How worn out is the key hole for the tempo? I only ask this because I've had two cars that I could stick just about anything in the lock that was of similar design and open them it was so old.

Where are your locks on the doors? The older cars were much much easier to bust into. Someone said, slimjim, they work best on the old ones.

if you have, or can find a blood pressure monitor- I know I'm describing this all wrong, but it's the kind the doctor puts on your arm and pumps up- if you can find something like that and maybe jam it between the door and frame and start pumping it up, it can get the door far enough away for you to possibly unlock the door using something thin and long.

I saw someone from triple A do this once with a customer's car.

What kind of locks does it have. Is the lock button on the door by the window or by the latch like the civic.? You can try using the screwdriver to pull the window away from the door eneough to stick your arm in of lift the door lock with the hanger.
