Q: All my car doors are locked. The key won't unlock them. I have no key fob

asked by on March 14, 2017

All of my car doors are stuck in the lock position. I do not have a key fob. The key does not unlock the doors.

My car has 78000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the key will not unlock the door then you may need to have a service to come and unlock the doors for you. I would recommend getting a key cut to open the door and get a key FOB and have it programmed. You may have issues that require the body control system to be repaired and recommend having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic test and repair the system for you.
