Question about Cars & Trucks
If you have full coverage on your Car Insurance call them. The Autoclubs and many car insurers provide Locksmith service for the members.
You may be able to get the Police or a Tow truck Driver to use a slim-jim to get into the vehicle. You do not want to damage the Door or Window seals over this incident.
If someone has a second set of keys, all you need is the remote.

Get a buddy to help you and get a wire hanger.
Un-twist the hanger and straighten it out.
Depending on the lock type, you'll have to shape one end of the wire (if the car has power locks that work without the car running, you don't need to bend the wire at all.) If the manual lock is one that you pull up, then twist the end of the wire into a kind of loop. If its one that you pull out, then a hook shape is more appropriate.
Then its time to go fishing. Get your buddy to pull out on the door, then you slide the hanger wire down into the crack between the door and the roof where its far enough away from the lock that it flexes outward. From there, play the surgeon and try to either press the unlock button, or activate the manual lock.
This method can take a while, and I've done it with my trucks before with hit and miss success.
That's all I got, hope it helps.

If the coathanger thing doesnt work, go get a slimjim loaner tool from the parts store or if you are comfortable with them, law enforcement carrys the same tool in some cars, and they will usually unlock the car for free..good luck..

you could go to an auto parts store and they can reset it for you, or you could pull your battery cables off the battery and hold them together for about 10 sec. that will clear any codes.

30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted, be glad to help.

THE POWER STEERING PUMP PULLEY --- ARRGGH...Not a problem.
The power steering pump is held by two bolts. Use a socket and remove the top bolt and loosen the bottom bolt. Be careful not to completely remove the bottom bolt. The PS pump will loosen up enough so that you can push it towards the firewall and you will JUST have enough room to remove the waterpump bolts. Its tight but it will squeeze out.

kind of tricky, took me an hour to get it figured out, but you got to opend the trunk and take out the 10 or so 10mm nuts sticking out of the backside of the lid, then the whole solid piece where the lights are on the back will slide off, then you can change the bulbs above the license plate and put it all back together
