Absolutely. If the battery is dead there will be no power to active the door locks (since the door locks are electrically powered). Charge the battery or put jumpers on it, you will see that the door locks will come back to life (if that was the issue)
Possible just coincidence. The life expectancy of a battery is 5yrs. Anything over that could mean a bad battery. If battery is ok.. You need to do a parasitic draw test to check for a drain on the battery and circuits. If you are not famaliar with a volt/amp meter and electrical I would suggest having a pro take a look
you need a full charged battery or battery replaced [if battery bad and not holding charge] your remote key fob will not work if battery is dead or to weak to start car but key should be able to manually open drivers door --if its not an original key new cut or worn down [may have to jiggle in door ] your anti theft/security lock will come on when you use key in door than you have a few seconds after you open door to put key in ignition and turn to on position before alarm goes off but you need to get battery issue corrected first if key still doesnt work may need to have assistance [slimjim]lock to get in
Electrical problem in cars can be a real bear to troubleshoot. Suggestions are a leak to ground draining the battery. Bad battery a possibility but this wouldn't explain the other problems. Check that you have good grounds and connections. This kind of problem can have pros scratching their heads but a good one might zero right in on the problem.
Hold up on your door handle like you're opening the door and then pull that piece up with your finger or a screwdriver. It will be stuck until you tell it to release, just like you're opening the door. Then charge your battery and you'll be good as new.
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..
Buy a new battery
Take the battery to a recharge center and ask them to remove the old battery water let it dry and test it if it can still hold some voltage. Replace with diluted acid with water as the battery is on the charge.
Check also if your car can still charge the battery coz that could be also the problem
when you battery goes dead, the security system locks the car. When you charge the bathery, use the key to lock the door and hold until the alarm activates. open your door and you can now start your car...firstname.lastname@example.org
Pls explain if you have electric door locks or not. A seized solenoid (if you do) will preevnt the latch from working...Regardless of whether you do or not, anything wrong with the alternator will give not you door lock issues. You problem is purely mechanical. The electronic function (option) just assists the mechanical (non-powered) door locks. The doors should work; (the lock/unlock/open/close) even with the battery disconnected, using the manual controls.
