Question about 2008 Ford Taurus X

3 Answers

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 how I found out the battery is dead.

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..

That's a tough one...you could call a tow truck, most drivers carry 'slim jim's' that can get the door open, then pop the hood and charge the battery-you could try to go under the front of the car and figure out a way to get to the hood cable, maybe remove the grill...you really don't have a lot of options there, but a locksmith will get into the car, call around. Why doesn't your key open the doors (both sides?)

You could call pop-a-lock, have them unlock your car, then raise the hood and take the battery out to have it tested. You may have an alternator issue.

Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


You can't unless it has a key hole. If you put jump leads on the battery or connect a battery charger it will open straight away.

My 2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE key fob won't


So did you fix your problem? I'm now having the same exact problem. The key simply doesn't work; HOWEVER, I know the key is not dead. I also have a 2008 LR2 and there is no "Battery" in the key fob. I compained countless times to the dealer that the key would just stop unlocking doors on me. They told me the battery charges when it is in the ignition but there is no battery to replace. They recommeded I rotate my main and spare key to make sure they're both always charged. Well, I do, and same problem.

This problem started one year ago and I complained that I should not have to spend $500 for them to replace the key... because a 3-year-old key SHOULD NOT be dying. And not to mention, a large chunk of that $500 is for them to "program" the key.

I have an appointment on Friday at a certified Land Rover repair shop but NOT the dealer. The shop I called said the '08 LR2 has "huge key issues." I have had it with Land Rover and their lack of interest in helping deal with the problem, which I might add is clearly THEIR problem, if so many are having similar problems.

I will post an update after my appointment Friday.

Won't open my door when I press unlock, key won't open door either


can you manually unlock the lock and open the door?? Is it more than one door or just one specific door? If its just one door, yourcactuator inside the door may be bad or you have a wire issue. If its all the doors, more than likely you blew a fuse or a relay(id say fuse)

I have a 2008 ford fusion along with 2002 ford taurus. Just for the testing purposes I was trying to program the taurus keyless remote into the fusion, and now the single keyless remote is working on both...


cycle your ignition 8 times on and off really fast then on the eight time you cycle the door locks should lock and unlock,then hit the lock and unlock button on your fob that should set it just for one car. if you try to reset the fusion key your dealer will charge you alot of money
