Avalon Lockout

I got a call one afternoon from a manager of a gift shop inside the air base close to where I used to live  to open a 95 Toyota Avalon. I was debating with myself if I should agree to take a lockout call that I knew I would probably not be able to complete. I was told on the phone that the owner of the car had been locked out for several hours and that both the base security police and another locksmith were making attempts to unlock the vehicle without any success. I informed the customer that I would be willing to come out and try to open her car, but there were no guarantees I will succeed.

When I reviewed my book for that particular vehicle's make and model, I thought that an under the-window tool would be the proper tool to work with. I inserted the tool, flipped the rocker button back and it sprang right back to the locked position. At that moment, I recalled reading about the Lexus GS300 where you had to manipulate the rocker button and pull up on the latch handle at the same time. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try it and to my surprise, the door opened fairly quick.
