For those of you who have a car that can be unlocked

that remote button on your key ring: If you lock your

keys in the car and the spare keys are home, and you

don’t have “OnStar,” here’s your answer to the


If someone has access to the spare remote at your

call them on your cell phone (or borrow one from

someone if the cell phone is locked in the car too!)

Hold your (or anyone’s) cell phone about a foot from

your car door and have the other person at your home

press the unlock button, holding it near the phone on

their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from

having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no

object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if

you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for

your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk, or

have the “horn” signal go off, or whatever!)

(Editor’s Note * It works fine! We tried it out and it

unlocked our car over a cell phone!) Distance doesn’t

seem to be a factor.
