someone please HELP!!!!
came out of the grocery store yesterday and was not able to get into my truck! Neither of my 2 keys would get me in so i called CAA and they were not able to open the locks so towed it to the dealership this morning they tell me that they have to either break the window to get in! Anyone have this happen to them? I did read on the forums about changing batteries on the keys which was helpful so anyone got any ideas or suggestions?

Seriously?! Break a window? The keys don't work as it is... Why break a window so the truck can have two problems (keys don't work and a broken window)?? Order a new key from them and wait for it to come in!

Ummmmmmm, just curious...... won't the key fit in the door lock and turn? I have a dead battery in one of my two keys and that is how I get in my 2002 when I use the dead key... turn it counter-clock wise once to unlock drivers door (twice to unlock the other doors)...

Let us know!!

Cheers!!

do not break a window, break the windshield or better yet.... tell them to rent a Jaws-of-life from the nearest fire dept and tear the whole rooftop off. WTF.

As I understand - even dealer wants to break the window....
I wonder if he tried to open his car or look alike? No laughing, my wife couple years ago came home with somebody else s car (Toyota Camry) - no remote and key fit just fine and that one was identical to ours... luckily she noticed different stuff inside while parking in garage , went back to parking and her car was still there LOL So maybe somebody else's car will be broken into by the dealer.... good tabloid story.. LOL

Would never happen in a BMWs. It would be interesting to know the outcome of this.
