    I've had this happen to my car many times.....

    you need to get underneath the car and get a long metal rod and try and push open the lock from underneath.

    Can you actually touch the rod with the pipe yep? or very hard too but capable with alot of moving?

    (hopefully its as easy as it sounds)

    cheers
