Locked out of my car! Keys (main & spare) won't unlock the doors.

i had same problem with a mitsubishi fto , tried the coat hanger thing got the passengers door unlocked but it still wouldnt open, rang the automobile association, he came along and did the same as i did to passengers door , to the drivers door and presto he was in,so maybe the drivers door has the master control, or ring a dealer for that make and model they might be able to put you on the right path.

1992 toyota 4runner ignition is locked cannot turn the key

I had the same problem and after reading this thread contacted an automobile lock smith. He stated that the first thing to do is get a new key made to the factory key code. The metal in the key is softer than the metal pins in the lock tumbler, and when you make copies from an old key it copies the wear plus some.
I did not have the key code fob that came with the car so the lock smith told me to take the VIN# to the Toyota dealer and they can cut a key based upon the stored code for my 4Runner.

$10 later it works fine with the new key and a heck of a lot cheaper than spending the $200 to have the ignigition drilled and replaced.

I locked my keys in the car how can i get them out

Unless your good with coat hanger between glass and gasket.I would call a lock smith.Or if you have friend that works for towing co. they have what is called a slim jim to open door locks from outside window,but this works only on certain cars.Cars with side impact bars inside car door makes this tool useless.

Locked keys in car.need picture of inside of the door to see how to open it with a coat hanger

BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL!! pull top of door out with your fingers and wedge something in the gap. doesnt have to be a huge gap just enough to get a hanger or whatever you choose to use. if it has lock button you can directly push with hanger or whatever. if no button you can bend a hook on hanger and snag door lock and pull open. good luck!! BE CAREFUL, DO NOT PULL DOOR TO FAR. JUST ENOUGH AS NEEDED. let me know how it goes!!!

How to removeradio from a 2005 toyota 4runner?

A dealer will say "buy special tool 456HANRT58907664 at $89999" or there abouts, quite simply what I do, is get a coat hanger cut it into U shapes X2 then insert the ends into the holes along side of the stereo this will push open the locks inside then it simply slides forward and unplugs in the housing, remove the areal cable and your ready to insert the new one, remember to record the codes on each of the units. Good luck

Keys are locked inside the car

The easy way is find someone with AAA invite them over and have them call, AAA will come and open er up for ya.
the way they usually do it is to gently pry the top of the door open and put in some rubber wedges that look like door stops, then with a heavy wire like a coat hanger they try to catch the power door lock switch or the lock lever itself. good luck, cb
