2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo Keys locked inside

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo and my only keys are locked inside. I would normally use a hangar or someone like that but I am at school. Any ideas or solutions to get the door or the trunk or even the rear windshield (which can open on my model) open? Thank you!

do any of your friends have AAA? if they rode with you then they can use their unlock services, If you have progressive insuarance, sometimes that is part of your bundle if you selected it (1 buck a month)

otherwise, you will probrably be ponying up 50-100 for an unlock. unless you feel like replacing a window

Best I got... sorry

This is why everyone should invest in road side assistance. I have it through progressive and it has been nothing but great. On that note, I have no helpful ideas. Schools have closets, there should be a hanger somewhere.

Why is everyone so against the idea of a locksmith whenever it comes to lock and key issues. They are not as expensive as you think.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

I've had big time issues with AAA and refuse to deal with them any more. Besides, we own Jeeps. We're supposed to be prepared. As far as lock-out assistance goes, I would suggest you invest in a magnetic "hide-a-key". Use a standard key blank to make a copy of your key (no chip), that way if someone does actually find it all they can do is open the door (and set off the alarm) it won't allow them to drive off with your Jeep.

I know it doesn't help you now, but you'll never be locked out again.

I would use a hitch safe instead of a key box. You always have a metal rod to push the unlock button, antenna.

If the school's a college, many of them include motorist assistance as part of your parking pass fees.

A coat hanger will do more harm than good.

My opinion (As a locksmith), would be to see if Chrysler dealer will give you a keycode, and have a locksmith ut you that key from code for ~$15 and pick it up from their shop.

Or deal with it, learn from this, and spend the money for a locksmith to come out.
