Battery dead and keyfarb unable to open door. Need advice on how to get hood open to charge battery
Locked car with keyfarb. Lights left on overnite. Now unable to open doors
with key or with remote keyfarb. Can't get hood open either. Any help on how
to bypass doors or open hood???? Need to charge battery & get into the car
You said you could not open the door with the key. Did you try it on the passenger side? Not likely the key would fail in both locks but I suppose it could be damaged somehow. You may be able to open the hood from the underside by either compressing the latch with a long screwdriver or loosening the mounting bolts/nuts and letting the latch come loose.
I have exactly the same problem. My battery is so dead that the manual key can't unlock the doors, which... someone should be fired over. I'm at a meter. It's snowing. Waiting for Nissan dealership to open so they can explain why I have my keys, a dead battery, a fully-charged Jump-n-Carry and a major crisis. Will try Taver's suggestions to try and pry open the hood.
Also there is only a keyhole on the drivers' side; mine is an '09
@taver91. You evidently don't have a clue what your talking about so please let someone who does answer the question, PLEASE
Did you ever find out why your manual key wouldn't work? My daughter had same issue. Key fob actually popped trunk so she could climb in to pop hood buy manual keys (both) would not work.
Had same problem with my daughters 2012 Murano. Fob would not unlock it. Only one key hole on drivers side. Key would not unlock it either. Whoever designed that needs to be looking for a job. Tow truck guy came and opened hood from outside and jumped it off. Battery was DEAD. This would be BAD if there was an emergency.
I only have a drivers side key entry. Neither key will even turn in it. The last time my battery died, my keycard worked. Didn't even know I had a key til now. I've had the car for over 3 yrs and no one told me. Battery is a yr old.
