Good luck! , The key fob has an actual key inside that slides out of the remote which you can then use to open the door should the remote not work. I had the same thing happen to me when I first owned our 2008. There is a tiny lever on the front of the remote that slides over "unlocking" the key inside so that you may slide it out to open your door. The loop on the end of the remote for your key ring is attached to the end of the hidden key. I know this is too late to help the person posting the question but perhaps it will help someone else who finds themselves in the same situation. You'll need to replace the button cell battery inside, which in itself is a pain. The design makes it quite difficult to remove the battery. My husband ended up using needle nose pliers to carefully pull the battery out. , I believe the doors have to be unlocked before the remote can open them. If they are not unlocking by remote, it seems a common solution is to remove the IDO fuse in the fuse box under the hood, and simply put it back in. This resets the electronic problems and seems to allow everything to work again. If the problem reoccurs regularly it may be because one or more locks are not functioning properly causing the system to shut them down. Lubrication usually works well. , I have had the same type of problem and the only way I could open it was to remove the plastic panel on the inside of the lift gate and manually open it.( One can look down inside to see where the latching mechanism is and move the lever. ) Then i had to re-attach the lock mechanism arm to the latch.. You can also check to see if you are getting electricity at the solinoid at the same time, and get a new one from the parts house or dealer. Hope this helps you, Rick , you will need the dealership diagnostic tool to program the remote , Check the designated fuse as detailed in the manual for your vehicle.
