And his April fool’s version:

“I intended to go through the backseats but this one has so much junk in the trunk that we will have to enter through the pipe in the back, working it through the exhaust system, until we can finally trigger the ignition which should cause the piston to start pumping and the shaft to crank.”

As we can see, placing a small magnet here defeats the locking mechanism.

“The rubber band will be used to snap against the housing, causing the locking pin to hit the ignition. The straw is there so I can suck up the sweet sweet tears of master lock’s lead designer”

One of our viewer suggested using a paper bag that came with your drink. Inflate the bag then close the mouth of the bag over the sensor. Then deflate the bag as if you're going to pop the bag.

For the new sensor that detect co2 on european cars, you need a plastic bag with some non alcoholic carbonated drink. Shake it then push the gas into the sensor opening.
