanger, is it possible to open it the old fashion way or will I be wasting my time.

If there are any special tricks please PM me if you don't want to write it in a public forum.

DON'T GROW UP, IT'S A TRAP!

I would call a locksmith and eat the charge so you dont damage anything. Then get a non keyfob key from online and get it cut but not programmed so it will only open your doors. Ill send you one idea but it is a last resort.

The thing is that I am located in Sweden where the charger was never sold so the locksmith will probably screw it up as much as I would.

I have been meaning to get an extra key but didn't get around to it so this is the punishment and a lesson to be learned

Just went out to start violating the poor car and before starting I felt the rear door handle and the door opened
I have been cleaning the car today and I thought I had pressed the central door lock button but obviously I had just pressed the buttons on the front doors!

A spare key is now being ordered!

So I guess my recommendation of a well placed brick through a window won't be needed.

Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?

My suggestion was going to be "open the door", to be an equal smart-ass. Turns out that was the right answer. Weird.

But seriously, this is one of those topics that comes up from time to time and it's probably worth repeating... develop good habits. First, I almost never put the keys down inside the car. If I'm working on some interior mod etc, the keys stay in my pocket, or outside the car. That's an easy rule to generally abide by. But here's the biggest rule. Never lock the car except using the keyfob, while all doors are shut. Ever. If you have to use the keyfob to lock the car, it'll never get locked inside. Don't ever use the lock buttons inside the car. Just don't. Ever. No, not even then. If you're cleaning the car and accidentally hit a button, immediately unlock it again. Not to beat the point to a pulp, but this is a habit we need to follow like religion. Thou shalt not.
