There are several ways to get your car into neutral without a key. All of them involve some form of remote control, and all have their advantages and disadvantages.
If you’re in a rush, you can start the car using the remote starter feature on your keyless entry system. To do this, press and hold the lock button on your key fob for at least three seconds until you see the lights flash on your dashboard. The light will continue to flash until you release the button or until the engine starts running. Once it starts running, let go of the button and listen for a beep from inside the vehicle. This is a signal that it’s safe to drive away.
If you can’t find your keys or don’t have them with you, there are still other options available to help get you moving again. If your car has a manual transmission, shifting into neutral should allow you enough time to get out of any sticky situations or dangerous situations where it might otherwise stall out completely. You’ll also be able to move forward and backwards without having to worry about stalling out once more when moving up hills or over steep inclines — which can happen if you try driving with no power steering in place at all!
