Can I start my car with screwdriver instead of key?
I don't have a key anymore to start my car, and I was told to either hotwire it, or remove the ignition switch lock cyl. But is it possible to just jam a screwdriver in the keyhole, and turn hard, and break ree the steering wheel, and start the car?? I can't get a new key made because the whole steering column was purchased from a salvage yard, so it does not match my VIN. How hard would I have to turn the screwdriver to start the car ( if it is indeed possible to start the car this way). Thanks.
i stole a '88 300ZX one time with a screwdriver....get in the car with a flat-head driver and a hammer...stick the driver in there and tap on the handle with the hammer...try to start it after awhile, maybe it will work...it sure did on the 300ZX, but the MX6 is probably much more advanced that this old Z was (at least now you can jack a 300ZX )
just for the record...I GAVE THE CAR BACK, lol....it was my uncles and he was drunk *and about to start driving* so i just moved it to the other side of the parking lot where he wouldnt see it...i told him someone stole it
aight what you wanna do is get a flat head screwdriver and beat it into the key hole kick it in hammer it whatever works when its half way in or so try turning it if that dont work
start movin the screwdriver all around use alot of force dont take it e-z kick it from side to side beat the $hit out of it till the ignition comes out when thats done try the above step again it should be alot easyer since u can see exactly whats going on
this worked on alot of doge/chrysler cars it should work on the 6 with no problems not like u dealing with a beamer or benz
I'd be wondering why your "salvage yard" can't relate a VIN to this steering column. It would seem that almost all of them could do this.
