Question about 1998 Pontiac Firebird

1992 Firebird- Locked the keys inside!

I accidentally locked my keys in my car. I attempted to put a hanger through the window and push the unlock button, no luck. I attempted to use a slim jim to pry the lock but I have no idea where to push or pull! I have never seen inside the door panal so I'm not sure what to do. Does anyone have a diagram of the inside of the door panal on a 1992 Pontiac Firebird??? Or do you have any other suggestions besides a slim jim or hanger?

The key wont turn in the door lock of my 2004 Ford Escape and the electronic locking mechanism doesn't work unless the key is in the ignitionl. How can I get into my car?


It's not going to seem very helpful, but the only way that you'll be able to take care of this is to manipulate the lock from the inside. This is, of course, assuming your keys are stuck inside your car. If not, attempt unlocking the door by physically using your keys.

If your keys are locked in your vehicle, use the AAA wedge on the door and attempt to retrieve the keys -- they physically will be able to manipulate the lock. If the keys are gone, you could attempt wedging the door open and using a metal or plastic bar or plate to bypass the lock on the door itself (passing it between the door closing mechanism and the frame of the vehicle). If you're desperate, and don't have the keys anyways, it may just be time to break a window and do things the old fashioned way.

Keys locked in trunk


Depending on the vehicle the rear seats may be able to come down, of course the the doors would need to be unlocked though. If the doors are locked as well all you need is a coat hanger and a wooden shim to unlock the door.

2012 Toyota Camry SE - Key locked in trunk with car is locked. Is there a way to get in without locksmith?


you can 'fish' a coat hanger through the door seal to press the unlock button on the armrest, or slide down along window into the door's body to attempt to manually work the locking mechanism... a slim-jim is helpful here but can be done w/ coat hanger. WARNING!: this may damage your paint or the door seal or both, or the window seal.... once in the main body of the car...trip the lever

My keys are locked inside how should I open


Instructions

Straighten out the metal coat hanger and bend one end of the hanger into a hook shape. Make the hook about one inch.

Place the end of the metal coat hanger with the hook on it between the window and the frame. Place the hanger 1/2 an inch behind the door handle toward the the edge of the door closest to the rear door.

Push the hanger down about two feet into the door frame. Pull up on the hanger until you feel the hook catch onto the metal arm inside the door frame that controls the lock. You may have to try a few times before the hook catches the metal arm.

Pull up on the hanger once the hook has connected to the metal arm until the door lock unlocks. The lock handle on the inside of the car will move once you have connected the hook to the metal arm that controls the door lock.

Locked keys in car.need picture of inside of the door to see how to open it with a coat hanger


BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL!! pull top of door out with your fingers and wedge something in the gap. doesnt have to be a huge gap just enough to get a hanger or whatever you choose to use. if it has lock button you can directly push with hanger or whatever. if no button you can bend a hook on hanger and snag door lock and pull open. good luck!! BE CAREFUL, DO NOT PULL DOOR TO FAR. JUST ENOUGH AS NEEDED. let me know how it goes!!!
