VW Touareg V6 2005 - Battery seems dead, nothing works

Battery is dead, key is locked in the ignition, power locks do not work. I know the battery is under the seat but where are the connections so I can try to jump start the car?

    I have a similar problem but on a 2004 plate, I returned from a 3 month holiday and had lost my keys, i had a spare which I opened the car with but when i put in ignition, the key got stuck. at this point i also realised that the battery is dead, i know the main battery is under the driver seat, however my seats are electric too and would need some electric power before i can move them back to get to the battery, further more the handbrake is electric too so I assume will be difficult to tow anyway.

    Unable to jump start car or get any power to it.  Very painful to watch the tow truck driver drag the car up onto the bed in order to get it back to the dealership.

If it's just had work done on the steering lock I would suspect that the ignition wiring has come adrift in the steering column. If the lights and radio are working the battery is probably OK. As part of the procedure for replacing/fixing the steering lock all ignition connectors are usually removed from the switch, perhaps one has come loose and fallen off the terminal connector.

No power to truck, key locked in ignition


Is the battery dead? try charger, battery is okay but when you turn key nothing happens and key is jammed? Key won't turn? not much information you provided, but if key not working and battery is good sounds like the ignition cylinder has failed and needs replacing, i would not recommend for a novice as dis-assembly is and reassembly is not easy and requires a few special tools and if mistakes are made could attivate air bag, deactivate air bag or short electronic components

2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system


Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work.

Three years and a very unhappy girlfriend who owns the truck. but she's happy now.

Nothing works and can't remove key from ignition


If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not come out of the ignition cylinder. Don't force the ignition key to ensure you do not damage the pass lock system in your ignition. Jump the battery or replace it to get enough voltage to remove the key's from the ignition and check the fuse box for any blown fuses. Good luck and keep me posted.

2001 lexus ls430. Dead battery at airport. jumoers turned over starter fine but car would not start and no dashboard lights, fan, radio but driver and front passenger windows and doorlocks worked but not...


Sounds as though when your battery died the engine imobiIiser locked down.
YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED TO A LEXUS DEALER AND HAVE THE MASTER KEY AND OTHERS REPROGRAMMED TO THE IGNITION...BUT
If you have your wallet key as well , try taking all to the airport. HOLD the card to the dash beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds, then try turning the key several times. I haven`t done an LS but the failsafe when a remote fails is to hold the key beside the ignition for at least 20 seconds ....
Also try the lock routine, but I think the issue is in dash..security needing to reboot to your key.
My understanding is that the lock routine re initialises the lock setstings when power is restored

Can't remove key from ignition. battery is dead


If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not release from the ignition. If there is no signal from the transmission shifter that it's in park since the battery is dead, then the ignition lock will not release the keys.  After charging the battery or jumping the blazer to start it and the key's still will not release, try this. 
There is a "plunger" as part if the ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it will release the key. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted be glad to help.

Key fob won't unlock or lock car VW Golf 2000


You probably caused a short circuit when you changed the light. Change fuse #14. Next time, don't turn the lights on until you are finished changing the lights.
