You can use a slim Jim or get a mechanic to open the door for you. If the battery went dead check to see if your altanator is good and once it's started pull bulb out of glove box compartment and see if that keeps the battery from going dead. Aslo remove the trunk Light to test.

This engine has two turbochargers to make intake manifold pressure for power and response. It sounds like one of the turbos is not preforming and building up intake pressure quick enough. The dealer should have been able to pressure check and isolate which turbo is not working. take it back or to another dealer and say check my turbos and wastegates.

Mercedes e220cdi 2003 battery is totally dead can't open doors or boot to change battery. have got key fob with infra red so no actual metal key to manually open door. help as i need to sell this car.

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.

Car seems totally dead, not even hazzard lights work, key fobs dont open doors, was fine till i came out this morning, nothing left on overnight car is 2009 e220cdi

You could have left nothing on thats true, but the alternator can short out your car as well. It would be the next thing I'd check. Check the positive cable that goes from you battery to the alternator. Check it at the alternator to the ground for resistance. Should not give you a reading, if it does, alternator is shorting.

Hyundai Sonata 2001, was left with a door ajar

i would suggest you recharge the battery overnight, this should stop the hazzard lights activating as they do when battery level is too low.

I had a similar problem with my car and was advised that the ESP and BAS normally come out as a direct result of the low voltage on the battery.Chances are your battery life has expired. Replace your battery with a new one. To remove the ESP you need to start your engine, turn the steering wheel all the way to left and right, repeat this a couple of times, switch off and restart your car.Make sure you don't leave your lightsand wipers on the auto position as this sometimes drains your buttery power unnecessarily. These simple steps should take away the frustration and make you enjoy your car again.

2001 Pontiac Bonneville won't start

have you not left any load on overnight? park light or left the door partially open and the dome light would be left on?

have the battery recharge and the next night, make sure that no light would be left on the car.

if it would drain out again, have it recharged again, use it and on the night, make sure no light is left on the car, then remove the positive pole on the battery overnight.

the next morning, put the positive cable back and start the car.

if the car would start, then no problem with the battery, if the car would not start, then return the battery because it is defective.

tnx 4 using fixya,
