The following opening methods are offered in order to unlock the 2005-up Chevrolet Corvette and the 2003-09 Cadillac XLR:

 

Use the High Tech Tools Long John LJ Tool to unlock the passenger door locking mechanism. Insert wedge along the vertical edge towards the top of the window glass. Insert the LJ Tool through the opening created along the rear edge of the window glass using a weather stripping protector. Slide the tool into the passenger compartment and hook the passenger door electric lock-unlock button. Position the tip of the tool at the top of the lock-unlock button and gently push to avoid scratching the plastic button. This allows the inside door handle to open the door.

Position the tip of the tool against the door release button (round button) above the passenger trim panel armrest. Push the button to open the door.

 

Use the Pro-Lok AO-42 “Long Reach Tool”, a tool sleeve and an inflatable wedge to unlock the passenger’s door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge five inches from the top edge of the driver’s door window. Inflate the wedge according to manufacturer’s specifications. Insert the sleeve at the top edge in order to protect the surrounding area.

Insert the “L” end of the AO-42 car-opening tool through the sleeve and into the passenger compartment with the tip pointing down. Slide the tool into the passenger compartment 60 inches until the tip contacts the passenger door electric lock-unlock button. Seat the tip of the tool at the top of the button and push gently. This allows the inside door handle to open the door.

Position the tip of the tool against the door release button (round button) above the passenger trim panel armrest. Push the button to open the door.

 

Use the Slide Lock AutoBuster III car-opening tool to unlock the passenger’s door locking mechanism. The AutoBuster III car opening tool requires two wedges forward and rearward of the inside door lock-unlock button and door release button, an opening large enough for the AutoBuster III tool to enter. Insert the AutoBuster III tool into the door cavity until the bend is beneath the bottom of the window. Remove the wedges. Rotate the tool until the bend is on the passenger side of the window. Carefully raise the tool until the tip is visible. Manipulate the tool until the tip is directly in front of the electric lock-unlock button. Position the tip of the tool at the top of the button. Gently push the button to unlock the door locking mechanism. Position the tip of the tool against the door release button (round button) on the passenger trim panel above the armrest. Pushing the button will open the door.

Carefully remove the tool according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

 

Use the Steck Manufacturing BigEasy “Glo” and a wedge to unlock the passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge or inflatable wedge into the top corner of the door. Once the door has been wedged out, insert the BigEasy tool into the passenger compartment. Manipulate the tool to position the ninety degree bend tip contacts the passenger door electric lock-unlock button. Seat the tip of the tool at the top of the button and push gently. This allows the inside door handle to open the door.

Position the tip of the tool against the door release button (round button) above the passenger trim panel armrest. Push the button to open the door.

 

The Tech-Train Productions method is to manipulate the mechanical lock. Depending upon the year, the mechanical lock will either be a 75 or 93 groove. Picking, try-out keys or key decoders can be used. When picking, push in with the tip of the pick and use light turning pressure as the Corvette and XLR locks are probably equipped with a clutch mechanism. Once the hatch or trunk lid is open, pull the cable to open the door.
