    Im locked out of the car

    Since the car got broken into my driver's door lock hasnt worked with the key (but still locks on the central locking). This wasnt a problem until today when my key has decided it doesnt want to work the remote locking anymore so Im locked out. The boot is also de-locked so no go there. the car is deadlocked so I cant pop the handle and pull the lock cable up. aside from blagging a window is there any other way in?
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    I assume you have taken the fob to bits and prodded it a bit and made sure the circuit boards are still pressed together??? and everything is connected, they can separate.

    Failing that I might have to drag myself out of my death bed to watch window breakage haha.

    spare key or AA/RAC dude.. i've known people lock themselves out of their vans on my firm and they've rang the aa and they have come and sortied it out, they have a special tool which slides down the window inside the door and pulls the locking arm to open it

    aye mate, its all together, the little light flashes etc. just doesnt graft . And if the window goes Ill give u a shout but Ive got a skillful window breaker. It scores the glass then you put a suction thing on and give it a dink and it in theory comes out in one bit

    The car is deadlocked though mate so it doesnt matter how much you pull the pin up it wont release. I may well phone them for the crack tomorrow anyway to put my membership to use

    the connections are all fine and it has a new battery in. its just something that key does for some reason. every few months it gets bored of working so needs re-synced to the car. pain in the arse really

    when my dad got locked out of his insignia the rac got him in minutes,

    they had this ratchet clamp thingy they put on the top of the door and pumped it so it would prize the top corner open slightly, enough to slide a rod in and unlock the car..
