How To Open Bmw Car Door Without Key
Unlock BMW Door Without Key – Use Your Shoelace – If you’ve ever been locked out of your car, but you’ve been unable to find the key, you can use your shoelace to open it. To use this trick, tie a slip knot in the middle of the shoelace and slide it through the car’s lock. To make the loop tighter, pull the string upward.

This method works only if the car’s lock is triggered upwards. Once you’ve inserted the steel rod, you’ll have to turn the key to the “On” position. This method can cause damage to the paint of your car, so it’s best avoided. A simple, non-destructive solution is an inflatable wedge. Simply put it into the door and push the unlock button.

This trick works every time ! You don’t have to spend a fortune on an inflatable wedge or other gizmo. To unlock your BMW door without a key, you’ll need a slim jim tool or a coat hanger. You’ll need a device about half the thickness of the gap in your door and a small amount of sandpaper on one side.

  • The plastic strap will likely slip off of the post.
  • But it’s worth a try.
  • And it’s easy to try! An old-fashioned trick that works with older models that use manual locks is to put a piece of thin wire on the control arm and pull it upward.
  • But this trick only works on cars with manual locks.
  • If you are locked out of your car, call roadside assistance or the police.

If you’re unable to find the key, don’t fret – there are many methods that will help you unlock the door.

Enlisted Member Drives: 2011 Z4 35i Join Date: Feb 2014 Location: Atlanta GA USA Key Lock inside car in case no comfort Access key Hi Everyone. Currently i drive a 2011 Z4 which has a key less entry, It was a $500 option so i went for it. I am so use to it now in past 3 years, on several occasion i left my key inside my car but and my car never locks out and i remember to take out my key from the car. For my new 2014 X5 I am not planning to take the comfort access as it is not a standalone option. But i am little worried as i run the risk of locking the keys inside the car. Any thoughts/suggestions, If anybody has faced this situation.

I understand the car is smart enough to realise the key is inside. All F15s have keyless start as standard but the start function only works if the key is physically inside the car. So it does have a way to detect the key is in the car. But I don’t see how the lock function would be activated without using the key fob when the engine is off.

By manually pressing the lock button on inside the car door handle and then closing your door while getting out. But i think i got answer for my question. IN BMW Assist Key Benefits section they have this option covered. Below is the excerpts from BMW Assist Section. “Door Unlock: If you ever lock your keys in your BMW, call our Response Center toll-free at 1-888-333-6118 and we will send a signal to your driver’s door to unlock it, after you provide your name and password.”

I thought they fixed that but I guess not. So the trunk/tailgate remains the only way to do it. Not sure why they can prevent you from locking your key in the car, but can’t do it when you go in through the tailgate. Seems odd.

02-18-2014, 11:14 AM # Private First Class Drives: 2014 X5 3.5d Join Date: Oct 2013 Location: Kansas City area Here is my take: keep the key in your pocket and never worry. If you never get it out of your pocket in or around the car then you can’t lose it or lock it in the car. The only problem that I can see is someone who prefers to keep their key in their purse or briefcase or other bag. _

Well I can tell you that it will lock with the keys in it. My wife went into the store to pick up something, left her purse with the keys in the car, got out, and BOOM, doors locked with key inside. Had to call BMW to do a remote, but it can happen.

Must still lock itself so nobody steals your car. It knows she left because the driver door opened. That’s different than locking the key in it yourself. Btw, the BMW remote app can also be used to unlock the doors from your phone. Unless of course that’s locked in the car too

I hear what you are saying, however, I have a Chevy Cruz and if you try and leave your keys in the car: 1. It won’t lock the doors if the keys are inside and you leave 2. It will sound a horn 3 times telling you of your mistake 3. you can’t lock the door from the outside if the keys are in

02-19-2014, 11:46 AM # Private Drives: x5 35d Join Date: Jan 2014 Location: Charleston, SC My new x5 behaves a little differently to some of the examples here, so I suspect there may be some variability based on exactly where in the car the key is sitting. For me, if there was only one key around the car and it was inside the car, (i.e. I did not have a second key in my pocket), the car refused to lock, either with the door handles or the tailgate lock button. On the other hand, if I had a second key in my pocket, the car would lock as normal, even with one key in the car. I tried it with one key in the luggage area and no key in my pocket, and the tailgate would not close when I used the “lock” button while the key was in the vehicle – as soon as I picked the key up from the cargo area, the tailgate closed normally. Also, if the car was locked and the key was in the car, it would not unlock unless I had a second key with me at the door. To me, all this means that it will be pretty hard to lock myself out (I wasn’t able to do it, but I don’t dispute others may be able to), but it is possible to lock the car if (for example) my wife’s purse with the second key in it is left in the car.

