How to unlock a Dodge Nitro without a key?

If you've locked your keys in your car, or lost them all together, then you are going to need to get a little creative to get back into your car. In the old days you could probably have used a ruler and some wire to pop the door lock on your car, then hotwired it and driven it away. However, vehicles built in the last 40 years (like the Dodge Nitro SUV) aren't so simple and require the professional help of a locksmith to get into. A locksmith will be able to open your car door, though if you have lost your keys completely you may still need to have the car taken to your mechanic to have the locks replaced and the new keys coded to the car's computer.
