    New guy, locked out of my fist

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello everyone. Long time lurker, newly registered user. First of all, not sure if this is the right spot to post this problem, but I'm sure the mods will move it if need be.
    I bought a 2015 fist, new from the dealer. My plan is to wait until the warranty runs out then throw the cobb catalog at it.
    Over Easter weekend I'm almost positive I left my keys and fob in the center console. I walked into the house and just grabbed the spare fob to lock it, thinking I'll just get my keys out in the morning. Fast forward to this morning and I'm still using the spare fob thinking I'll just grab the keys when I think about it later. Well, sure enough my spare fob seems to have disappeared. I took my beater to work and spent the evening tearing the house apart, looking for the fob. No go. So now I'm thinking I'll try to jimmy the door open enough to slip a rigid piece of aluminium flat bar (bent to the correct angle) into the car and hit the unlock but on on the dash, jump in, grab my fob and keys, and hit the unlock button to avoid the alarm. I can't try it tonight. It's too late and my neighbors suck. But what if I'm wrong and my fob and keys aren't in the center console? Will the alarm go off for long? Will the dash button even work? I have some important papers for work sitting on the passenger seat and I kind of need them, so I have to get in. I emailed FoMoCo. They said call the dealership. I called the dealership. They said my only option was to have the car towed there and they would have to program TWO new fobs at a cost of $180 a pop. $360 plus towing fees plus tax is not something I want to pay for my stupidity. So, am I screwed? I realize breaking into a car is a slightly taboo issue on these forums, but I'm at my wits end. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Just jimmy the door. If your keys aren't in your car just pop the hood and disconnect the battery.

    If the key is in the car...

    Hold down the button on the doorhandle for about 5 seconds, lift the doorhandle hold 5 seconds, let go of the button, return doorhandle to normal placement.

    Press button again.

    If that doesnt work, open the rear hatch instead, its likely unlocked if the key is inside, just grab the release button.

    No go on all exterior buttons. I wedged the door open a bit and hit the interior lock/unlock button on the dash. Nothing happened. I'm screwed.

    Won't help here, but is there any reason to keep the back-up key in the fob? Why not hide it out under the car, or in your wallet or something.

    Hey p, have you called locksmiths, tow companies etc, to see if anyone would make a house call to slim-jim the door lock?

    No one wants to touch it. They just keep saying call the dealer. Good idea on the key. Hindsight...20/20...Definitely stashing one once I'm out of this situation.

    I would try going to the dealer to see if they can cut you a key. Most of the time you just need to show proof of ownership (registration, insurance, etc). It will be cheaper than a fob and should be less than $100.

    Call Ford Roadside Assistance and tell them you left your keys in the car. Its a free service as long as your car is still under warranty.
    US: 1-800-241-3673
    Canada: 1-800-665-2006

    When you call, they'll ask for your:
    • Current location
    • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
    • Vehicle make & model
    • Vehicle color
    • License plate number

    If the alarm goes off after they get the door open then pop the hood and disconnect the battery.

    I completely forgot about Roadside Assistance. I'm surprised the Ford Rep I chatted with didn't suggest it. I'll give them a call in the morning. Thanks!!
