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!

My radio is dead after a battery change, could it be the fuse and i cant tell the smbol on the fuse card if it is


I have exactly the same problem. Just changed battery today on 2002 VW Golf TDI, and the radio is completely dead. Checked the fuse - looks fine. (Fuse 42 incidentally. Fuses are on the side of the driver's dash facing the door ie. only accessible once the door is open). Anyone know why the radio has completely died?

Spray some WD-40 into the key cylinders and then try working the key. The locks seize up because you keep using the FOBs.
