Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

there is no way into a locked car. the vehicle would not be secure, and the passenger's not safe, if there was.

I would suggest sending for the spare key or calling roadside assistance who can gain entry with professional entry tools

I am sorry if you were hoping for a different answer but I trust that my honest and prompt reply is appreciated.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
