    none of the doors or trunk will open with a key? Maybe get a locksmith out to open the door with a "slim jim"....once the car is unlocked, you can open the hood to replace or jump the battery.

How do I unlock & open drivers side door, when key & key fab won't work?


Why won't key work in door? Most likely not used? Spray wd-40 in door lock and insert key moving it back and forth in a sawing motion. This will usually free up a sticky lock and you can then turn it. Most lock out companies use a long metal rod. They will pry back the top of the door where it meets the roof and insert a wedge to hold the door slightly ajar and then insert the rod which has a hook to catch the lock and unlock it. A coat hanger unfolded will usually do the trick with a little patience. If not, the only other way is to disassemble the inner door panel ( usually causing damage ) to get the door open

Remote door lock sensor


you have a FAB sensor that is going out, seen this alot of times. there is a little black box under the dash, depending on vehicle that controls the key fabs, how many you have, and the functions of each. the FAB sensor is pretty much the brains of the FAB system and it is about the size of your palm or smaller. best thing is to just have it replaced. they go anywhere from $80 to $175 depending on the functions and if it needs to be programmed specifically to your vehicle. hope this helps

Beep does not sounds when locking


Very possible. Each lock has to fully complete it's movement in order to send an "all lock" signal to transceiver. If not, you may wake to a dead battery as the alarm retries the last command to lock repeatedly.

Everything is dead in my vehicle. There were no symptoms or indicatior lights prior to this. The key fob won't engage


this is due to a dead battery, the problem is getting into the car to connect jumper cables to try and start the car, alot of these cars are all eclectronic controllled and the key fob is what controls door locks and starting but with a dead battery it cant communicate with computer, if the doors are locked and theres no lock on the door to unlock it then you will need to have AAA unlock it with a tool that goes inside to release lock and then gain acess to battery and replace it or jump it, and go from there, it may just be a bad battery or something was left on like a light but most of these cars have an anti drain module which will shut power down if something is left on until the engine is started. good luck and hope this helps.
