Your message is already old so you surely have gotten into your car by now but for future problems, I'll post this anyhow.
Coat hangers may work but if you can find a friendly cop, they often carry 'slim-jims' which is a thin, flat, flexible piece of steel that slides easily past the gasket and has a hook-like opening on one end to catch the mechanism.

SOURCE: Locked my keys in the car.

sharpen end of coat hanger, bend with wire cutters first to be a hook of sorts, then clip at an angle to dig into the plastic of the door lock pull by the glass. You will have to shape the hanger a bit, can go in through a the driver's door if you pull hard on the door (and wedge with something to hold it open a little while you work), or through a rear side window if it can be opened a little.
Worked several times for me. A Slim Jim does too.

find a small wedge such as a small peice of tapered wood or plastic. wedge this in between the top of the door and body by using a small rybber mallet or the palm of your hand with a glove but be careful not to bend the door to far and break the glass (wedge it away from the body no more than about 1.5 inches). just enough to get a wire or coat hanger in there to move freely and easily hit the unlock button. Also watch that you dont tear the roofs rubber weatherstripping when sliding the wedge into place. Good Luck!!!

Cannot open drivers door of my 1996 honda crv automatic using key or from inside. having to climb over from passenger side to drive and get out again.


Sue we arn't talking keyless entrey here .
Then if the key works in the other locks it must be good not worn out .
Witch leaves the lock cylinder on the drivers door or the mechinizam that moves the rods inside of the door to lock and unlock it .
Dose the key feel like it fits ok and the lock turn normally .If so that leaves the mechinizam inside the door .
Its not the end of the world likely something popped off or a little plastic clip broke that holds the rod in place .
The door needs to be taken apart from the inside witch means it needs to be open to repair .Its like a caught 22 can't fix it unless its open but can't open it .
There are ways slim jim or the old coat hanger way if you can roll the window down think about it do a little reserach it can be opened with out distroying 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.

The driver's door lock on my 2004 Honda Odyssey does not respond to the key fob or door lock switch anymore. All other lock actuators and switches work properly. I thought it was the actuator in just...


Has Honda had a look at it? Beside the engine control module
I believe there is a body control module with relays, etc for
functions like door locks, windows, wipers, so it can get
complicated. Best bet is let Honda deal with it.

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.
