The way my wagon R behaves.
Car switched on, auto lock engages after a couple of seconds.
Engine switches off, auto lock disengages.
If the car is on, I guess if we manage to switch her off without disconnecting the battery the doors would unlock.
But how do we switch it off.
Option 1:
blocking the exhaust.
am not sure if the car would like this.
I mean, if I was running and someone tries to stop me from exhaling....

Option 2:
Cut the fuel supply
but no idea how to do this.

Any hints/ pointers on how to switch off the engine without disconnecting battery?

My remote locks locks automatically only after a 20 sec delay when you start the car or turn on to the ignition mode before cranking the engine.

Incase one of the doors is opened in that 20 sec delay or if the car has been started with the door open, the remote does not lock. So I can close the door even after I have switched on the car.

Sometimes going a bit off the way will take care of these ultra-modern tech security checkmates. Will also save money and time.

My OHC has a Xenos firewall 350 with active / autolock after 30 secs of inactivity with all doors closed.

Solution: I always carry the 2nd remote in my trouser pocket!!!
May sound silly, but this DID save me twice from a similar situation. YES.

Unless until you forget your trouser inside the car, after a backseat brawl , you will not have to break your own car's glasses after a freak mistake.

Always used to keep a spare key in my wallet --- but then there was no chips in the key, and a duplicate was quite flat with no plastic top. Used to keep one in my desk drawer too!

And this was all due to having locked myself out with the key inside a couple of times: didn't even have central locking then <Blush>

The scale wala method wont work on the latest cars. At least not on Verna it has all locks covered with plastic inside the door.
Only solution to open such cars is to remove the number plate behind which there;s a lever inside. Pulling that lever will open the boot.
After that u'll have to remove the speakers or the brake light to make enough space for putting the hand in and pushing the rear seats down.. I guess after that anyone can open the doors....

Arrow UPDATE on the broken glass!

Had to do a lot of running around to find the quarter glass today!
Before I explain that, let me tell you that the beading also broke with the glass.

Called Windshield experts first to get the estimates, was told it will cost 3500-3600 for the complete thing (glass+beading+fitting)

Called Regent to find out that they did not have this in stock and they would have to order from Gujarat.

Called our sources (authorised dealers) in Kashmere Gate, got to know that the glass is available for Rs 650, fitting will be max Rs 200. Problem was that there was no beading with the glass. They did have the desi jugaad to rectify that but my sister insisted she wasn't interested in that.

Made too many calls but could not locate anyone who could source the beading alone. Windshield experts refused, Regent refused, sources refused.

Finally called Autovikas, who said the glass is 3200 + taxes extra so it will be 3600. Got there, got it fixed in 15 minutes and got the whole car vacuum cleaned. Luckily, dad knows the GM in GM so paid 3200 in total.

Ultimately, it was TOO MUCH MONEY FOR A STUPID MISTAKE

At least safer than cars which can be opened with a scale within 5 mins.

Ah, that's rocket science. Betwenn the gap in the bonnet and body, I could see the steel wire that disengages the lock of the bonnet. Since the Safari was at the tyre shop, I took a long screwdriver from him and and tried pushing the steel wire. Took some effort and time and finally the lock snapped opem. In the process, the steel wire got twisted and deformed. Got it changed immediately.

Smile might just work for you...

This is something came to me in forwarded messages. and it does worked for my friend. give it shot and let me know

Subject: Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote
keys This may come in handy someday.
Good reason to own a cell phone
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call
someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person atyour home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on theirend. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys toyou. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if youcan reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk)
Editor's Note: *It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over
a cell phone

Yes this works, I have tried and tested this many times on different cars!

But unluckily the spare remote for the optra was at my BIL's place and there was no one there to do this for us.
