Why on Earth can I not use the key to Lock or Unlock the door?
From what I understand, I have the option of not activating the alarm, and being able to activate the locks mechanically (with the key). When I insert my key into the door lock, it turns without any resistance, and nothing happens. The only way to activate my locks is with the key FOB. Im scared to death im going to get stranded somewhere with a dead FOB, or drained battery.
I work a schedule where im away from the house for a week at a time, and this car came supplied with an aftermarket battery. Its parked outside with no outlets. How can I assure that the battery remains charged without a tender? Can I de-activate the alarm with the key FOB, and just disconnect the negative terminal from the battery?
I ordered a solar powered tender, about to order an emergency touch key, and probably need to get a new FOB battery (not sure where to order this).
Any help as to why my keys wont unlock or lock my doors will be greatly appreciated.
