Can my car be unlocked with someone elses key ?

Asked by Apr 03, 2015 at 09:01 PM about the 2006 Dodge Charger RT

Question type: General

I drive a Dodge Charger r/t 2006, and last night someone broke into my car. My car was locked, the alarm was on, however there has been an issue with my alarm not sounding if the truck is opened (even when alarm in armed). Last night however I saw someone running away from my car as the alarm began to sound, they however has the drivers side door open. So I was wondering if there was a possibility someone with the same make and model could of used their key to open my car. ?

The possibly of that happening is remote, but stranger things happened. There are far more devices out there that make car thieft a lot easier, especially now that computer electronics have gotten involved.

I have a 2011 charger. I'm sure that I locked the door because I heard the horn sound. The next day when I got in the car my glove box and arm rest was open. The crazy thing is no glass was broken. So the only conclusion I can come up with is someone has to have a master key.

Just beacause you heard the the horn honk it is no sign that the doors locked properly, now that your rig has some age on it things start to wear out, it is not uncommon for the lock actuator to get weak enough that it will not pull it into the lock or unlock position even though they click. That is something you need to periodically check and lube the latching mechanisms. There really is no such thing as a Master key, although I have seen what they call jiggle keys that in the right hands make opening car doors fairly easy, and there are lock out sets readily available for any one to purchase.
