perhaps the switch behind the door is defect.
Or just the contacts a bit dirty? Try opening and closing the battery door several times. Make sure you hear the switch click. If it won't help, visit a repair centre.
The battery dead? Remove the battery cables and wait and then see if the key will turn. If it will not remove the key ( will it come out?) the key can be the wrong one ( maybe) you can have a blown fuse. Any fuse so you need to check them all. If the key will turn with the battery disconnected then put the car in park and turn the key off and remove it from the car. with the window down and the doors all closed and the hod open reconnect the known good ( charged Battery) with the battery connected don't open the door but reach in and put the key in and start the car. the doors should lock when the engine starts. reach in and unlock the door and get in and close the door. then turn the car off and remove the key get out and close the door and lock it with the key. wait a minute and then unlock the door with the key get in and drive away like normal. do everything though or you'll unset the reset cycle. Make shure that the break lights work as they control the unlocking feature of the collum.
you need to disarm the alarm. unplugging batt. or dead battery being jumped sets of the alarm not all alarms make noise
use remote to lockand then unlock doors need to be closed
or lock then unlock door with key if it dont reset then try passenger door
if you turn off the switch for the interior lights,an override,it will prevent the battery from going dead until you can get the door alignment or switch repaired.the interior lights,there is more than 5 will kill the battery for sure.
I just posted my experience in another place on this site but on my 1992 PA the accessories relay stuck closed. This relay is the one that allows you to listen to the radio etc and keep things on until you open the door then all shuts off. When it is stuck closed accessories keep running until your battery drains dead. The relay was replaced and all worked great.
Try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes. then when you reconnect the battery lock and unlock the drivers door with the key, door closed. this will on some models deactivate the anti theft system. but it must be done with the hood closed and all the doors closed and from outside with the key. mike
when the bat is fully charged , open the bonnet and remove one of the bat. post connections. With the key off (like it is when it sits and dies) and the doors and etc. closed , fan off , radio off.... place the cable you took off on the bat post . if there is a spark or anything... report back.
Also , listen for anything under the bonnet when you do this...
