    So its a brisk 5 degrees out this morning. So I decide to start my truck and let it warm up while I am getting ready, good Idea... Until I get out to my truck and its locked...while its running so i called AAA to come unlock it! Felt pretty stupid calling into work over this but I guess shit happens! For some reason I thought that my truck wouldn't do this?

    I had one of those magnetic key holders years ago. I would check it semi regularly. But the first time I needed it the thing had fallen off.
    I keep a spare wire tied in a hidden spot so I can get to it when I need it. I hope I never need it.

    I'm surprised it locked. My '99 wouldn't lock when it was running. Used to drive me nuts when I wanted it to.

    I've had a few of those magnetic key holders and they keep felling off. And I am real suprised that it did that its never done that before but now I have a key in my wallet. It was actually -8 this morning so maybe the cold caused the truck to do weird things but who knows just have to make sure I have a spare (not in the truck) from now on.

    I got a magnetic key holder with a keyring hole in one end and ziptied the holder to my frame so that I don't have to cut the zip tie loose if I ever get locked out.

    So I even tried it again last night when I got home and the doors will not lock with one open and the truck running:confused: Now I have a spare key hidden and I am just assuming that the cold weather was messing with my truck...
