The jimmy can be put into the space between the window and the door, but takes some experience and knowledge of where the levers are to pull or push on, without damaging stuff in the door.

Maybe call AAA if you're a member to have them unlock the door (free) as part of the membership.

The battery died in my jimmy and the key locked in, not knowing that it would do this i tried to force it back to get the key out. after charging the battery i got the key out now when i put the key in in...

The key being stuck is a physical problem and not a result of the battery going dead, [ but may be the other way arround ]. You can try to lube the lock cylinder with a quick shot of WD40 to get it operating , but chances are that it will have to be replaced anyway.

GMC jimmy key stuck in ignition, steering column will not lock, electrical system working

It sound like your shifter linkage is worn and your ignition interlock is not making it into the park position. I'm not 100% sure on jimmies but my GMC Sierra could be adjusted on the steering column under the hood. It's just a rod through an eye with a bolt. Put the transmssion in park and loosen the bolt and twist the column until the indicator is in park, retighten the bolt.

Put key in to start 2000 jimmy and no power and key will not come out

Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. Not the ignition lock cylinder, the electrical switch.

2000 Jimmy , put in park , turn off key & key wont come out of ignition.

Does the transmission work in all 4 gears? I've seen bad ignition switches cause this. Not the ignition lock cylinder, the electrical switch.

Can I simply replace a battery in my jimmy car door unlock/lock

On the side of the key FOB is an indentation to put a coin. Pry apart with coin then replace battery. Long as the battery hasn't been dead to long it should still work on the vehicle.

Ignition Won't Unlock

You have to change out the ignition I just went through that with mine 2000 and it had to do with the button on the gear shift and lock in ignition switch.
It cost me around 400.00
