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?

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.

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.

Keys locked


A coat hanger stretched out fully, you need a flat head screw driver and a rag, place the rag around the flat head screw driver then use it to pry a very small amount on the top of the door, when you pry enough to get the thin coat hanger through, use the hanger to press the unlock button on the inside door.

get in the car anyway possible, you probrally cant open the door from the inside either. Your gonna have to reef the door panel off and reach inside towards the post where the door latches to, and play with it and unlock it by hand. what it is is the spring loaded locking part in the assembly rust out and wears out so that the door wont unlock. I have the same problem with my car i disconnected the power locks in my car cause when people want to roll the window down they accidentally push the lock button. then im stuck entering and exiting out of the passenger door untill i play with it and unlock it. so me and you are gonna have to replace the latch assembly from inside the door.
