Question about 1998 Mazda Protege
My car is locked with the key inside I have a slim ji but do not know how to us it
A 'Slim Jim' will rarely work on cars newer than 1980 or so. You need to gently pry the car door open and insert a devise that pumps air into a small balloon like container that is place between the door and the body of the car. This will open a gap where you can either unlock the car or try to retrieve the keys with a hook-like devise such as a wire hanger.
This device is common piece of equipment that tow trucks carry with them so I would suggest you let them do it because the price of the device is far greater than a "lock out" call to a towing company.
