SOURCE: Battery dead; cannot open hood

If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)

SOURCE: battery is dead, cannot open the hood, auto power locks

I found a few solutions to your problem here:
http://en.allexperts.com/q/Porsche-795/f_4364103.htm

A lot of them have some merit, depending on whether you want to actually manually open the hood or use the inovative options posted there. Either way, i hope this helps and best of luck with your problem!

SOURCE: Dead battery & can't open trunk to charge battery

Simple solution - your tbird has a mechanical trunk lock behind your driver seat on the face of the package shelf. Just use your key to open it.

SOURCE: 03 vw beetle, battery is dead and door key

Wow. You have a real problem here. I see a couple of choices for you.
#1 Can you get in through the passenger door or the trunk?
#2 You can break a window that will allow you to reach the door locks.
#3 You need a membership in an auto club or a friend with AAA. They will open your door using a 'slim-jim' or a 'wonder tool'. This will use up 1 of the 4 emergency calls that are allowed per year.
I would suggest the last option. Just ask around at work or check with your neighbors. You cannot 'roll-over' those 4 uses per year. It's use 'em or lose 'em. Many people will share their membership, if you simply ask. Good luck

Battery dead lock doors


You always have a key cylinder on the drivers door
to get into the vehicle, unless you only own one key
& locked it inside

If you raise the vehicle up,you can put your red battery
charger lead to the starter solenoid & ground the other
lead to the subframe & try charging the dead & worn out
battery your going to replace

2004 Volvo XC70 won't unlock


Put a battery charger on the starter cable from
under the car & ground the black charger lead
That will charge it enough to open the door & hood
Thought every car has at least one key cylinder on
drivers door !!

The battery is dead on my 2008 Ford Taurus X, the doors are locked and my keys won't unlock the door. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I've already tried the key less entry. That is...


I hate the way they have incorporated these new alarm systems so that you cant open the doors when the battery is dead, some cars will lock you inside unable to open door from inside. The electric door locks are what is keeping you from being able to unlock doors. Some people go to Auto Zone and rent the tool that can be slid into the door by way of the window opening, this doesn't always work. the best way to get in is to go under the car with a set of jumper cables and charge the battery from the large battery cable that is connected to the starter.. charge battery enough to access door locks P.s. it wont take much power to use key to unlock door after the battery has a small charge..
