I did try unlocking it and locking it with the key but not all combo's
you listed. I will also try the button thing although there is no way
to pull that puppy up.
I will have to compare the door handle play/travel as well.
Of course I just let my AAA run out as I had it with their hour long
transaction to buy/sell a car. I get it done at the notary in 5 minutes
I do know a locksmith that might be able to get it open for me. I am
just afraid of bitching up the rubber or paint.
Stay tuned at 4:30 EST when I get home from work to start round three in
this great challenge.
praying the guy in the Neon does not see me crawling over from the
passenger side to start/drive my car...
