Depends on the year. Some just do not open with the traditional slim Jim. Some you have to use a rod and physically hit the "unlock" on the door. Stick a wood wedge or an inflatable bag included in some kits between the window and the door so you can see down and look for the linkage that pops the lock. You hook that linkage and **** it up and it will pop the lock. That for the more traditional slim jim usage. If you have to use the rod to hit "unlock" then put the wedge or inflatable bag on the side of the window between the door and frame of the car door to separate. You have to bend that rod just so. It may take a couple tries. Good luck.
Lots of things inside your door that a slim Jim can destroy. But basically slide it between the window and the rubber seal at the bottom of the glass. The idea is to hook onto the door lock linkage and pull up or push down. I'd really recommend letting a professional do it with modern lockout tools. Very easy to break stuff with that tool.
