    Slim Jim
    Call a Lock Smith

    I'd call a lock smith for sure, probably cost you $50 to open a lockout. I have AAA so it's all prepaid and I don't have to worry about fumbling with cash or anything at the time I need service, plus they are more responsive when they're dealing with AAA because they know that there will be an automated call-back and they will get graded on their service.

    I havent bought a new Toyota in 13 years, do they still give you the plastic credit card key that will only unlock the door?
    I still have the one for my 99 Tacoma and it's never been used.

    A lock smith will do. Worse case scenario is the little breakings that must be done. If your car have alarms, then better inform the neighborhood right away, or they might call the cops.

    Call a locksmith. The Tacoma locks look like you could use a slim Jim, but the vertical rod is in a plastic housing. Slim jim wont grab it. What the locksmith well use is a rod about 20 inches long, that has a4 inch piece going up afrom the bottomt about 11 oclock, then to a1 inch piece that goes to

    - - - Updated - - -

    About 8 oclock. The rod goes in, under thewindow, into the cab and comes out right next to the vertical lock., on thee inside of the cab. It then catches onto the lock (the side facing the
    window) and pulls the thum
    b latch up. I'm a locksmith!
