    I suppose she could but.... once it's unlocked she might be able to find a replacement cylinder which would come with keys.

    Lost my keys( I think)

    The key in Taylor's photo appears to be a very cheap one which means the lock is probably just as cheap. Watch a few videos on lock picking (it's easier than most people think) and I bet you'll have it unlocked in no time.

    Battery winter care

    Check the charge occasionally... every time you turn the calendar to a new month is probably overkill. If the battery still has, roughly, 40 to 75% charge you should be okay.

    How many amps does your battery deliver?

    I'm not sure we straightened anything out. According to the manual I found online, the display should be showing "wh" for the amount of watts going to the motor, not "ah" for amps. If it was me I'd be inclined to try and reset the display. From this page...
