SOURCE: 04 GMC Canyon remote locking died. Batt replaced on remote..

It sounds like your key fobs need to be reprogrammed. There are two ways to do that. The first way is to go to the dealership and let them do. The second way is to manually do it. This should work. Get inside the truck and close the door. Apply the parking brake and cycle the key on and off four times. If it enters the program mode either the horn will sound or the door will lock and unlock or vise versa. Press and hold both the lock and unlock buttons at the same time. If the key fob reprograms, the locks will lock and unlock or vise versa. Turn the key off and try to lock and unlock the truck with the key fob. If it works then your good to go. I hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: The battery died, can't open door with key

Hi there, 
If you can get under the car you can attach a jump starter lead to the starter motor, If you can get to it underneath,
as in Positive lead to the positive lead on the starter and just attach the negative to the engine somewhere and try using your remote.
Remember that usually on most cars the lead to the starter comes directly from the battery and goes to a solenoid on the actual starter so you wont be able to start it this way but at least it should put some srt of charge into the system so you can get into the car and open the bonnet
Or if this doesnt work try tapping into a wire that you know is allways connected to positive that you might be able to get to.
As in maybe a curtesy light in the tray that you might be able to turn on from outside the car without having the ignition turned on.
otherwise you would
a) go to the dealer and ask mroe options 
b) get a locksmith to pick the door to open it
c) last resort, break the cheapest window to get inside Check first as sometimes the smallest is the most expensive.
and i know it sounds stupid to break a window but sometimes it works out cheaper to do that and get it repaired/replaced then calluing a locksmith or tilt traying your car to a mechanic.
Hope this helps
Cheers 
Steve

Open the door manually with the key!

Many Ford Escapes have power door locks as standard equipment. This system consists of a lock switch, lock actuator and wiring harness. When you depress the lock switch, it sends an electronic signal through the harness to the actuator. The actuator moves an internal piston that either pulls the actuator hook down or pushes it up. The actuator hook connects to the lock rod, which either locks or unlocks the door, depending on which way you push the lock button. While this system won't work with a dead battery, the mechanical lock system remains unaffected by electrical power loss.

Insert the door lock key into the driver's door lock.
Turn the key counterclockwise one quarter turn.
Pull the door handle up until the Escape's door opens. Once the driver door is open, simply open the remaining doors by pulling the interior door handles until the doors open.

Pontiac Vibe is locked with no battery. How to unlock doors? Key doesn't work the locks.


I had the same problem yesterday. I removed the battery (that was near dead) to take to get tested, but I had locked the doors and closed the hood before leaving. When I got back with the new battery the key fob wouldn't work, and the key would not manually open the doors. I ended up having a mechanic friend reach up under the front of the car to manually release the hood (it took him about 20 minutes to figure it out), replaced the battery, and then the key fob worked again. I'm not sure why the keys wouldn't work in the door - any ideas there?

You will need to try reprogramming the remote 1st, below is the complete procedure. If the reprogram doesn't restore function then you will need the dealer to test the keyless entry system, you may have a bad module or remote (only applies if both remotes don't work).

Start with the key out of the ignition, drivers door is open all others closed and
drivers door is unlocked.

2. Perform these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Close the drivers door
D. Insert the key into ignition and leave it in ignition.
E. Turn the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
F. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically
indicating successful entry into programming mode.
Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1.5 seconds.
B. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
Press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door
locks should lock and then unlock once indicating successful programming. If
the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was
not accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Open drivers door.

If you have a keyless remote, use it to lock and unlock your doors-if not, lock your door with the door lock, close the door, and unlock the door with the key. This should reset the alarm.

Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,

Can not open any door using the key or remote control.


Hmm, probably a dead battery. The problem with those locks is that they are electrically actuated, not mechanically unlocked. Thats why the key turns easily. If you turn and hold it to the unlock position, and the battery is okay, the windows will roll down. If they dont, then its the batt. Call a mechanic.
