Hi everyone,

I have faced the same problem and found a solution.

So, it's all related to battery and it can be solved easily. If the both remote and mechanical key is not working then may be this might be the solution.

I have recently changed the battery of the car and for sure its not battery dead issue. Its seems the car resets on a new battery if the car is not used for a month.

Please make sure to call a mech or if you know, open up the bonnet from under car. Disconnect the negative of the battery and reconnect it after 10secs.

This will mostly reset the remote calling option.

Also change ur remote battery just incase.

If any of you still facing this issue then try this
Dip your car key in Mobil oil if you have or else you can try mustard oil too
then insert your car key in keyhole and rotate left-right for about 20times
if not succussed then repeat the process (including dipping your key in oil)
I tried 3-4 times and worked

Faced similar problem on 27-08-2020. Door could not be opened by manual key as well as remote key, despite repeated attempts. One gentleman from FORD service centre suggested to insert the key and rotate few times while simultaneously pressing the door inward at the location of keyhole- lock location. I did the same. Thankfully, it worked. Since then the door lock is working normal by both manual as well as remote key.

Further, just to mention, i was also advised to try to lift the door will simultaneously rotating the key. However, this was not required for me.

Above helped me. Hope it works for others also in case of such difficulty.

My thanks are to the gentleman who gave me the above advice on phone.

I also faced same issue. Somehow I managed to open the driver door inserting wire and using inflator bag in order to make space between door and fender to insert the wire. Later I inserted wire and manged to reach the door opening lach from inside and opened the door.
But now I am not able to lock My car because remote is not working and manual slot is also jammed and key is not moving too and fro.
My battery is ok and even remote battery is new. Later I tried to program my remote key by moving the key in keyslot 4 times to ignition point as mentioned in maual. But still remote is not working

Hi,
I too faced same problem after I left the car unused for more than 1 month. Was unable to open with wireless key but maually it got opend. The reason was my battery was completely dead and had to charge it fully again. After that it is now working fine.

I too had the same prob once, Its because car Driver door key insert is damaged & its not recognizing your car key. Till now you were unaware because you would have used your remote for unlocking & locking the car and now your car battery is also down, since there is only one key insert in ford figo, you are stuck. You have to open bonnet from below the car & remove car's battery and recharge it or you can use jumper cable & connect with someother car's battery & press unlock button in the remote at same time....Your car door will open & You can start the car using jumper cable now & keep it idle for 10 - 15 mins & take the car to garage.
Hope it helps
