Can I unlock my car with ignition

1 Answer


Yes just the drivers door has a lock. It may not work because of lack of use. So make sure it locks and unlocks the door before you shut the locked door. Your key fob may just have a dead battery. Pop it open and change the battery. It will either be a 2032 or 2026 I do believe. If the metal retainer that holds the battery is lose or pulled away from the mother board have somebody solder it back on then you should be good to go.
