I have my vehicle keys and they do not work.
What doesn’t work, the unlock button on the remote fob or the metal blade in the door?
A lot of people call us saying they can’t gain access to their vehicle because the car remote doesn’t work. So we say what’s wrong with the blade? At which point they say there is no blade.
Immediately I know they have a smart key in their hand and they have never seen the blade or door lock.
Simply open up your key to find your hidden key blade, and look underneath the door handle to see a little hole, put your key in the hole and pull it off. Now the lock is exposed. Simply put in the emergency blade and turn! Once the lock is open get inside the car and find the emergency start location for the keys.
All cars have an emergency start location for a keyless smart key. It can be the start button, on the side of the steering wheel or in the centre console. On cars like the Jaguar Xf, it can be down near the driver’s feet.
If you have done that and still have no start then it’s likely your car battery is dead, Are there any lights or symbols on the dash? what about the interior light? The keys can also be damaged, at this point, you’ll have to a car locksmith for roadside assistance.
