    I think you're going to have to call a locksmith.

    you might be able to get a cop to slim jim your door, depending on how nice they are around where you live.

    Also, i might try to get a coat hanger to slide inside the window... but i don't know how good that works on our cars. i know i could do it on my old sunfire gt

    leon...my 95 model has two seperate keys...one for door and one for ignition. I swear I have the weirdest most deformed V6 ever. But my keyless entry can't pop the locks open if the car has no power at all.

    Is there anyway you can get to the latch right above the horse in the front of your car? The latch that you pull to the left when you are trying to lift up your car normally?

    Is there a way I can get a "Door key" made from Ford? I have all the info on my car and such. I just really need a damn door key because this keyless entry crap pisses me off. Thanks for the help everybody.

    If the battery is dead, how will the keyless entry activate the clynoid to push the lock up? :wtf:

    Using a coat hanger wont work too well on our cars because the handle pulls out-wards.

    My advice... call AAA. Their roadside assistance is very helpful when you are locked out of your car.

    You could probably go to the Ford dealer and get a door key made or somethin.

    what about for popping the hood? if you could get a hanger down there, that pull towards you, so it would just be a matter of getting the hook around the handle?

    No. The hood is locked through a srpring machenisim which is enclosed inthe lock itself. I guess if you found the cable coming from the interior, you could splice the outside sheething and pull the cable. But I honestly dont know, I wouldnt try it.

    EDIT:
    Just reread the no keys part :)
    lol

    I was suggesting you go through the trunk... Is the trunk key the same as the door keys? or the ignition key?
