Hello and welcome to Just Answer!

 

Unfortunatly, there is no other way than calling a locksmith. They have the correct tools to unlock the doors without damage.

They are really tough with a slim jim. Work the slim jim toward the latch area of the door. Work the took up and down and all around the latch, and you may get lucky. The way the latch and locking mechanism is located, it is tough. the way most locksmiths do it now is with a expanding air bag they put between the upper door and roof. They then use a long bar to hit the lock switch.

You could also call your insurace company and see if you have lock-out insurance.

hi,

please do not pay me for this answer, this is a freebie.

take proof of ownership to the dealer and they will be able to cut you a new key from the V.I.N. #. if you do not have lock out coverage then this is the most cost effective way and you now have a spare.
