Door lock problems - Canít open
Helping a friend with a Ď11 Elise SC
Fob releases lock with little silver plunger going up and down but door wonít open.
Looked through the threads and didnít find anything
Elise had a dead battery for a few months with the doors locked
Couldnít turn the key when in the locks (either side)
I connected a battery booster/charger box for power
Alarm light came on (flashing) with alarm sounding (trunk open)
Using the fob raised and lowered the silver plunger and made the lock thunking noise
However, with the Elise appearing to be unlocked, the door wouldnít open.
There was no resistance when depressing the door button.
And the door wouldnít open
Left the charger connected for about 20min and tried again
Locks seemed to open and close but couldnít open the door.
Not sure why the electrical deadlock would work but not the mechanical door mechanism.
