“If you have power locks, OnStar may be able to unlock your door. However, you’ll need to pay for a plan and you car must be properly equipped with power locks.
The ability of OnStar to unlock the door varies with each vehicle, so you might want to call them at 1-800-4ONSTAR. Alternatively, you may be able to use their app to open your car doors.
If that doesn’t work, your car insurance may cover the cost of a locksmith.”
