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.

    hmmm....maybe my door was open a little already. Slim jim is handy, hide it under the van with breadclip wires somewhere so you'll always have it there. Or ALWAYS carry an extra key in wallet.


    I slid my coat hanger around the edge of the glass a couple times....pulling back rubber weatherstrip, up near the top. Again the key to success with a coat hanger is to clip the end into a sharp point.

I have a 1988 cadillac elderado and my keys are in the trunk... My car doors are locked as well. How can I get them out without calling a lock Smith?

Does your car door locks have small lift up knobs on interior doors? You would push down to our ck car. If you do then get a metal coat hanger and small wood wedge.
then untwist coat hanger end create a loop on end so you think it would slide around door lock.
gently pull top of door away from body and of car see if you can put wedge in to hold door slightly. The goal is to insert coat hanger down so you can maneuver over lock, once you do pull up.
you should bend coat hanger thinking of how you will slide into car and long enough to turn and twist until you unlock.
metal coat hangers can be obtained at a dry cleaners.

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.

Locked keys in escalade

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.

1994 xj6 has a blocked drain in the fuel filler cavity area. I can run a wire coat hanger down the drain - but I feel resistance after about 18" of the coat hanger has been inserted and can't break...

You are using too thick of a wire with a coat hanger. I use machinists wire to unblock the drain hole. The tube emerges under the car by the left rear wheel. This is a common problem and leads to water in the tank if not cleared on a regular basis.

Tailpipe hanging

Sounds like a "U" clamp let go or a hanger. If it's a U clamp, they are easy enough to install, surrounding the tail pipe with the clamp and screwing the bolts on both sides. If it's a hanger, you can temporarily secure the tailpipe with a coat hanger. Only other reason would be a break in the weld from mid pip to tail pipe. You would definitely hear this if that were the case and would need to have it re-welded.
