Username Post: Help! Need to break into my truck!        (Topic#179063)

[censored] kids took a [censored] screwdriver to my [censored] lock again! It's still locked but the cylinder has been pushed into the door and I can't get my key in... It's a 94 K1500 extended cab, is there an easy way to get into these without smashing the door apart? I have no rear window to crawl through... I'm a little frustrated as this is the third time I will have to fix the [censored] thing and it's not an easy place to work on things.

No need to smash the door apart or climb through a rear slider window; you can pay a lock-out service to come open your truck. Most people don't realize it usually only costs about $35 or so depending on your area, and that's a lot cheaper and easier than replacing anything you might break trying to get in.

I'm guessing since you said they did it again, that both doors are damaged now, and that's why you can't get in with the key?

Also, you may be able to get a local police officer or wrecker driver to open it for you; many of them carry slim jims and lock-out kits. Sometimes they will do this for free (at least generally the police will), or very cheap. I'm a wrecker driver and I usually charge people $25~$35 for a lock-out unless I have to drive out of my way to get to them. I've done quite a few for free when it seemed to me that the people genuinely couldn't afford to pay.

Anyway, sorry to hear it, it's happened to many of us and worse - my fully customized '92 was stolen and stripped, so believe me I feel your pain. At least your truck is still there and they didn't even manage to get inside and take anything.

I got into my 98 Silverado pretty easy at work one night in about 10 minutes when I realized the keys were left in it. I pried the upper passenger door away from the body on the top just enough to get a wire down to hit the electric unlock button. Ended up real easy and no damage except for having too bust off the plastic wind deflector I had on the window.

I got in, cost me 2 bucks... All I had to do was get my key copied and then make a few modifications to the new key.

I also stopped at the dealership and ordered the parts, tomorrow I get to install the damn thing...
