Unfortunately, it’s common to lose or misplace your four-wheeler key. Luckily, there are a few tricks you can use to start your vehicle without a key.
In this article, I’ll be sharing some easy tips and tricks that will help you start your four-wheeler without a key.
Before we begin, it’s important to note that starting a four-wheeler without a key is illegal in most states, and if you’re caught doing it, you could face fines or even jail time.
Always contact a professional mechanic or locksmith to handle this for you. With that being said, let’s get started!
1. Checking for a Spare Key
The first thing you should do is check if you have a spare key. Most people forget that they might have an extra key lying around somewhere. Look in your toolbox, storage compartments, or any other safe location you might have kept a spare key. If you’re lucky enough to find one, problem solved!
2. Using a Screwdriver
If you don’t have a spare key, you can still start your four-wheeler by using a screwdriver. For this method, you’ll need to remove the ignition switch cover. Insert the screwdriver into the ignition switch, and try to turn it just as you would with a key. If the screwdriver is small enough, it should fit right into the keyhole. If it’s too big, try filing down the edges until it fits.
3. Using a Flathead Screwdriver
Another option is to use a flathead screwdriver. This method is similar to using a regular screwdriver, but instead of inserting it into the ignition switch, you’ll need to remove the fuel cap. You’ll notice a small slot on the fuel cap, which is where the flathead screwdriver goes. Turn the screwdriver to the ON position, and you should hear the engine revving up.
4. Using a Pliers
If you don’t have a screwdriver, you can also use a pair of pliers to start your four-wheeler. This method requires more patience and skill than the previous ones. You’ll need to locate the wires that connect to the ignition and cut them. Once you’ve cut the wires, strip the ends and twist them together. Use the pliers to turn the ignition switch on, and your four-wheeler should start.
5. Using a Drill
This last method is a bit more challenging, and it requires you to have a drill. Firstly, you’ll need to remove the ignition switch cover. Then, you’ll need to drill a hole into the keyhole until it’s large enough to fit the drill bit. Once this is done, insert the drill bit into the keyhole and turn it on. The engine should start.
Starting a four-wheeler without a key can be an easy task if you know what to do. Remember, always seek professional help before attempting any of these methods as they might void your warranty or cause further damage to your vehicle. Lastly, keep in mind that starting a four-wheeler without a key is illegal and could result in severe consequences. Stay safe, and enjoy your ride!
