Question about 1998 Pontiac Firebird
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 button pulls up not down to open,take two big screwdrivers and a wooden wedge and pry back top of door and drop wedge in to hold door frame back then use coat hanger with a small loop on the end to lift the button up.in the car rental game i could open a car within 30secs honest

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.
