      I'm about to set fire to my fucking car, grab a lawn chair and a hoppy ass IPA and watch it fucking burn. It sat for a week while we had all of that snow. I go to drive it today, put the key in the trunk, turn and it won't unlock. I can hear it trying, but no go. I threw my DMM on the battery and it was just under 12V, so I figured the battery might be dead. I grabbed the F150, hooked up jumpers and it still won't fucking unlock (has ~14.5V at the battery with the jumpers hooked up). I shaved my door locks when I painted my car, so I rely on the central locking.

      I pulled the plug to the lock motor in the trunk and threw the DMM on there. With the jumpers hooked up it had 9V at the plug (14.5 at battery). So I hooked up a couple jumpers and jumped the ground and Green/violet (unlock signal) wire thinking I could pop the locks that way, but nothing happened. I am now at a loss and will probably have to call a tow truck to come and slim jim it or whatever they do.

      Any ideas as to what could be going on here? Did the cold weather somehow manage to kill BOTH of the motors in the doors? When I cycle the trunk motor with everything hooked up, I can hear the motor in the door, but it doesn't throw up the lock... so I assume that the central locking unit is functional.

        Do you have a trickle charger? Toss the battery on overnight and come back to it in the morning. If you're rocking tiny jumper cables (I tend to think any jumper cable under 0g is tiny...) then the voltage will be there from your running truck, but the actual current travelling through won't be enough. Especially from the trunk all the way up to the doors. I don't know much about these cars yet but it seems their electrical systems are ultra finicky.

                        Are they allen or torx? The only reason I ask is because the other 3 I have are allen.
