asked by on

I lost my one and only key that I had for the car in I need to move it before the neighbors to it they said by tomorrow. I would push it but it needs to go uphill two houses?

My car has 188000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. I’m not sure we’d be able to help you here. If the vehicle is locked, you’d need a locksmith to find a way to unlock your vehicle (as that’s not something a mechanic would do). Once the vehicle is accessible, a professional mechanic could replace your ignition lock cylinder with a new key.
