I have a 1988 cadillac elderado and my keys are in the trunk... My car doors are locked as well. How can I get them out without calling a lock Smith?

Does your car door locks have small lift up knobs on interior doors? You would push down to our ck car. If you do then get a metal coat hanger and small wood wedge.
then untwist coat hanger end create a loop on end so you think it would slide around door lock.
gently pull top of door away from body and of car see if you can put wedge in to hold door slightly. The goal is to insert coat hanger down so you can maneuver over lock, once you do pull up.
you should bend coat hanger thinking of how you will slide into car and long enough to turn and twist until you unlock.
metal coat hangers can be obtained at a dry cleaners.

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.

Locked keys in car

find a small wedge such as a small peice of tapered wood or plastic. wedge this in between the top of the door and body by using a small rybber mallet or the palm of your hand with a glove but be careful not to bend the door to far and break the glass (wedge it away from the body no more than about 1.5 inches). just enough to get a wire or coat hanger in there to move freely and easily hit the unlock button. Also watch that you dont tear the roofs rubber weatherstripping when sliding the wedge into place. Good Luck!!!

Try the ever faithful, old coat hanger wire.

Get one, cut with pliers, straighten it out, and bend a hook on the end, slide it in beween the door rubber and door, and try to catch the button, or door catch lever.

Fiddly but it can be done.

Good Luck !!!!!!

Your message is already old so you surely have gotten into your car by now but for future problems, I'll post this anyhow.
Coat hangers may work but if you can find a friendly cop, they often carry 'slim-jims' which is a thin, flat, flexible piece of steel that slides easily past the gasket and has a hook-like opening on one end to catch the mechanism.
