    I went to drive my father's 360 today and not only is the battery dead, but the car is locked (in his condo garage), and will not open with the key. Any suggestions???

    Thanks,

    Very simple, apply extra hard pressure on the key in the unlock direction, voila it's open!!

    That doesn't work if the battery is too dead to bring the window down, does it?

    A friend has mentioned to me that if the tiny battery in the key itself is dead the locks won't open. You might try replacing the key battery.

    "That doesn't work if the battery is too dead to bring the window down, does it?"

    The key should allow you to unlatch the door. Then you're going to have to carefully force the door open because of the window being fully up. I had to do this with a 911 - it's nerve wracking!
