Without touching anything else, touch a jumper lead to the large terminal of the starter. Before doing that, attach a ground lead between the jumper battery and any solid metal part of the frame etc. That will power up the electronics and let you open it up. It's sometimes best to use a screwdriver attached to the end of the positive lead and use it as a probe. It is a bit easier to keep it from sparking on anything by accident.

The driver's side door will not lock or unlock via remote control. What is the solution for this? All other doors lock/unlock when remote is used.


is it freezing there? (ice happens)
car drives perfectly day and night? (tells me battery not dead or weak)

does outside metal key work, does inside lock lever work?
if not its frozen inside.

ill assume the 2 mech, ways work and solenoid is dead.
get car serviced?
do you have tools, and skills?
yes/no?

this, its a solenoid. seen below. inside the door.

The FOB battery weak can cause this, try both fobs yet.
one door RKE receiver (hidden below) can be weaker or stronger.
and may fail if the RKE (fob) is weak. Rem.key entry=RKE
so a new battery in the fob is a now thing.
22year old FBO battery? hopeless if ever.
ok if the manual doors work ok and only a good fob fails (both)
(car came with 2 so...)
then the problems is below.
here is an example of how complex it can be. and real solutions.
93-97 location. reciever.
Just pry up the defroster grille panel and it will be on the passenger side, held in by 2 screws.
scan the PCM first. looking for RKE errors, BCM errors>?
if 12vdc does not reach the solenoid,
then the Door controller failed or the BCm fail to sen the command or the remote receiver (entry) module never sent it.
my guess is the RER is ok, as it opened other doors.
so that leaves, BCM mess up. or soldenoid bad.

here is the receiver. that is failing, if 2 fresh fobs fail.
fresh batteries.
some green PCB below are in overhead lamp module
others are in door, (sun roof?)

i think this is 1999.

Tip

Door lock cause of dead battery


A dead battery, one recent cold morning, found me at the service shop. Tests indicated the system was charging properly with no battery drain. I asked if the test were done with the doors locked. They were not. A second test (car locked), revealed a misaligned trunk lock switch. Switch repaired, battery charged, problem solved.

Will a dead battery in a 2002 dodge grand caravan, affect if the car fob can open the doors?


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)

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.

You always have a key cylinder on the drivers door

lead to the subframe & try charging the dead & worn out

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

Battery dead and key is locked in truck 05 sportrack. keyless entry wont work because battery is dead


OK. Here goes; look at the ground wire on any utility pole. Go to Home Depot, Lowe's or the like and purchase a 4 foot peice of wire like the ground wire (steel not copper). Bend one end 90 degrees at about 6 inches of length. Then bend a slow curve in the entire length of the wire. Purchase 2 rubber door stops. Grasp the top right edge of your car door and gently pull outward. Insert a door stop. Place the other door stop at the top of the door and lightly hit it with the heel of your hand. What you are doing is opening the door JUST ENOUGH to insert the wire without damaging the weather stripping. Now use the wire to either pull the door handle or pull the lock to the open position.