Only real difference is the horn (cool feature) and that it will lock them and prevent your $60k plus vehicle from being taken if you leave the keys in it lol

I turned my engine off and got out of my X5 to talk to a friend. My doors locked with my keys inside my purse that was still inside the car. This just happened on Saturday and we’re all still baffled and wondering HOW it happened. I had to call my fiancé to bring my spare key. My doors doesn’t lock with the keys inside AT ALL.

Check to see if you have auto lock turned on when a specified amount of time has passed and the doors haven’t been opened & closed. See excerpt from owners manual belowmake sure you don’t have the auto lock if no door is opened turned on. It is an obscure feature that some use to make sure the car is locked if they unlock the door but never open itthe door will then relock. When I read that settingI made sure it was turned off to prevent what happened to you. Also, going back in this old threadthe OP did NOT have comfort access so some of the situations mentioned would not apply to them. But there is an anti-lockout feature that wasn’t mentioned.the OP was worried that the could lock the keys inside if they pressed the lock/unlock button on the door. Well, that wouldn’t be an issue because you can’t lock the doors with the central lock/unlock button when the driver’s door is open. That is a BMW feature that goes back for decades.

I can confirm that to be not true. I once couldn’t figure out why the trunk wouldn’t close, thought the locking mechanism was shot but it was because my keys were left in my golf bag that I had just placed in there after a round.

I think u r miss understanding the function of the feature u circled in red. That function only kicks in IF u managed to unlock the doors and not open anything, then the car will relock itself. I have left that feature ON since day 1 of owning my X5 and have a habit of not locking my car when its parked inside my garage, and never has it locked itself once overnight. So no, this feature should not be the reason for the person above u locking her keys inside, its something else. _ 2011 335is Le Mans Blue 2016 X5 xdrive 35i Alpine White

How do I unlock my BMW door from the outside?

How do I lock and unlock my BMW? – Unlocking your BMW is a simple case of pressing the unlock button at the top of the key fob. You can choose whether to unlock all the doors, or just the driver’s door, within the car’s settings menu. Similarly, pressing the BMW roundel on the centre of the key fob will lock all the doors, boot and fuel cap and the alarm system will be activated.

  • On selected models, pressing and holding down the lock button will also close the sunroof and any open windows, as well as fold in the wing mirrors.
  • To open the boot lid from outside the car, press the boot lid button at the bottom of the key fob.
  • Holding it down will release the lock and for BMWs equipped with an automatic tailgate, the boot will open.

In the unlikely event that neither supplied key fob is working, there’s no need to worry. The integrated key can be used to open and lock the car as well as the glove box. Your BMW comes supplied with two key fobs to ensure you always have a spare, but to also allow both you and an additional driver to tailor the car’s set-up to your own personal preferences.

  • Each key can store a separate driver profile which saves a number of settings including those for the air conditioning, favourite buttons and navigation system.
  • These are automatically saved to the key fob when the car is locked.
  • So if there are two regular drivers of the car, they can each use separate keys and the in-car settings automatically change according to the key being used.

There are a number of preferences available to tailor the locking system in your BMW. You can configure these by selecting Doors/key within the settings menu in the car. These settings can be changed at any time. To add or remove the key from a key ring, it’s recommended to first remove the integrated key.

How do you get keys out of a locked car with keys on the inside?

Can Locksmiths Make Keys for Cars? – An option for getting into your car if your keys are locked in it is to have a locksmith make a new key for the car. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to provide the VIN or Vehicle Identification Number to the locksmith.

Using the VIN, the locksmith will be able to make a new key that will fit the lock. The online automotive specialist, Edmunds.com, in an article titled “The High Cost of Car Key Replacement” provides an in-depth explanation about different types of keys for modern vehicles and how they are replaced.

The article also tells the cost of key replacement in California, and so, with that information, you can approximate the cost wherever you are. To get a new key, you may have to prove that you own the car. Here is a list of some of the information you may need to provide to a locksmith to get a new key made:

VIN Keycode from owner’s manual or inside front door panel Title Vehicle registration with the VIN and your name on it Insurance ID card with your name and the VIN

This may seem like a great deal of hassle to get a new key made, but it is all in the interest of protecting owners of cars from thieves. You wouldn’t want a thief to be able to call a locksmith and ask them to make a key for your car, would you?

How do you unlock a door if the keys are inside?

Download Article Download Article Whether you’re looking to open that mysterious closet or simply had the unfortunate luck of getting stuck in a strange bathroom, here’s your escape route. Stay calm and read on.

