Emergency: locked out of car, hood open any options?

My battery was dead and the pin on the door came up half way but i was still able to get in. I jumped the car then shut the door to close the hood and now the door wont open again but hood is open... The "pin" on the door sill is like halfway up, but not to the point where the door will open from the outside.

No spare key, any thoughts before I try to call AAA?

Hood open, car running, keys in ignition, pin halfway up.

Figure this one out

pee in the intake. This should stop your engine from running and wasting so much gas.

How about unhooking the positive cable at the right rear of the engine compartment. If that's the main battery cable to the ignition system it should kill the car at least.....then you can figure out how to get it unlocked.

Scott, Did you learn the tennis ball trick when you worked as a AAA employee, Repro man or in prison?

There you go. You pay for it so you might as well use it.

Even if that was true, the only things you've seen in here are common knowledge and something that should not work. Break glass, AAA and tennis ball.

how about putting your hand in the fan , should take your mind off things and ambulance personel will have your car open(since it needs to be moved) when you come too

How about the trunk ? it should open...(if you have fold down seats)
