SOURCE: Battery dead; cannot open hood

If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)

SOURCE: mercedes e220cdi 2003 battery is

This is a very serious situation as there are only a few ways you can go about this.
The surest way out of this is to call a mechanic over and have him help you open the lock from outside.
He can do this by picking the lock or by working on the door panel.
There is no other secure method as the car would not come on neither will it open.
hope this helped you? Please comment for more information.

Dead battery on 2004 mountaineer and can't open doors.


I thought this vehicle has an actual key (not just a fob) that goes in the ignition switch. So the same key should manually open the doors also...
If you cannot open the door with the key for some reason ... there is always the coat hanger trick ... or call AAA:

Battery is DEAD on 2003 Ford Escape! Door key (using an actual key) unlock is also motorized, which needs battery juice. I can't get into this car! I thought about putting jumper cables on the sta


Open the door manually with the key!

Many Ford Escapes have power door locks as standard equipment. This system consists of a lock switch, lock actuator and wiring harness. When you depress the lock switch, it sends an electronic signal through the harness to the actuator. The actuator moves an internal piston that either pulls the actuator hook down or pushes it up. The actuator hook connects to the lock rod, which either locks or unlocks the door, depending on which way you push the lock button. While this system won't work with a dead battery, the mechanical lock system remains unaffected by electrical power loss.

Insert the door lock key into the driver's door lock.
Turn the key counterclockwise one quarter turn.
Pull the door handle up until the Escape's door opens. Once the driver door is open, simply open the remaining doors by pulling the interior door handles until the doors open.

Pontiac Vibe is locked with no battery. How to unlock doors? Key doesn't work the locks.


I had the same problem yesterday. I removed the battery (that was near dead) to take to get tested, but I had locked the doors and closed the hood before leaving. When I got back with the new battery the key fob wouldn't work, and the key would not manually open the doors. I ended up having a mechanic friend reach up under the front of the car to manually release the hood (it took him about 20 minutes to figure it out), replaced the battery, and then the key fob worked again. I'm not sure why the keys wouldn't work in the door - any ideas there?
