Some cars have bars in the doors that prevent a slim jim from reaching any part of the lock, without the book, you are just guessing, locksmiths have the books, also. if you have AAA, They can send out a guy to do it, I had a guy come not too long a go with a big giant metal rod and I said, you're not going to stick that in my car!!! He said, ok, see ya, I said wait a minute, you are here. let's see what you got, He had a thing like a blood pressure checker that he slid in the door and pumped it up and got the door open far enough to get his giant piece of metal in there, took about 20 seconds, he was in. I said, I take back everything I said about you.

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: slim jim did not work in opening the veh.

take an old auto antenna or, a very stiff metal rod and, using a plastic blade (like a plaster knife) bend the glass on the driver's side door; at the top of the door; gently outward; place a rubber or, wood spacer (eraser, wedge etc) between the door frame and, the glass: you only need one inch space; use the rod to press /pull the button / lever on the passenger side

I locked keys in car, still in the ignition of my 2010 Chevy Malibu. Where should I place the slim Jim to unlock door.


Best bet is to call a lock smith and have him get in the car for you. Later model cars are designed to prevent slim jim from working in mast cases. The cost of the locksmith will be small compared to the possible damage and having to replace broken window, linkage or wiring in the door.

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.

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.
