I locked keys in car, still in the ignition of my 2010 Chevy Malibu. Where should I place the slim Jim to unlock door.


Best bet is to call a lock smith and have him get in the car for you. Later model cars are designed to prevent slim jim from working in mast cases. The cost of the locksmith will be small compared to the possible damage and having to replace broken window, linkage or wiring in the door.

Keys are locked in car and dont want to pay for aaa. I have slim jim how do I unlock door with it?


A lot of newer cars can't be opened with a slim jim anymore. A good kit uses a small bag that inflates with air to allow a long rod to unlock (electric door locks) These work much better.

A typical slim jim wont do the trick for you.

You need special tools to do the trick. Most tow truck drivers have them.

LOCKED KEYS IN X5 CAN WE SLIM JIM IT??


Yes, you can slim jim it. Just know that when trying this you can also do very expensive damage to the inner door components. Here is a tip. If the car is running or if you have needed medication locked inside the fire dept. will unlock it for free. They should have a all vehicle unlock tool.
