So what if, after being ordered to exit the vehicle, the kid had locked the doors and left his keys in the ignition? Would they have broken his window to effect the search based on Fido's nose; which in this case proved to be quite fallible?

In such a case, would they be required to attain a warrant?

What if the person had done as above but has an external keypad on the door. Can the police order them to enter the code to open the doors? Can one refuse? Knowing the code, but stating you don't, would be taken as providing false information to a police officer -- an arrestable offense.
