Re: [DML] Re: May be buying anoter DMC..

[MODERATOR NOTE:  Reminder -- The DML does not publish instructions for breaking into locked DeLoreans.  I will approve replies to this topic describing tricks for opening *unlocked* DeLoreans, as is the case with this car.  But some of you know tricks that will open both locked and unlocked DeLoreans, and if you submit them I will reject them.  I ask those who know such tips to send them directly to Mr. Levy by private email.  - Mike Substelny, DML moderator of the week]

The car has no power, but I can get in the engine

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think this will
work.  I can move box locks with the key, so I don't
see how having the solenoids operational will help.
