I found what looked to be an abandoned vehicle so I stopped to look into it see what I can find, I got in and chickened out immediately and cops showed up as soon as I closed the door on my way out and turns out the vehicle was stolen.
I already gave you advise about getting an attorney. You need help to explain the circumstances and get the prosecutor to understand what happened. HOWEVER, your decision to enter into the vehicle was criminal. You should NOT have done that. Get an attorney

For a felony warrant it is possible. Not guaranteed
You should contact an attorney in that county (or in WA State) and get something started before you get picked up and maybe a court date can be set and an appearance done so that you don't have to START the process in jail. That is my advise.
