Can't unlock my car door to my ford fairmont au11 remote problems?

Hi I have a ford fairmont au11.
I have ordered another remote 2 days ago hoping it will arrive tomorrow.I have put a new battery into the current remote and all the lights are flashing but nothing is happening.
I can't get into the car because for some reason the damn key won't (never has) unlock the door key fits turns left and right but won't unlock.The boot won't open with remote or the alarm I am pretty confident the car battery is not flat or anything.
I really need to get into the car but can't work out how to do so without breaking a window.
I need to be able to get into the car to reprogramme the new remote and also get some things that are locked in the boot.
Do you think it's a remote problem or receiver or what.
Thanks in advance for your help
Regards Todd

    I'm not sure if everybody has been reading my problem correctly.I really need to get into the car .I can't join cables from the batttery together or change the solenoid in the door because I can't get into the car.I have four buttons on my remote door lock, door unlock, boot release and alarm when I push any of the buttons the light flashes like normal as if it should be working but nothing happens so...... It can't be a door solenoid.I tried using a coat hanger through the window to push the unlock button on the dash but could make the coat hanger stable enough to push it and I am not 100% sure if that would open it anyway.If I can open a door handle from the inside will the door unlock? I really need to get in because if the new remote arrives tomorrow I need the key in the ignition to reset remote apparently

    I should add that the key has never been able to unlock the door from when I bought the it 5 years ago

Okay you may want to check to see if the sensor on door lock cylinder hasn't fallen off from the lock itself. Pull of the door panels and check the wires at the door lock cylinder. Hope this helps.

your alarm system has been tripped when the battery went dead, to get the information on how to reset the alarm is to call the car manufacture to get the procedure, and should not cost you anything.

How do I remove the inside door panel of a 2001 AU11 Ford Fairmont to get at the manual door cable?


Standard Trim Disconnect the remote rod-to-lock knob assembly prior to lifting off the housing plate, to avoid possible damage to the lock knob assembly.
  1. Remove the inside door handles by unfastening the retaining screws.
  2. Remove the armrest. Tag and disconnect all electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the mirror remote control bezel nut and bezel.
Before you proceed to the next step, carefully inspect the door panel to make sure that all the retaining screws have been removed.
  1. Using a wooden spatula or panel puller (available at most automotive parts stores), pry around the trim panel putting pressure at the door trim clips. NEVER PRY BETWEEN THE CLIPS.
  2. Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the trim panel, align the clips in the panel with the holes in the door, then apply pressure on the panel over the clip until the clip snaps into place.

Deluxe Trim Disconnect the remote rod-to-lock knob assembly prior to lifting off the housing plate, to avoid possible damage to the lock knob assembly.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the screws from the door handle cup.
  3. If the car has an armrest courtesy lamp(s), remove the lens, then remove the bulb and wiring. Remove the pull cup.
  4. Reach through the pull cup opening and disconnect the remote lock rod from the lock knob.
  5. Remove the retaining screw and the remote mirror bezel nut from the power window regulator housing switch plate. Raise the plate to expose the window switch and power door lock switch and disconnect them.
  6. Remove the retaining screws from the armrest assembly.
Before proceeding to the next step, carefully inspect the door panel and make sure all the retaining screws have been removed.
  1. Using a wooden spatula or a panel puller (available at most automotive parts stores), pry around the trim panel putting pressure at the door trim clips. NEVER PRY BETWEEN THE CLIPS.
  2. Disconnect the speaker wiring and lift off the panel.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal. When installing the trim panel, align the clips in the panel with the holes in the door, then apply pressure on the panel over the clip until the clip snaps into place.
