So the battery in my Lexus died sometime while I was out of town. Come to find out the key wouldn't go in the lock either. I used some WD-40 and managed to get it in all the way but it won't turn.
I picked up some unfreeze lock stuff from the hardware store and tried that but it still doesn't open.
The odd thing is, if I use too much force, the whole lock ends up spinning around (perhaps this is a safety measure to prevent keys from breaking?). Does anyone have any suggestions of things to try? Or ways to pop the hood from the outside?
