If you’re lucky, you can crawl underneath and put some jump leads onto the chassis & +ve terminal of the starter motor to get enough juice into the system to unlock it.
does it need to be on the starter? could any positive – say in a light cluster, or a towbar fitting work? (provided of course the component was switch to “on”)Posted 3 years agoEdukatorMember
You can usually open a bonnet buy finding the cable for the realease and giving it a good pull, enough of a pull to pull it out of any clamps etc. Grovel under the thing with a torch, a bit of rope and stick or something to thread over the cable outer then pull – hard.

Have a look at the door handles the sometimes put a blanking cap over the bit where the key would go ( look underneath and the may be a slot to put a screwdriver blade in, if so pop it off and there will be a normal key lock. normally there is some kind of plastic emergency key supplied with the proper key or even possibly one “hidden” within the fob ( you may have to open up the battery case. if non of the above then you’ll have to get a dealer to sort it!!.Posted 3 years ago

Take a look at the weight of the wire from the battery to alternator to starter motor. Then take a look at the 5A and 16A wires that run to everything else…
Starter Motors are pretty heavy on the current, couple of hundred Amps in some cases.Posted 3 years agoalpinMember
yes, there is a key barrel. hidden by a cap on the drivers door handle. second problem was starting the thing. fortunately the leisure battery is strong engoiuh to turn the starter motor (100ah in the front, liesure battery 75ah).
has been sitting there since the weekend and there is a distinct dead animal/excrement smell in the cabin, but no sign of anything…Posted 3 years agoalpinMember
Bugger bugger bugger….
I feel like suck a richard.
Forgot to turn my car lights off the other day. I thought the other night that i thought I saw a glow, but assumed it was the street lamp opposite reflecting off the car lights. Turns out they were on.
Now the battery is dead. So dead in fact that the remote locking doesn’t work. I can’t even get into the van to open the bonnet to recharge the battery.
Any tips on how I can get into the motor. It’s key-less entry, too… i.e. no outside lock barrel.
