    Battery dead AND emergency key won't turn

    I've had my car standing for a long while away from home so as expected, it's totally dead. It's a 2006 Dynamique on a keycard and that doesn't work either, assumedly as no signal from the car. I tried the emergency key in the passenger door and for some reason it won't turn either way??? Does...

    Battery/Cable/Starter amp level?

    Morning all. I've been reading into and looking at different battery cables. I've been told that for the length I want (to relocate my battery behind the passenger seat) I need 10.1mm cable (25mm sq core) which is capable of 170 amps. At the minute I've got an 8mm cable which I'm assuming has...

    How to unlock when lock seized and no battery??

    I thought it would be a good idea to disconnect the car battery before going on holiday for 2 weeks. I came back today and the door lock is probably seized. It won't turn at all. I am going to spray WD40 tonight but I am not very optimistic... So with the battery disconnected I am stuck. Any...

    How do I lock the doors easily without a battery?

    Probably the stupidest question you've ever heard. The central locking on my 52 plate Clio is controlled by a button above the radio, there is also the remote fob and a key hole on the passenger door. There are however no knobs, dials, latches etc to lock the doors (well drivers door at least)...
