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.

i had same problem with a mitsubishi fto , tried the coat hanger thing got the passengers door unlocked but it still wouldnt open, rang the automobile association, he came along and did the same as i did to passengers door , to the drivers door and presto he was in,so maybe the drivers door has the master control, or ring a dealer for that make and model they might be able to put you on the right path.
Call a locksmith. Any break-in tricks are dangerous as they could damage your vehicle (that's why it's called a break-in).
If you insist, you could potentially slip a wire coat-hanger under the exterior window molding, between the door and the window to disengage the door lock. But, this might be hard to do if you don't have a clothes hanger with you.
no way with any code or anything what you do is to wind the rear window down with a coat hanger and a thin metal rod ,manual windows on rear only will this work or try pulling the internal door handle levers with a coat hanger
I had to do this alot for students at the school. If u have a metal coat hanger bent it so its long and go to the top right corner of the door and pray it open and use a rap or somthing so u dont scratch it most of the time u can get enough room to fish the hanger though and press the unlock button. it the hanger is to weak to do it use a steel break line for a car and bent it so u can get it in. thats the way iv always done it hope i helped
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!!!
