this is going to be a funny story so laugh if you want.... First of all i have a 2007 honda civic sedan. Its gotten into a few bumps along the road, not major accidents but just small ones. There was never a problem until i back my friends chevy duramax into the driver side door (yes I did it) besides the fact that this cause a large scratch, it now will not open. (just getting started here) i have been crawling in and out through the passenger side door, so if i leave the lights on it doesnt ever ding, im usually pretty good about not letting this happen but yesterday i left them on, all day. the battery died so my key fob un lock wont work, i cant manually unlock it because of the smooshed in drivers side door (why isnt there a manual lock on both sides??!!) I cant get into the trunk becasuse for some reason the manual lock on the trunk doesnt work and my final attempt was to try to boost the battery with a portable battery pack, however i dont know how to open the hood from the outside. dead battery no problem, breaking into my own car.....? please help

You should have a key hole in your trunk. That will let u get in from the trunk. Just pul the tabs from the seats push them foward and you are in.

yeah i could always call for help, but i ws just hoping someone had a way to get under the hood from the outside then i could charge the battery use the fob and that would be it, seems stupid to pay for someone to come scratch there head at my problem but if it comes down to that i guess.... thank you

i know what your saying but this is honeslty my perdicament, i can tell you anything you need to about the car if that will make a beleiver out of you lol i just really need some assistance here. the key goes into the lock but it wont turn at all and a couple weeks ago the spring in the trunk went to it slams down hard when its closed (may have something to do with why it wont open now) my car was definatley made on a wensday lol

My trunk lock doesn't work either... I think this is a fairly common issue with our cars. If my battery dies I hope my driver's side lock works because I haven't used it... EVER. LOL

no its the same key i always have used the one with the buttons, i used WD40 to loosen it up because it feels like its rusted in the key hole but it wont budge its goes in fine (post WD40) but it still wont turn over if you know what i mean

thanks for the back up! :)
No problem ;)

I would personally try using a coat hanger if the windows are open at all. If they aren't, try getting a slim jim or call a tow truck. I don't think there's any other way to get in, but I wouldn't really know... I've never had to break into a car before (except my dads old Suburban, because he used to forget his keys inside all the time, but that's a little easier than on our cars).
