well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I don't know why it won't work manually but do you possibly have to reprogram the fob? See if the owners manual has something about that.

Nothing about reprogramming the fob. I'm more concerned about the lock not turning. I went ahead and sprayed some lock de-icer and pb blaster in there just in case, but it didn't work. Could it be a dead battery and the lock cylinder is electronic?

Is it just one door or both?

The keyed aspect of the doors are strictly mechanical as far as I know. My guess would be that your key was not cut correctly for the lock cylinder.

Yes to both. If the battery is dead or has been disconnected, you still can't unlock the doors even with the key. You should be able to unlock the trunk with the key but that won't help you gain entry to the car unless you have the rear seat folded down. Otherwise your only choice will be to call an approved locksmith to break into the car using "specialist tools".

Only the drivers door has a lock cylinder. Neither key will turn the lock. I called ford and a tow truck is on the way. The dealerships going to have fun with this.

Went back to the car this morning and tried it again. The keyless still doesn't work but the key turned the lock. Started right up and drove it home. Now the keyless does work.

Might want to leave the back seat down so you can get in through the trunk next time.

That's weird that the key wouldn't turn the cylinder then would. Any chance you grabbed the wrong set of keys?

I grabbed the keys to my 2000 by mistake to get in the 2008 once. the key fit but dint turn the trunk cylinder.

Nope. The other car I have is an old grand am. Completely different key style. I'm sure this car is cursed so I'm chalking it up to bad luck. It goes to the dealership Monday to have the lock actuator and electrical system checked.