  1. 1 Use a credit card on a spring lock. Though it won’t work for deadbolts, it will work for spring locks (the kind that’s slanted and a part of a handle). Grab one that’s cheap and you don’t care about – if it breaks, no harm, no foul. A bendy, laminated card works best.
    • Force it between the lock and the frame, flush against the frame. Bend it back, forcing the lock back into the door, opening it.
    • If there’s no room between the lock and the frame, you can force it between the door and the frame above the lock, then swipe quickly downward while angling the card toward the frame. This is where a thicker, sturdier card may come in handy.
  2. 2 Use a small screwdriver or thin tool on interior doors. This method works on doors with “privacy handles,” locked by pushing a button in the door handle. If you’re locked on the other side, look for a tiny hole on the doorknob. Push an eyeglasses screwdriver, a paper clip hammered flat, or a very small butter knife into this hole. Push it straight through as far as you can, and turn or twist it until it catches a groove and the lock clicks open. Advertisement
  3. 3 Pick the lock, This can be complicated, so you may wish to read the full instructions. To get started, insert the short end of an Allen wrench into the lower edge of the keyhole. Apply a tiny bit of pressure to turn the lock slightly in the direction the key would turn. Keep this pressure as steady as possible, and use an unbent paperclip with a small crook at the end to pick the lock:
    • Scrubbing method: push the paperclip in gently at the lower end of the keyhole, then lift it back and upward. Repeat in a circular motion while increase the pressure on the Allen wrench slightly each time, until you feel the lock shift. When this happens, keep the pressure steady as you repeat the motion, until the door unlocks.
    • Pin by pin method: If you can’t succeed with the scrubbing method, keep the pressure on the Allen wrench slight and steady while you gradually push the paperclip in. When the paperclip makes contact with a pin, try to catch it on the bend and lift it upward until it clicks into place. Repeat with additional pins until the lock turns.
  4. 4 Remove the hinges. Using a standard-sized flat head screwdriver, wedge it between the bottom knuckle and the pin. Tap the handle of the screwdriver in a downward direction with a hammer. Remove the head and pin when they’re loose enough.
    • Repeat this with all hinges. If the pin won’t come out easily, you may have more success forcing it out with a Phillips head screwdriver.
  5. 5 Annihilate the lock with a hammer. There’s a reason this is the last step – it should be your last resort. In most cases, you’d probably rather call a locksmith or a non-emergency number for the local fire station. If you need to leave urgently, bash downward repeatedly until the doorknob or lock breaks away from the door.
  6. Advertisement

  1. 1 Push or pull the door as you turn the key. With many older doors, you need to pressure the door as you fiddle with the key, as the warped door is bending the lock at an awkward angle. Try applying pressure in each direction: up, down, toward you, and away from you. Use as much force as you can without losing your balance once the door opens.
    • If you are using a friend’s key, call and ask him about it. He is likely to know the door’s idiosyncrasies.
  2. 2 Turn the key both directions. There’s no universal standard for which way a key turns to unlock a door. Even if you know which way is “unlock,” turning the key further toward the “locked” direction sometimes causes the lock to unjam. If you can get the key to turn a short distance past the full locked position, rotate it back the other way in a quick, smooth motion and you may overcome the jam.
  3. 3 Lubricate the lock, Unless you plan on replacing the lock, choose a grease-free lubricant such as graphite powder, since oil will jam the lock even more once it dries out. A single, short spray or squeeze directly into the keyhole should be enough; too much lubricant can be counterproductive. You can even spray some WD40.
    • If you’re trapped in a room, use any oil you have available, or rub the key with a graphite pencil tip.
  4. 4 Examine the keys. The problem could be a bent key, or a key with severely damaged teeth. Bending the key back into a flat position will sometimes serve as a temporary fix, if you have a clamp handy. Replace the keys at a hardware store as soon as you can.
  5. 5 Know when to apply force. If you hear a click when the key turns, the door is probably unlocked but jammed, and a few thumps might open it. If the lock is jammed, hitting the lock several times might help after lubrication to help shift the sticky tumblers.
  6. 6 Try other methods. You may have to set aside the key and use the lockpicking methods described in the section below. If that doesn’t work, you may need to call and hire a locksmith.

This answer was written by one of our trained team of researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness. wikiHow Staff Editor Staff Answer Open up the bobby pin so it bends at a 90° angle, and shave off the rubber tip on the straight end with a knife or razor. Insert that end into the keyhole, then bend the pin so it’s flush against the outside of the lock. Make a hook at the end of a second pin to create a tension lever. You’ll need to hold the tension lever in place at the bottom of the keyhole to prevent the pins in the lock from falling back into place while you lift them with the first pin. Turn the lever counterclockwise to open the door.

