Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

Here's what I did when that happened to me:

I called the local police and they came to me with the tools they carry in their trunk. these are standard tools they carry with them for instances like this. They go between the glass and the door to release the lock. You have to wait for someone to get there and the police are free versus a locksmith. Good luck.

Thanks, ***** ***** remember to rate me 5 stars.
