Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

Key not opening driver's side door when battery is dead

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport and my battery completely died today, while I was driving. I pulled it into a parking lot and got a ride home, but when I went back to try and jump my car, my key would not work in the driver's side door. The remote or keypad would not work either...what do I do now??? Please help!

Well your car is equiped with a electronic chip in the key and if the car has no power the key cannot "talk" to the main computer in the car.

Hope you find what you are your looking for! Good Luck!

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport. It sometimes stalls when coming to a stop. Ussually after driving several miles. It will restart in park and idle fine. But as soon as I shift it into drive it will die....

Go to a local transmission shop, an independant if possible, and ask them to test drive your vehicle.This is a more common problem with GM vehicles, but it sounds as though your trans may not be coming out of lockup, causing a situation very similar to pulling up to a stop with a manual trans , and not depressing the clutch. Lockup is designed to kick in at cruise speeds, and remove all slippage from an auto trans, thereby improving milage. Sometimes the trans will not unlock. The good news is that many times, it's not a incredibly expensive repair. Good luck!
