Locked my keys in my truck

Postby jamestaylor47 [OP] » Sep 08 2013, 4:32pm

My friend backed my truck up for me and locked the keys in the truck they are in the ignition but pulled out just enough where the doors would lock we managed to get a wire in there and push the unlock button but it won't unlock. On either side it'll lock all day long but won't unlock. Any ideas without calling onstar or a locksmith?

Onstar should do it for free if you have the service otherwise if you can get a wire in there how about trying to get the wire to hook into the keys and maneuver the keys to the front seat then try using the wire to push the door open button on the keys?...

Try pulling the keys out of the ignition with the wire. If you can get the keys in your hand this way, you`re set. But, if you can only just get the keys out of the ignition, try to move the lock button to unlock after you get them out of the ignition.

Well, then it looks like you have no choice but to call OnStar or a locksmith. :(

Do you have access to a big easy. That's what we use at work, this maybe the wire you are referring to.

Just call Onstar, I'm sure someone in the Philippines will unlock your doors. It's part of the service you pay for.

Well, I am assuming he doesn't have onstar active on his 2003 truck. It is looking like the locksmith is your most likely alternative.
In the future, I suggest you have an extra key cut and then put it in one of those magnetic key holders and put it somewhere on your truck. I put mine on top of the frame just under the drivers door. It sits on top of the frame so it is very secure. I had it on my 04 blazer for 6 years and it never moved. There are other ways of hiding/securing a spare key and before everyone starts posting about the security hazard of using a spare key, ask yourself: what thief would even think to look for a spare key and if he did, what are the chances he would find it? As long as you don't advertise the fact there is a spare hidden on your truck, it will likely save you a lot of hassle at some point. You can likely find a spot to hide it on your truck that would take a mechanic hours to find it even if he had a lift to put the truck on.
Lots more convenient that locksmiths and much cheaper than both locksmiths and Onstar. I bought a spare key on ebay for $5 and programmed it myself so not only will it open the doors but will start the truck in case the keys get lost altogether. Or you can just use the spare that came with the truck.

And, I have always wondered why OnStar doesn't offer fee per use for unlocking doors on vehicles that don't have active onstar subscriptions. They could easily get $25 a shot to unlock someone's doors in a pinch and how much would it actually cost them to provide that service. Pure profit for them and then maybe another chance to get someone to restart their subscription. If not, an easy $25 each time they have to call up. Even at $50 a shot, it is cheaper and much faster than calling a locksmith so most people would gladly pay.

Shhhh! - It better be a free service for as much as the yearly subscription cost.
