Help! Locked Out!
Posted 03 December 2018 - 07:56 AM
Both of the battery’s went flat on me and I cannot unlock my turbo with central locking. I managed to open the boot and change the backup battery for the secret button but when pressing it and the fob nothing happens still. Is there a trick to using the button or is it just press and hold while pressing the fob. I am thinking though as I have swapped out the standard alarm for the meta system that has now disabled the secret button?
I thought about removing the wheel and trying to gain access to the battery with jump leads but there isn’t any room also the locking wheel key is inside the car.
Guess the only thing left is to try and open the bonnet somehow. Can anyone pm me any tricks to do so in my situation? Or some idiots guide instructions to the secret button may also be useful.

you can charge the main battery from the backup battery, they are connected. But there is a fuse between the two batteries so only use a trickle charger.
The other option is to remove the OSF front wheel and arch liner to access the bonnet lock, but it is possible to open the front bonnet with a long screwdriver

Really puzzles me why the secret button didn’t work though with a brand new battery

Though I’m still thinking why the backup battery didn’t work. I can hear a relay when pressing the secret button so something works. Is it because I have the meta alarm and not the vx one?
