Locked Out! How?

Mon Dec 28, 2020 4:29 pm


My wife just called and claims to be locked out of our 2015 FFE with the keyfob in her purse which is in the car. How is this possible? My understanding is that the car will not lock with the keyfob inside.

If the keyfob is truly inside, is there some magical combination of door handle pulls and heel clicks that will open the car?

Likely the fob is sufficiently shielded by being in the purse such that the car cannot detect the signal to know that he fob is in the car. If the fob battery is weak that would only make it easier or the car not to know the fob is inside.

You need a key or some B&E skills to get in without a key.
