I have the key, but it won't open any of the door locks. Fob and keyless entry won't work, the battery died (yes, I need to get it replaced).

I can probably get into the trunk, a good shove in just the right spot will usually pop the latch on it. Can I get in past the back seat without too much damage, or would it be easier to try and get in through a window (coat hangar, slim Jim etc)??

  • Which battery died? Is it the battery that is stopping you getting in?

  • If you can get under the car, you can get a +ve jumper cable or battery charger on the start motor post and a -ve cable / jumper onto the engine block, you can get power into it that way that ought to be enough to let you unlock the cabin. Apr 11, 2019 at 9:58

    Why does the key not unlock the door? Have you tried spraying the lock with WD-40?
