    If someone else has access to your FOB they can push the unlock button into their cell phone while you hold your cell phone towards your truck and it should open.

    One of the most ridiculous myths ever, imo. Have you ever tried it? Let me know how it goes.


    It depends where the keys are. Are they somewhere where you can see them? If they aren't in the ignition and aren't tucked away in the console or something you can try and wedge the very top corner of the door open with a wedge block of wood. Just enough to stick an uncoiled wire hanger through to go and make a grab for the keys.

    The block wedge in the shape of a door stop, kinda, btw.

    Good luck!

    Kind of far to reach with wire hanger from the opposite corner. You can TRY to do the wedge and then hit the unlock button with the hanger (or metal rod long enough)....

    More than that I have no input! Mighe be stuck waiting until this afternoon!

    the best way to do it on the 2001-2007 chevys is to wedge the top of the door open with ur fingersand place something there to hold it and stick a metal clothes hangar in there that is straightened and use it to slide the lock over to the left or right whichever unlocks it thats what i did on my dads truck when i locked myself out 8 hours away from home with a dead cell phone lol
