Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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!

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)

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.
