Can't open car with fob or manually

Recommended Posts

Hi new member here

I have a 2013 Toyota Yaris and I'm not able to get into the car using the fob or key. I suspect the Battery may have died.

Any ideas about how I can get the bonnet open from the outside?

The lock will be gummed up from years of not being used, it needs a good soak with some lube you may also need a pair of piers to turn the key in the lock if it's the small key you slide out of the fob

work it backwards and forwards to work the lube in

Wd -40 spray few times, then few hours later spray again and try with the service key if it won’t turn, spray one more time and leave it for next day to try again, should work then. I use to lube that lock once every few months as preventative measure in case I need to use it for an emergency unlock.
