I use this http://www.florawrecker.com/cgi-bin/miva?M...ry_Code=LOCKOUT

In combination with this http://www.florawrecker.com/cgi-bin/miva?M...ry_Code=LOCKOUT

Safe and easy opening of car doors with no damage such as broken internal door linkage caused by slimjims.

Havent found a car or truck yet that I could not get into with those two tools.

The air bag slips between the door and B-Pillar and inflates like a balloon to spread the door far enough away to slide the long bendable rod down into the vehicle to pull/push door latch/unlock button.

P.S. I'm spoiled with keyless entry like Xmann above, lol if'n ya gotta bull'it, might as well SHO'it

A Gen 2? I remember having a number pad on my drivers door to unlock it with. Do the '92's not have these or did you just forget the number (like I did. )

If it does, get a permanent marker and write the keypad number somewhere on the underside of the car so you can avoid this in the future. Mine was written on the inside of the trunk lid when I bought mine.

Anyway, I used a coathanger to press the lock/unlock button.

Oh BTW, you're not actually still in the car are you? Cause this could be a Blonde-Star emergency.

I locked my keys on my 89 SHO a month ago. Don't know if this works on a Gen2 Taurus though. Lift the rear door handle and see if you have holes where a small flathead screwdriver can fit in. It takes a little work but I was able to pop the lock going through the hole on the left. Good Luck.

Not all cars have the number pad. Remember, it was an expensive luxury option.

I locked my keys in my car before. There was a gap between the front door and the B-pillar. I got my hands on a metal coat hanger and bent it out to a long hook. Then I shoved it in thru the door and b-pillar and then jambed it into the door panel crack near the lock plunger. Then I pulled it up and down and it caught the lock plunger and pulled it up just enough to partially unlock the door. I was so happy! And this happened a few hours after I graduated high school so it was a stupid (the fact I locked my keys in the car right after I graduated) and proud (I got it out with a coat hanger like MacGyver would have done) event.

Yes this will work on a GEN 2. Very easy and quick.
