My friend was trapped inside her 1998 Buick Park Avenue for hours because the battery was dead and wouldn't unlock the door.

You mean the electric switch? If there had been any power, she could have at least rolled down the window. She said there wasn't enough of the manual lock post exposed to grasp either. It just struck me as a safety hazard.


Pulling on the interior door handle wouldn't open it?

Negative. That's what I find troubling. Without a drop of current in the battery, she sat at the side of the road for three hours until someone stopped to help - and all they could do was make a cell call.


Wow, good thing it was not really hot outside.
