How to Unlock a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix Without a Key

by Robert Good

Opening any vehicle without the key and permission from the owner is illegal. The 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix is a mid-size sedan with a six cylinder engine. Some times, owners lock the keys inside and don't have a spare key. About the only way to get into the Grand Prix is to pick the lock.You will need only one tool to do this. The time that it is going to take you will be determined by you. Lock picking is a art and all about feel.

Bend the wire coat hanger so that it is straight using the pliers. Bend one end so that is forms a handle for gripping. Bend the hanger any way that you want as long as one end forms the handle.

Bend the opposite end of the hanger into a hook. The hook needs to be 1/2 inch long and bent slightly inward, about 1/4 inch.

Place the hook end of the hanger between the Grand Prix's window and the door frame behind the door handle. Push the hanger down into the door frame 1/2 a foot. Make sure that the direction that the hook is bent is facing towards you on the other side of the door frame.

Lift up on the hanger slowly until you feel the hanger connect to a metal rod inside the Grand Prix's door frame. Once you feel it connect, then pull the door handle at the same time that you lift up on the metal rod. The door lock will release and your door will open.

Warning

  • Be careful not to scrape the paint on the door or damage the vehicle.
