I don't know... but wouldn't it be neat to install one of those battery connectors like they use to charge a forklift or a janitorial auto-scrub sticking out the front grill. Sometimes companies that do highway assistance have one that they can plug in a set of booster cables in in a hurry. Maybe next time!

SOURCE: cant get in car to pop hood, dead battery key hole jammed!!

at this point you have 2 options, 1, go to a parts store and get a jimmy kit that helps you break into the car by unlocking the door, whicch sometimes can be tricky or if you have aaa they will unlock it for you for free, 2, you would have to reach from underneath and feel around for the cable, folow it to the latch assembaly and carefully release the latch assembaly, this way wil be very difficult and a tight area.
Good Luck.

OK different model but at least one other ford car owner is confirming that car will not open with key dead battery.

I suggest using a little effort on the key. Do not break the key!!!.
In the following forum the owner indicated a different feel as if the mechanical lock was maybe interacting with the anti theft system!!

I O course make sure you have the right key!!! whi knows keys can get mixed up.

If the battery is dead I might consider searcing under the car for the starter motor battery connection and charging the battery. Least risk.

Opening hood with jimmy tool is possible. I would find a similar Edge and practice with the hood jimmy tool with the hood open before I would tear up the finish trying to open the hood

With the VIN number in hand I might go back to dealer and confirm key!!!

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

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..
