When you get locked out of the Honda car, it can be stressful and create unnecessary anxiety. But this should not make you panic. There are various methods to use to unlock the car. You can unlock it using a Honda keyless entry system or use any other unlock tools.
In some cases, you may need to use a locksmith wedge to unlock the car. Here are some of the methods you can use to unlock your Honda without keys.
Get help from a person inside the car
Sometimes you may lose the keys when there is someone inside the car. If there is, you will be lucky. All you will need to do is to give them instructions on how they can help you unlock the car even without the keys.
Most of the Honda models have an inbuilt unlock button. If this is the case, you may instruct the person inside to unlock it using the handle.
If you have Honda’s push-button key, it may help you unlock the car even if you do not have the keys. In some Honda models, the key lock may be hidden at the driver’s side door. Check if it has a small panel at the handle side.
If there is, take it off to see the unlock button. Press the unlock button on the remote to see if it opens the door. If it does not work, you may need to use other options.
Using locksmith wedges
It entails creating a small or sizeable gap between the car’s interior and either the window or the door. It allows you to insert an instrument into the hole to help release the lock. You can use a wedge to do this job. You will need to start by using a thin wedge to help you create space before you insert the larger wedges.
But if you chose to use a larger wedge, you’ll need to be cautious. Metallic wedges can damage the indoor glass or the exterior of the car. So, make use of an inflatable air wedge. It can be inserted into the small hole and pumped gently.
It will help widen the window. Once it is wide enough, you can unlock the door or pull the handle using a wire hanger.
If are unsuccessful in your attempt to unlock the car, you may need to call a locksmith who can give Honda key replacement.
They have a variety of tools including a Slim Jim. It is a metallic piece which when inserted into the lock it moves the internal rods and unlocks the door.
Use long reach tools
The tool can be helpful if you gain access to the interior of the car. It can be used to pull open the tabs. They are special tools designed to be used to open Honda cars. Slip the tool carefully into the space between the rubber seal and the window.
Push through slowly until it encounters some level of resistance. Check if it is scraping against a wire or a screw. If it is scrapping against a screw push it further. But if it is a wire, rotate it until the wire is hooked at the tip.
Using automotive lock picks
You may unlock a Honda by using lock picks. The tools are designed to manipulate the car’s window or door. You may buy the picks from an auto shop or borrow one from a professional locksmith. But you will need an automotive torsion wrench.
Place the wrench on the lock cylinder and pick the lock. The torsion wrench places tension on the cylinder to help you to easily pick the lock.
Use police assistance
If you try the above methods but still don’t gain access into your Honda car, do not despair. You can still seek help from the police. The traffic police units are trained to handle emergencies and so they can come in handy.
Besides, they are equipped with professional tools to use when responding to emergencies. If you are lucky, they may help you to unlock the car.
Use the codes to get another set of keys
If the police and the locksmith cannot help you get back into your Honda car after you lose the keys, get help from the manufacturer. Honda cars have their keys coded.
So, if your key is coded and there is a personal identification number, you can have the locksmith make a set of new keys. If you cannot remember the code off-head, ensure that you write it somewhere in the house.
Ensure the code is accessible and can be retrieved by the people you live with when you get stuck. They should be able to read it to you and help you out when you are stranded
