Ok this is a do-it-yourself job. I've opened several cars and trucks this way. It will take a while so the important thing is to be patient. Even if your car is running, you will be able to unlock your car before you run out of gas. I locked my keys in my impala for the first time today and it took me 45 min to open it.
First you will need a crow bar or a flathead screwdriver. Crow bar works best. You just need anything to wedge into the top corner of either your driver or passenger door. Make sure you wrap the bar/screwdriver with a t-shirt or something similar. This will cause less damage to your car. Wether it's the paint or body you are worried about. Then you need a hanger. These are the two easiest things to get a hold of anywhere you are. So unbend the hanger to its full extent without cutting any of it off. Otherwise you will find yourself short of reaching the inside lock. At the end of the hanger, form a small hook about an inch long. The way it works is, you have to pry open either door from its corner. Then stick the hanger with the hook in first. Manuever the hanger so that your hook lays on the top of the inside door handle. This will get you closer to the manual lock. Once you have achieve this, you must carefully pull back your hanger, hooking the inside manual lock. With just enough pressure pulling back you will be able to unlock your door and open it from the outside. At which point your alarm will go off. So be ready to grab your keys and turn the alarm off. You dont wanna look like a car thief. Which in actuality, thats the thing most people think and worry about when they face this situation. And well, not to mention feeling pretty stupid too. Good Luck! And remember, persistence works and patience is a virtue!
