    Help: my key won't unlock my door (manually)

    I'm on vacation and accidentally left my lights on. I came back to the car the next morning and found that the remote unlock didn't work. The valet told me my lights were left on. I tried to manually unlock the car door by putting the key in, but it won't unlock either. I called Porsche roadside assistance and the service they sent out cannot open the door with a reach tool & wedge. Any suggestions on how to get my car open? Anyone else have problems with the manual door unlock not working? Thanks in advance.

    I don't have a fix for you, but the headlights have kind've irked me since I bought the car. My Toyota Tacoma automatically turns off the headlights when I open the door after killing the ignition. Why hasn't Porsche incorporated something like this?

    For what we pay for these cars, simple things like auto-shutoff headlights should be assumed.

    That is very odd... is there absolutely no release regardless of which way you turn the key? That's very worrying at least from a safety standpoint...And yes, one of many little things that Porsche needs to correct. I still feel strongly that the steering wheel needs to have the cruise control on it as in BMWs/MINIs, etc. I can't for the life of me understand why Porsche tries to simplify the wheel to such a degree that it complicates the overall usage of the instruments/controls.

    Sorry this happened, as I can picture it as a nightmare on vacation. If you could be so kind as to let us know how it got sorted out? I was away for two weeks and the key did open the door? Why a key (mechanical item) would not work seems a bit hard to comprehend, unless one of the fitted blanks ended up being mismatched at the factory(or by a dealer) but still programmed .
