EDIT: I just reread the dialog here and mixed two different response to get the answer below. Are you using the correct key? If you are there has to be a mechanical failure inside the door if it will not open - Unless you have been in the door, this is not likely.All,

Recently my battery died and was unable to open the door manually with the Fob stem. Had to call road assistance to open the door. Normally, I opened the car with the Fob, and this works well providing the battery is not dead. I tried opening the door after replacing the battery but still unsuccessful. No other problem with the Fob except not able to open the door. I have 2 Fobs but unable to manually open the door.
Any suggestion to fix the situation will be great.
Many thanks, Shawn
1. Step on the brake and hold it
2. Grasp the wheel about 1 o'clock with your left hand and try to rotate counterclockwise
3. Turn the key
Never use oils in the ignition or on the key, Use some compressed air to somewhat dry it out. Use graphite instead.
