Put the key in the driver's door and while lifting up, turn the key. You may need to jiggle the handle and key a little but it should open.

I have forgotten the lights on my passat and the battery went dead. Now I can not unlock the doors with my key remote nor manually. How can I open the doors


You can always open the trunk and have someone small enough crawl through the trunk... as long as they are old enough to know how to unlock the door once inside (just pull on the door handle).

The key should work in the driver's door though... not sure why it won't.

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.

82 benz trunk wont open dead baterry


If you use the key to lock all the doors, the trunk locks also, so if you have a dead battery, you probably don't have vaccuum to open the locks, because all the locks are vaccuum activated. Charge or change the battery and start it up, after a few minutes you should be able to activate the door locks, thus unlocking your trunk.

Good luck...

Hi,

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.

The key should work even if there is no battery in vehicle. Have you tried both doors (or all doors with locks) Do you live where the temp is below freezing - could be frozen shut or locks frozen?

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

Locked out of car


If you have a jack and a battery charger, you can charge the battery from the starter wire. Connect the positive to the red wire on the starter, MAKE SURE IT'S THE STARTER WIRE AND NOT THE STARTER SOLENOID. You can connect the negative wire to ant ground on the frame. That should get some power back to your battery enough for the remote key to unlock the doors. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted. Glad to know your got in your car.
