Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in the auto repair business with my own shops since 1975 and also teachautomotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going todirect you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.If you do not have a key fob or another key, your only choice is hiring a locksmith. Any other way would require doing damage to the vehicle. If you can't even access the cab of the car, you can always call the police to open the drivers door for you. That worked for me last year.Thanks, Ron

Csn you help me?

The locksmith can't figure it out?
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 1 year ago.
Okay, if he can't open your trunk then the locking mechanism must be broken and the only other access would be through the back seat being dismantled from a shop. I'm sorry this happened to you and hope it doesn't affect my rating.Thanks again, Ron
