Q: Locked keys in trunk.

Locked keys in trunk
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. You can use a slim jim tool or a coat hanger to open the driver door to get to a lever behind the driver seat to open the trunk. If your vehicle does not have a lever to open the trunk, then you can try using two small screwdrivers (eye glass fix size) to unlock the truck latch through the trunk lock. The latch is different than the doors and easier to open. If you need further assistance with locking your keys in the trunk, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
