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.

Locked out of my car! Keys (main & spare) won't unlock the doors.

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.

Slim Jim. it's a tool used to open the door. Or you could use something more rustic like a coat hanger...just before you call your locksmith. Don't break the glass...GE

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.

Locked keys in car

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!!!
