Breaking Electric or Automatic Locks
Finding the right tool You would need few tools to break into your car without damaging it. The basic tool would include a wedge and a poker, since your intention would be to create a space between the car door and body and find the lock button.
For a wedge you need to use something flat and thin, in fact very thin. You can use a putty knife as a wedge to pry it in between the door to create a narrow space without disturbing or causing any damage.
For a poker that has to be narrow and long, you can use the antenna of the car or a straightened coat hanger, or anything that is narrow enough to fit into the space you created and long enough to reach the lock button.
Wedge the door open Jam the wedge that you have into the space between the upper part of the door and the roof of the car. Thump it in gently with the heel of your hand. You can cover the wedge with a piece of cloth to protect the car paint.
Insert your rod After the wedge has created a narrow space between the door and the car body, insert the poker in. Guide the poker to the lock button.
Press on the lock Once the poker or the rod has reached the lock button, press on it firmly. You may not be able to do it at the first attempt. Keep on trying a couple of times unless to get to press the lock button firmly.
Once the lock button is pressed, you have successfully broken in your car. Open the door and retrieve your keys.
