My daughter has a 2009 Honda Fit. It seems someone has done something to the car which has caused the battery to go flat. Also, the only door key (driver's side) won't unlock the door. Since the battery is flat, the car only makes a slight (and I mean very slight) noise when you press the unlock button on the fob. How in the heck do I get the door unlocked and open? And before you say, use a rock on a window, that is absolutely the last resort.
What I've tried:
- I've tried going in from the grill to pop the hood so I can put a charger on the battery and then the fob would work ... but I cannot tell where to get at anything to pop the hood latch. I can get to the hood latch, but there's nothing to twist or turn (which I can find) which will pop the hood.
- I took the piece of rubber which helps seal between the car door and the window to see if I can get at the locking mechanism. I can see the locking mechanism, but it is completely encased in plastic. Seems Honda wants to help owners to thwart thieves, even when you're a Dad who is in the pooper because he cannot get his daughter's car started. I did manage to pull the cable which goes down from the key mechanism out of the slot, so now, even if I could get the key to turn, it won't be unlocking anything (have to get it fitted back into place).
I'm at a loss. Hoping someone can provide something I can use!
