As soon as you finish laughing, an emergency.

Hi all,
My son is 450 miles away, tried to change the battery himself (OK so far). He took out the old one in an AUtoZone parking lot, and thoughtfully closed the trunk while going back into the store to get the new one, and now he can't open anything.
If you have the solution, quick call me?
Much thanks,

Nevermind! OK, false alarm. He called back saying the mechanical key does in fact work. It was just being finicky for a bit, never having been needed till today.

Great things worked out. For what it's worth, have had zero luck with Auto Zone batteries and perchance their quality has improved. Plus, it was the entry level (red top??) battery and one went kaput just before and the other just after the two year warranty ended. The second battery quit literally days after the warranty period ended and the clerk appeared to have a sorry not sorry facial demeanor...ugh.
