How to prevent getting locked out of your vehicle in  Lancaster: 

While there is no foolproof way to avoid getting locked out of your car,  there are some tips and tricks that can help minimise the chances.


Here are 3 tips to prevent lockouts… 


Always keep your vehicle keys on you


The first step to prevent getting locked out is to not leave they keys in the  car. But that’s easier said than done. Especially if you’re stressed or have  a lot on your mind. But you can minimise your chances by creating a habit of always putting your keys in your pocket or purse as soon as you turn  the engine off. Also, when you exit the vehicle, before you shut the door,  do a quick pat down to check that you have the keys with you. 

Keep a spare key handy

You always want to have a spare key within easy access. Make a mental note of where you’ve placed the spare keys that came with your car. Smart  places to put your spare car keys include: 


- At home in a safe and easily accessible spot 

- On your person – on a seperate key chain, in your purse, or in your wallet hidden somewhere on your vehicle in a magnetic lock box

- Whatever you do, don’t keep the spare key in the glove compartment.

Regularly replace the key fob battery 

Most modern vehicles use a key fob to lock and unlock. But sometimes  the key fob doesn’t respond. In cases such as this, check and make sure  the key for battery isn’t dead. The solution might be as simple as replacing  the battery.
