100% use the ignition key in the drivers side door and turn it hard and keep turning towards the rear of the car while pulling up on the handle at the same time. It will eventually pop the door open . I've done several times on different Chevys ..

Not familiar with that vehicle, but sometimes if u can jack up the vehicle n get underneath u can manually open the hood by pushing on the locking latch...also if you have jumper cables u can run them from another battery to yours under the hood while ur underneath...b careful!! n always hook up positive FIRST!!...

SOURCE: Battery is dead. Doors are locked. Can't get into car.

I m a locksmith and had the same problem

What you do is:

HOld The handle up while you turn the key to the opening direction, it will feel as though it may bend the key but it will not.

keep pulling the handle until the button pops up it works I did it

SOURCE: Locked out

Connect jumper cables to the starter connection which should be visible under the car, hot to the bolted battery cable connection, negative to any ground. Connect the other end to a battery after you have crawled out from under the car.  Also consider; my BMW had the battery in the trunk, which should open with a key.

01 chrysler sebring convertible dead battery car wont unlock with key


try to reach up under the front of the car with your arm and try to locate the latch with the hood release cable attached to it. Use your fingers or plyers to manipulate the latch to release-pull on the cable. You may have to remove the grill to access it.

My 2007 chevrolet equinox has a dead battery and all doors and back trunk are lock, how can i open the hood to charge the battery to unlock the doors and trunk


If you can't unlock the door with a key, you may be able to go under the car and connect a jumper cable to the starter wire like you would to the battery.

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

2004 Volvo XC70 won't unlock


Put a battery charger on the starter cable from
under the car & ground the black charger lead
That will charge it enough to open the door & hood
Thought every car has at least one key cylinder on
drivers door !!

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..
