Answer 2
Same thing happened to me. None of my doors would open. Awful thought if I was in an accident, huh. They changed the general module and so far all is fine. It began with the key not working. It wouldn't unlock the doors, so I had to do it manually, then it would lock me in and I couldn't get out once I stopped the car. Quite scary. I wondered if anyone else had had this issue. I had the dealer check for recalls, of course there were none. -
