Customer Question

Hi - I think I have a dead battery on my 2013 Ford Focus ST (it has been sitting in cold weather for about 3 weeks). I cannot unlock the driver door with the fob, or the key. Looking for a way to get it open
JA: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?
Customer: No - not sure how to get the hood open without getting into the car
JA: Are you fixing your Focus ST yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: NO!! I can barely open the hood! Just trying to get into it
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not that I know of...just wondering why the key will not work in my door

You may have got ice inside the door lock and need to heat the key several times and insert into lock to free it up. A hair drier on the lock for a few minutes may free the lock also. Once you are in then you will need to get a jump start or charge the battery.
