Nope. That didnt work. I tried to turn the key in both directions and the trunk didnt open. I used force, in both directions. Since that didnt work, doesnt it mean the alarm system disabled the electrical system and therefore made it so I can open any door or trunk? If so, how do I reset the alarm system so I can get into my car.
If you dont think it is an alarm issue, how do I get power to my car so I can open a door or a trunk? It appears my car needs some power in order to open the door or the trunk.
Again, this is ridiculous that I cant manually open a door or trunk with a key.
By the way I tried to turn the manually in the driver side door in both directions with force and that didnt work either.
Help! Any other suggestions? Jim
Hi Not sure what to tell you the alarm system does not lock you out of your car manually. To reset the alarm you use your key unlock and lock buttons. If there is no battery power that will not work. The alarm CAN NOT LOCK YOU OUT OF THE CAR IF YOU USE YOUR KEY!! USEING IT IN THE LOCK CYCLINDER IS MANUAL DOES NOT NEED POWER AND ALARM DOES NOT BLOCK IT IN ANY WAY!! Mike
