SOURCE: locked my keys inside, can't find a door diagram online

A slim Jim is a fishing expedition. What you need to do is not worry about diagrams. Realize that the locking mechanism has just a very few parts that interconnect. The key hole where you insert your key, and the lock button that go up and down (or in some cases forward and back) are mechanically connected. It's that connection your fishing for and trying to move. You need to 'fish' between the lock and the button and try and 'hook' that linkage and move it in the dirction that moves your lock button to the unlocked position. If you really need a diagram many of the car part web sites will display a diagram for car parts. I've unlocked alot of doors with the method described and have never seen a diagram for what I'm doing. Good luck!

How do I unlock my Toyota Camry without the keys


Hi Tony:
There are several options:
1) See if there is a way to insert a piece of wire (clothes hangar) to be able to manually unlock it form the inside.
2) See if a local Auto Towing company has someone who can unlock it. Slim Jim?
3) If the VIN number is visible through the windshield, call your local Toyota Dealer and see if they can give you the key code, then get the local lock shop to cut you a key
4) Last resort. You could always break a window.

Keys are locked in car and dont want to pay for aaa. I have slim jim how do I unlock door with it?


A lot of newer cars can't be opened with a slim jim anymore. A good kit uses a small bag that inflates with air to allow a long rod to unlock (electric door locks) These work much better.

Locked keys in toyota 4 runner. have slim jim wanted picture of door schmatic to find proper linkage to jimmie.


A typical slim jim wont do the trick for you.

You need special tools to do the trick. Most tow truck drivers have them.

Locked keys in 2007 Toyota Yaris; manual locks; how do ya unlock the door lock


Three possibilities:
1. Call a service that can unlock your car (there are a BUNCH of these)
2. Buy a slim jim and unlock the car with that
3. Go to the dealer with the title to your car, or some proof of ownership, and they can cut you a new key.

Hope this was a little help,
