Do you still have your OEM key and alarm remote control (if equipped)? If you're sure they work, open your hood and disconnect your battery for 10 minutes, connect it again and proceed to close all doors/hood as usual, arm & desarm the alarm and proceed to open the car with your key and turn it on. Did this help??

Locked my keys in my 1998 mazda protege and i need to know how to use a slim jim


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.

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.

How can i slim jim the door? (locked my keys


with out the right tools it will be verry hard also you can break your glass or knock a lock rod off.

THE best way to do this is if you have power locks find somthing you can use as a wedge EXAMPLE;screw driver.place the wedge between the dood and the car you may have to pry it open a little. now get a coat hanger and push the power lock button.

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.
