You have four options

1. you can break a window
2. you can buy a lockout kit, tool #108 is the gm tool and it will go under the window and grab the lock button and slide it to the unlock position.

3. Call a towing service or a lock smith to have them perform a lockout service.
4. Go to a GM dealer with proof of ownership and have them cut you a new key.

My keys are locked inside how should I open


Instructions

Straighten out the metal coat hanger and bend one end of the hanger into a hook shape. Make the hook about one inch.

Place the end of the metal coat hanger with the hook on it between the window and the frame. Place the hanger 1/2 an inch behind the door handle toward the the edge of the door closest to the rear door.

Push the hanger down about two feet into the door frame. Pull up on the hanger until you feel the hook catch onto the metal arm inside the door frame that controls the lock. You may have to try a few times before the hook catches the metal arm.

Pull up on the hanger once the hook has connected to the metal arm until the door lock unlocks. The lock handle on the inside of the car will move once you have connected the hook to the metal arm that controls the door lock.

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!!!

Keys locked


A coat hanger stretched out fully, you need a flat head screw driver and a rag, place the rag around the flat head screw driver then use it to pry a very small amount on the top of the door, when you pry enough to get the thin coat hanger through, use the hanger to press the unlock button on the inside door.
