SOURCE: cant get in car to pop hood, dead battery key hole jammed!!

at this point you have 2 options, 1, go to a parts store and get a jimmy kit that helps you break into the car by unlocking the door, whicch sometimes can be tricky or if you have aaa they will unlock it for you for free, 2, you would have to reach from underneath and feel around for the cable, folow it to the latch assembaly and carefully release the latch assembaly, this way wil be very difficult and a tight area.
Good Luck.

This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

SOURCE: 2002 ford escape liftgate wont lock/unlock

either the motor that locks it is not working or some mice might have chewed some wires or something. first you will want to see if you have power going to the lock under the panel if yuou do then your lock motor is bad and needs replaced if you dont have power you need to check fuses if that still dont work u need to find out where your power stops at

OK different model but at least one other ford car owner is confirming that car will not open with key dead battery.

I suggest using a little effort on the key. Do not break the key!!!.
In the following forum the owner indicated a different feel as if the mechanical lock was maybe interacting with the anti theft system!!

I O course make sure you have the right key!!! whi knows keys can get mixed up.

If the battery is dead I might consider searcing under the car for the starter motor battery connection and charging the battery. Least risk.

Opening hood with jimmy tool is possible. I would find a similar Edge and practice with the hood jimmy tool with the hood open before I would tear up the finish trying to open the hood

With the VIN number in hand I might go back to dealer and confirm key!!!

Good Luck

Door locks and dead battery


See if you can get jumper cables on the car. Hot one on the starter post where battery connects, and negative to a frame piece. You may get enough juice flowing to get the doors unlocked.

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..

Cant open the door from the outside when its locked


The electric locks will have to have some charge in the battery before they will work. Even if you have a keypad entry system, you need some power. Can you connect cable to battery positive from below car? Or is hood open? If you can connect from underneath car, go to positive terminal on battery, and ground anywhere on the frame, then try your remote entry. And, where's your door key? Take a lock out, and have the local dealership cut you one. It was only $ 5.00. I just had one made.
