Not funny story and questions about somehow locking keys in car, and then power died.
Hello everyone, let me share a story with you. Previously I had a Cadillac STS-V with electronic locks and keyless ignition and entry. In the 2 years I owned the car, I locked the keys inside of it 2-3 times because if they were on a "dead spot" the doors would lock and not sense the transmitter inside the car to open the doors. And I always leave the keys in the car in my garage.
You would think after getting burned 2-3 times previously with this problem that I either would A) not leave the keys in the car; or B) get a spare door key for the M6 based on the fact it uses a very similar keyless system with electronic locks.
Fast forward to today, where somehow the battery on my M6 is dead (that is what it means when you pull the handle and the locks dont light up, correct?) and my only keyfob with the door key is in the glove box. Not too sure how this perfect storm of situations (battery dead, fob in glove box, doors locked) occurred, but I am quickly learning that it sucks.
Two of my personal friends are locksmiths, and both say that they cannot cut a key from scratch for the drivers door because it is a security key. That leaves me with the only option being to hopefully order a replacement door key from BMW, provided they have it on file. Oh yeah, to make matters even funnier, I left the title in the glove box and Im pretty sure they require that to give a replacement key.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
