Should work if there is no theft guards inside the doors which would make a slim Jim useless. Pay a locksmith to open the door. They have some specialized tools to get the door open without damaging anything.

SOURCE: passanger door wont open!

The rod that connect the latch to the handle has become disconnected. the door panel needs to come off. You should see a rod hanging helplessly away from the actual latch mechanism. Using the point that the rod is still attached to as a center point... rotate the rod and look for the plastic connector for the rod to reconnect. This will be a small plastic part with a clip that secures the rod in the anchor point.

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...

Unlock Chevy spark with slim Jim

Most lock out companies use a long metal rod that is inserted through the top of the door and is then used to push the power door lock button or the lock button. If you gently pull on the top of the door and insert a wedge to keep the door ajar slightly, you can use a coat hanger and manoevere it to touch the door lock button

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 remove rear door panel on 2005 mercury mariner to repair because door wont open

Removing the door when it wont open is not logical you would have to open the door first yes its going to be tricky but you may need to open the window and try through there if not try a slim jim my guess is your door handle has busted but with a slim jim you are actually grabbing the metal rod that opens it good luck.

I locked my keys inside my car how can i open it

The easiest way to gain access to your car would be to call the Police and ask them to open your door. They, if asked, should assist you with the aide of a Slim-Jim. The other option is to make your own Slim-Jim and open you door look by yourself.

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.
