I locked my keys in my trunk and called a wrecker who had a slim Jim. The problem is that the car is designed to "relock" almost immediately after the slim Jim opened the lock. If you are using the slim Jim at the driver's side, someone on the passenger side has to be quick to open the handle before the lock relocks. It took us many tries before we got it. My problem was that I thought I could use the button in the glove box to open the trunk. But good old Toyota made it so that is disabled if you get into the car by some other manner other than the key or remote. I ended up having to go to a local dealer and getting them to cut me new key.
