Question about 2005 Pontiac Sunfire
I have locked my keys inside my 2003 pontiac sunfire, and I have bought a Slim Jim, however, I can not find a diagram of the inside of the door so I know how to unlock it. Please help!!
A slim Jim is a fishing expedition. What you need to do is not worry about diagrams. Realize that the locking mechanism has just a very few parts that interconnect. The key hole where you insert your key, and the lock button that go up and down (or in some cases forward and back) are mechanically connected. It's that connection your fishing for and trying to move. You need to 'fish' between the lock and the button and try and 'hook' that linkage and move it in the dirction that moves your lock button to the unlocked position. If you really need a diagram many of the car part web sites will display a diagram for car parts. I've unlocked alot of doors with the method described and have never seen a diagram for what I'm doing. Good luck!

TAKE THE SLIMJIM AND WHILE SWEEPING UP AND DOWN NEAR THE LOCK CYLINDER, FEEL THE LOCK WITH ONE FINGER UNTIL IT MOVES, THEN YOU WILL KNOW THAT YOU ARE CLOSE TO THE ROD THAT ACTUATES THE CYLINDER. TRY CURVING THE SLIMJIM BOTH WAYS (TOWARDS AND AWAY FROM YOU) ALSO WATCH FOR THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR-LOCK FOR MOVEMENT. HOPE THIS HELPS. KEEP ME INFORMED PLEASE. YOUR PATIENCE WILL BE REWARDED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.