Article Summary X You can use a credit card to unlock a door that has a spring lock. Make sure to use an old card in case it breaks! Insert the card between the lock and door frame, then bend the card back to force the lock open. For an interior door that has a small hole in the handle, you can use a small screwdriver to unlock it.

  1. Just insert the screwdriver into the small hole and press the button on the inside of the handle with it to unlock the door.
  2. You may need to turn the screwdriver in order for the door to unlock.
  3. To unlock a door with a keyhole, you can pick the lock with 2 bobby pins.
  4. Bend the closed end of one of the bobby pins to form a 90-degree angle.

Bend the second bobby pin into a long, straight pick that bends up at one end. Insert the bent end of the first bobby pin into the bottom of the keyhole and turn it in the direction you’d turn the key in. Maintain pressure on the first bobby pin, then insert the angled end of the second bobby pin into the top of the keyhole.

That allows you to unlock doors without the use of a key. You can use this method during an emergency situation.

This AM, I went out to the car, threw my laptop bag and lunch on the front passenger seat with my keys. Closed the door and walked around to the trunk. Trunk was locked. Turns out so are all 4 doors. I have CA, how did this happen? I checked in the Lock settings in iDrive and the box to lock the doors is unchecked. I could not get in and had to grab my other keys.

I would think though that if the key remains in range, the car would unlock. Maybe not. I’ll have to go out and try, _ 2006 E90 330i (retired) 2009 E90 335i (retired) 2012 E70 X5 50i M Sport, JB Stage 1, 4.6 secs 0-60.2015 VW GTI LP PP

01-09-2012, 12:43 PM # Private First Class Drives: 08 335i Join Date: Dec 2010 Location: Brooklyn, NY The doors will not lock, if the key fob is inside the vehicle (same goes for the trunk). My guess is the button may’ve been pressed but then it’s signal was blocked by the laptop, so the car thought the key fob was not inside the vehicle hence why it locked. It received the lock signal, but the CA didnt recieve the signal that the key was inside vehicle. Quote:

This is true, but only when the vehicle is started. or the keyfob is active present inside the vehicle. (signal not blocked) I figured this out, because when I leave school, i’d have my key inside my bookbag and once or twice it allowed me to open the door, but once I got in and put my bag down, the car wouldnt start because it said the key was missing. (turns out it fell behind the laptop in my bag when i put it down)

This is absolutely not true, even with CA. The fob can be locked in the interior passenger compartment (but not the trunk as you point out) so that if someone is in the car with the fob in their pocket and they want to lock themselves in the car for protection they can. Picture the scenario of you sitting in the vehicle alone at night and an attacker approaches. The key fob is in your pocket-do you really want the car to not be able to lock the doors because the key fob is inside?

This is because there are different antennas for the ignition vs the doors. The key has to be in close proximity to the ignition for it to start (i.e. if it’s in the back seat you’ll get that error about the key missing).

Ok, but i’ve never been able to lock my car from outside with the keyfob still inside. I think i’ve figured this out. The car will NOT lock with the keyfob inside the car if you are trying to lock it from the outside.(hence why i cant lock my key inside) But your right if your inside and you press lock with the keyfob inside it will in fact lock the car. Maybe his bag pressed the button during/after he closed the door.

Correct. The antennas inside and outside the car for detecting the fob work independently. Think about it-if your keyfob was inside the car and it let you lock it standing *outside* the car, then someone standing outside the car could also *unlock* it. So if you were trying to get away from an attacker and locked yourself inside your car (with your fob in your pocket), you want the CA controls outside to ignore the fob inside the car, otherwise the attacker could just lift up on the handle and open the door, defeating the whole purpose of a locked door. The way I’ve seen people get locked out is to leave the fob inside the car and then open the door and while the door is open, press the lock button on either the fob or the center console. Then get out and close the door.

You can as long as there is another key outside. What most likely happened is the lock button on the key got pressed as you tossed things in. CA sensors don’t come into play when you press the buttons on the key. It doesn’t care where the key is because if the buttons are pressed, it’s assuming that you have the key in your possession already. To lock the car with CA, it has to detect a key outside of the car (it doesn’t care about what’s inside the car). If the key is detected in the trunk and you close it without a key outside, it will unlatch the trunk again. If a key is locked inside the car, that key will be disabled for CA functions until the car is unlocked again. _ AW/Terra | ZSP | ZPP | ZCW | iDrive | CA Mods: BC BR coilovers | Blacklines | M-tech rear | | M3 steering wheel | BMW SSK | ZHP shift knob | High-kick CF spoiler | NBT Retrofit M3 front control arms | M3 rear guide rods | Manzo rear toe and camber links | Monroe rear shock mounts | Varrstoen ES1 19×9.5+20 Front, 19×11+25 rear
