Question about 2003 Dodge Viper
When I parked my Dodge Viper for the winter I left the keys in the ignition and the doors unlocked. It appears the battery went dead over the winter and I cannot get into the car as there are no manual door locks on the Viper. I put in a new battery and still cannot get any power to open the doors. I do not want to have to break a window to get into the car as I live on an acreage 50 miles from the closest town.
A mobile service tech can slim jim his way into your car without breaking a window.
Once in you can see where you stand with the car.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.
The key lock/unlock for doors are powered by the batteries in the remote, while the ignition key draws its energy from the vehicle via induction. Since the battery is dead you are having this problem. You need to call assistance from the nearby auto shop or a locksmith. I guess you don't have any other option.
