Default ^%*$#&$%#@* HELP..keys locked in car

I closed my trunk quicker than I remembered my keys were in there. My doors are locked too. Anyone have knowledge on how to unlock the door without calling a locksmith?

Do what I do... open wallet, remove spare door key.

No? Try prying the door at the top back corner and hit the unlock with a rod of some sort.

That wouldve been my advice as well, you should talk to someone important about that, its their job to "protect and serve" right? sounds like you could use them to serve right about now.

The cops around here unlock ppls cars all the time, I dont know why yours would be any different unless theyre just a-holes.

that'* what I'd suggest as well. It does work. As long as you're decently strong, these doors are not too hard to pull away far enough to wedge something between the door, and body to unlock the doors.

I thought about getting a spare key made last week.

I stole the metal strips from my wiper blade, can't seem to find the unlock with it.

The cops I called before were in Syracuse. I will try the cops here if I can't get it soon. It'* ******* pouring rain right now.

Thats what I had to do when I was first installing my poppers. I just flexed the door with something at the top and used a hanger.

John, I misunderstood what you were telling me to do, I thought you meant sliding something down into the door

I did end up prying the door open at the A pillar and slid a heavy thin metal strip down to hit the unlock button. I wasn't using anything long enough before. In the process of jimmying in between the door I knocked a rod loose and now the driver'* door does not open with the (outside) handle.

Now I need tips on how to take the door panel off without breaking anything. I know these things are a PITA.
