Q: I locked my keys in the trunk and the carn

asked by on

I locked my keys in the trunk. My car is locked also and it has a viper alarm. Just need to get in the trunk. What should I do?

My car has 158000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello.

If your keys are locked in the trunk then I would try to source a spare key to open the trunk. If you do not have a spark key you may have to call a professional locksmith to unlock the trunk for you, which may sound the alarm.
