gotta say i'm skeptical...don't understand how it wouldn't open with a key - how about key in boot?...you tried that?

The boot doesn't HAVE a key Homes...

Anyway, I agree with Homes in the fact that something doesn't sound right, the key should at the very least unlock the driver door and allow it to be opened, unless something has snapped and disconnected the lock cylinder; but that's not an easy thing to have happen.

Sorry mate, I've got no idea on how to help.

Do the indicators light up when you press the unlock on the remote?

pull the top of the door out enough to slip a long rod in. You can use a thick coathanger so it is straight and with a hook on one end. get a mate to pry the top of the door out enough to slip this long hook in and hook it in the door handle, if you pull it back the handle will open slightly then twist the wire so it opens the door from the inside handle. easy and fast.

remote wont work ok, key doesnt work, dunno, what bout the passenger side door, the key should work somewhere to at least unlock one door even if the car battery is flat. unless your ignition barrel has been changed and your key is for the ignition only. this may be the case if what your saying is true.
