Question about 2008 Ford Taurus X
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.
