Most people use a coat hanger for this but i found a better way
go to your parts store and get a stick of brake line (there cheap about $5.00)
then smash the brake line flat (place brake line on ground hit with hammer to flatten it)
then stick the brake line throw window or door frame and try and hit unlock button
the brake line is more rigid yet still flexible is why works better than a coat hannger

After using slim jim car door will not open from outside or inside


You probably knocked the door linkage off during the slim jum operation, You will need to remove the inner door panel and re-connect the door handle linkage. Hopefully you did not break the plastic clip.

How do I slim jim into my 2006 chevy colorado with the keys locked inside?


it depends if your door has the antitheft plate,most cars have them now,its just a small metal plate inside the door to stop a slim Jim,if you door has a lock pin you can hook with banding that's the way to get in,but you will need a wedge to open the top of the door just a few mm then take the banding fold it in half and push it in the gap then slide one half forward to open the banding hook the lock pin then close the banding and pop the lock ok.

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 toyota 4 runner. have slim jim wanted picture of door schmatic to find proper linkage to jimmie.


A typical slim jim wont do the trick for you.

You need special tools to do the trick. Most tow truck drivers have them.

Locked out of 96 chevy cavalier


You can use a wire hanger with a hook bent onto the end fairly easily if you slide it down the window and try to feel around to hook onto the lock mechanism. It may take a bit of patience, but I got into my 2000 with not too much trouble. Then do what I did immediately afterwards - get another key cut to keep in your wallet...
