Locked keys up in 2003 chev silverodo truck,no spare key , how do I get it open

Answers :

Get a small piece of wood and make it into a wedge. Insert that between the door and the cab near the front window directly above where the door lock slide is. Get a long piece of flat metal (like a framing square) and feed it through the space you made with the wedge push it down until your right beside the slidding lock and you should be able to slide the lock ahead. I have done this quite a few times. Or you can try a coat hanger if you have power locks and try and hit the unlock side. Hope this helps.

When I got out of my cherokee the doors locked and the keys were in the ignition and the car was running. This was ok because I was home and I had an extra key fob in the house. But the reomote would not unlock the doors or the rear window. I didn't have a spare key to manual unlock the doors. This has never happen before. I had to pay someone to get the doors unlock. After that I shut the doors with the key in the ignition and this time the key fob worked. Opened and unlocked doors while t

My Honda CR-V EX 2005 doors lock by themselves. Occasionally, after you unlock it with the remote key, it locks itself before you can get in. It also happens sometimes when I unlock the car, then open the back door to load groceries, the rest rest of the doors lock while the back one is still open and when you close the back that one is locked then too.I am afraid someday the keys will get locked inside. Help!

I have a 96 Nissan Maxima. The locks on the doors keep locking and unlocking. The only way to get in the car is to put the key in the door and with the key still turned open the door. If the car is running with any of the doors open the locks are locking and unlocking until the door is shut. How do I fix something like that? I unplugged the battery for a minute to see if that would help, but it didnt.

Audi A4 2004 saloon- The sync between my key fob and the boot suddenly stopped working. I was able to double tap the open button and the boot did open but think i may have lent on the buttons whilest cleaning the car. The car opens and locks as it should the boot lock is in a horizontal postion and the main problem is that to get into the boot you have to remove the keys from the ignition to do so obviously this isnt always practical. Im sure there is a simple fix for this but i have tried ever

I have power door locks. The lock mechanism works properly. Only the driver's side door won't unlock. Can't unlock it manually with either the switch or the key. Before it quit it was difficult to turn the key to unlock it, locking was no problem. Now the key gives the indication that it would break off in the lock if forced. Can't get the door open to work on it.

I have a 1973 stringray and cannot open the driver's door. I have removed the door panel and manually operated the locking mechanism (rods are moving OK) but the door will not open. The external lock is rotating when I use the key to open the door. I have no details on how the external lock connects to the rods and how to get the door open. I am chasing up a copy of the manual for the car but in the meantime can anyone provide some guidance? Cheers

I have a 2004 4runner that I just installed a new power latch in the rear hatch. A small black string was attached to the release (I assume to open lock in the event the lock won't open electrically). After installing the new mechanism, the lock WILL latch fully manually, but will NOT operate through the power locking switch, key fob or the manual lock located on the hatch itself. Is there a "reset" I must do to the lock or computer system to get the new lock to be recognized by the ECM?
