Hello vanlvermr, The way that most roadservice companies do it is to wedge the door frame. The use a plastic wedge, then they insert and air bladder, that they pump up and it forces the door a little away from the body. Then they install a long rod that they touch the power unlock button. This is how AAA would do it. I locked my keys in my car, while I was at home depot. I bought a tapered piece of molding to use as a wedge and a long down that I inserted to push the button. You could improvise with something like that unless you just want to call AAA. Once you have a gap, you can use something long and attach something to give you whatever angle you need. Just make sure it can't scratch the interior when you are trying to find the button. I hope this helps. With the right equipment it's very easy, but you can improvise, just be carefull not to damage the paint on the outside of the van.

 

Your JA Expert,

Ivan

As I said before I have just been taken for $15.00. I wonder what your $9.00 tight budget answer woud have been. I do not want to pay for information I already knew. "Just call AAA."

Chrysler Mechanic: Ivan, ASE Certified Master Technician replied 9 years ago
I am not telling you to just call AAA, I am telling you how to go about doing what they do. That is your only way to do so, I was merely stating that AAA is an option. I told you how I have gotten in without any tools, so I shared that way with you. I don't know how you would like to get in any other way.

Hi my name is john.

 

You can either go to the dealer and have them a valet key to open the door or at a key shop.

 

You can buy a slim-jim set from a auto parts store and stick the wedge into the side of the glass and the door to push the glass away from the outside of the door and slide a slim jim in at a 45 degree angle toward the latch at the back of the door and try an hook a linkage rod to release the door lock.

 

Hope this help you

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
