Common Reasons Why Your Car Door Isn't Locking Properly The key fob battery is dead: This is one of the most common reasons why your car door lock is not working. If your locks aren't working, replacing the battery in the key fob could solve the issue. The key fob is faulty: If the battery isn't the problem, the issue may be with the fob itself. If you go to your car dealer, they can hook the fob up to a computer and make sure that the programming is still good. If it's not sending a signal, the fob will likely have to be replaced. A fuse is blown: If one door doesn't work, but others do, the problem could be a blown fuse. Replacing the fuse will correct the problem. This is a cheap and easy fix The solenoid is bad: Again, if one door doesn't work, but others do, the problem could be with the door lock solenoid. Replacing it may require removing the car door panel You have a broken wire: If the lock isn't getting power, hold the lock switch either up or down, and then open and close the door repeatedly to see if the lock will work. If it works sometimes, you probably have a broken wire

2005 Mustang wont start or crank from the key.. wont say nothing good battery ..... all I hear is clicking noise my radio and lights and everything comes on but it will not do nothing what couldthis be have I blown something?
Check the door lock fuse in the fuse panel... try the key on another door... may just be that the manual lk is malfunctioning on that door... if the other doors don't respond and the fuse is good then the key probably needs to be reprogrammed by the dealer to the door... happens when your battery dies or is replaced.
Will the switch on the door lock or unlock the doors, if so check the battery in your remote, it may be dead. Remove the key remote from your keychain and there is a slot in the end of the remote that will open it up so you can gain access to your battery. Pay close attention to the way the battery is installed before removing it. Replace the battery and try the door locks again. If they work, then you have solved the problem. If not, you have an electrical problem that you will have to trace down. From the information you have given, this is all I can tell you without seeing the car for myself.
I wish you luck, I hope this helps you find the problem.
The fuse to the power door lock/unlock motors has blown. In order to get into the car and start it, can't you just unlock the door with the key - then start it with the same key? In the worst case, disconnecting the battery will disable the car alarm, so it can be towed without the alarm blaring.
Hi, if all of the locks on your Mercedes fail to open (or close) first check your key fob to make certain that its battery is working. Replace the worn out battery, if necessary. If key fob is working, you may have a faulty key fob, which can be repaired or replaced by taking it to your dealer.
If just one lock won't open on your Mercedes, then the problem may rest with broken wiring, a bad solenoid, or perhaps with a blown fuse. Check your fuse box first to determine if a blown fuse is keeping the lock from working. If so, replace the fuse.
You likely have a shorted door lock actuator, which you can replace with a new unit for the lock that is not working. If a door unlocks, but will not lock again, then replace the door switch.
Besides there is not OBD II 888 code, i have never heard or seen it before...
I had a very similar situation. Was very annoying not being able to unlock or lock doors from pannel control nor from remote.
Only driver door can be opened with manual key.
Solution: One of the 15 amp purple fuses was blown. Fuses are located inside glove compartment, the interior end has to be removed releasing the two locks.
Use a light and the red tool located on the panel to remove fuses.
The battery dead? Remove the battery cables and wait and then see if the key will turn. If it will not remove the key ( will it come out?) the key can be the wrong one ( maybe) you can have a blown fuse. Any fuse so you need to check them all. If the key will turn with the battery disconnected then put the car in park and turn the key off and remove it from the car. with the window down and the doors all closed and the hod open reconnect the known good ( charged Battery) with the battery connected don't open the door but reach in and put the key in and start the car. the doors should lock when the engine starts. reach in and unlock the door and get in and close the door. then turn the car off and remove the key get out and close the door and lock it with the key. wait a minute and then unlock the door with the key get in and drive away like normal. do everything though or you'll unset the reset cycle. Make shure that the break lights work as they control the unlocking feature of the collum.
Does your key have a chip? Some keys have a chip that is part of the cars' anti-theft system....they can go bad or be damaged; these types of keys can be replaced and re-programmed. If the key opens the passenger door or the hatch and not the driver's door check the wiring and locking mechanism for that door. You might also check if there is a fuse or relay switch/sensor for it....sometimes cleaning the main lock switch inside the car and checking that the wires have a good connection will solve the problem. Posting more info about the problem and if there was any type of work (battery replaced?) or other problems before this happened would be extremely helpful. Good Luck!
