Re: locked keys in 1998 jeep classic
Assuming you've checked all the doors and windows......use something that wont scratch the paint and pry the drivers door open enough to get a wire coat hanger in passed the door seal and reach the power door lock switch.....this can be an art form...good luck.....no extra keys or remote's lying around?

If you have no other keys or remote to open the doors you have two choices, call a tow company or locksmith to open the door, write down the car's VIN# (located on the dash just inside the windshield on the left) call the toyota dealer they can make a key using the number, some locksmiths can also do this.
If your vehicle is equipped with an active OnStar account, I would suggest calling OnStar to remotely unlock your vehicle. Otherwise, I would recommend calling either a locksmith or a towing company that offers vehicle lock-out service. AAA motor club also provides this service for members.
Locksmith? Towing company or auto repair shop that provides lockout service??? I don't recommend trying to "jimmie" the door yourself. because if you pull or prod on the wrong thing you could cause a lot of damage that will cost a whole lot more to fix than the service call will cost you.
Call your Jeep dealer and ask them if you give them the VIN if they can order you another one. I know Ford can make any key from 1992 and on if you give them the VIN off your car. I think it will cost something like 35 bucks but if thats your only option, I would go with that. If your feeling crazy you could try to change out the lock cylinder it your steering column but as easy as it is to get another key from the dealership I would go with that. Oh, you can't order a key over the phone either you actually have to go to the dealership and show proof that you own the vehicle and a couple other things. Just call them and they will tell you what they need from you.
