More often, there are just steps that you might have possibly missed when operating it that is it is not working. Do not go panicking yet, just stay calm and read through the manual.

Call a professional locksmith.

If you have read the manual through and you have followed all the workaround stated. This is the time that you may need to call a professional locksmith to help you out.
