Check your backup key before it is too late.

Pulled a bonehead move and left my V in the accessory mode instead of off.

Came back to a dead car 5 hours later.

Tried to open the door with the backup key and found out that the key tumbler was not connected. This is a big problem.

Roadside assistance sent out a tech from the local dealer who went above and beyond (while laying in a puddle of water) and was able to open hood from underneath.

Looks like the V is going in for its third warranty/recall repair in the last 6 months.

Good thing I have a spare car, as my V seems to like the shop a lot.

Not sure if we are talking about the same thing, but the tech tried to open the door by snaking in a rod and hitting the unlock button, but it did not work. Neither did the door handle.

Thanks for taking the time today to explain to me and my mechanic about how to make my headers work. He (a guy who stuff's late model engines in old rods and is the local dyno genius) has been very impressed with your unending knowledge of V's.
