Interior problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 156, 00 miles

I locked my keys in the trunk of my car. My car doors were locked and I paniced because I was about to leave to go out of town. I wasn't thinking and I tried using a screwdriver to get my door/trunk unlocked. Now, I can put the key in the passenger & trunk lock but it won't turn. I think I messed the lock up. When I put the screwdriver in the passenger lock I did push it in kinda hard. Do I need to get my locks replaced or do you think it could be repaired? Is it very expensive to replace? Thank you!

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi lilrascal0401,

You definitely have damaged the key cylinders by forcing them.

You can try the locksmith to see if they can repair the locks.

Replacing the locks would entail a different key and with 2 new locks, gonna be 3 keys unless you get the locksmith to rematch the new cylinders into one.

Sorry I am not able to assist on the costing. I woud suggest checking at your local parts outlet.
