  1. I locked my keys in the trunk of my 2016 Hyundai Elantra. I am about to attempt to open the trunk, with an aluminum rod by shoving it in between the door and the frame of the car to lift the lever on the driver side. I know the alarm is activated, so my question is will I still be able to lift the lever from the outside reaching in?
