It is possible however, you must know exactly where the lock mechanism is and be careful not to disconnect any door lock actuators or wiring. Most unlocking companies use a long metal rod with a hook on the end and enter where the door/window frame meet the rubber moulding at the top of the door. You can pull the top of the door back slightly and insert a wedge carefully so as not damage the rubber moulding and hold the door slightly ajar. A unfolded wire coat hanger can then be inserted and fished around to touch the power unlock button.

SOURCE: locked my keys inside, can't find a door diagram online

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!

SOURCE: I used a slim jim and now my door won't open from the outside.

Open up the door panel and put the control rod back on. that often happens when getting in that way...still cheaper than a locksmith or a window!! (clip is probably in the bottom of the door)

SOURCE: keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock

The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

Locked my keys in the car but the trunk is open


if they do fold down reach in with a coathanger to reach the releases.. if not.. they bolt in and cant be removed from the trunk side as they were installed from the inside.. but a slim jim can open the car.. call law enforcement and they will come by and open it for you..especially if there is an issue like your child locked inside(or your dog)..

I locked my keys inside my car how can i open it


The easiest way to gain access to your car would be to call the Police and ask them to open your door. They, if asked, should assist you with the aide of a Slim-Jim. The other option is to make your own Slim-Jim and open you door look by yourself.

I locked my keys inside my lincoln aviator the battery is dead how to get open door


On the Holiday weekend this can be tuff. If you can find a Lincoln dealer open, see if they can run the VIN# and cut a new key.

Call the Police. They have Slim-Jims and can sometimes open a door. Your advantage-This is a Holiday weekend and stuff is closed.

Your Auto Policy or Road Insurance. A locksmith is covered in the Premium Policies or Autoclub. The Locksmiths have all the keys and can trial and error fit the lock.

IS THERE ANY TO GET THE TRUNK OPEN FROM THE COCKPIT OF THE CAR.KEYS AND REMOTE ARE LOCKED IN TRUNK


Remove back of back seat. You can get the keys then, or there should be a trunk lid release at the lock.

If you can't get into the car because it's locked, you'll need a Slim-Jim like device to get the door open.

try to put WD 40 in the key hole. If you have a key- less button on your key ring and the battery is dead on that one and you have a spare you can use your cell phone to call someone with spare and hold the phone next to the car and have them push unlock and it will unlock it. this might sound strange but it does work. if you don't have a key-less button then use a slim jim. you have to come in from the rear of the lock.you just have to feel the handle to make sure you are getting close to the lock.
