Renault - Scenic I - Unlocking And Entering Car With Flat Battery* Fixed*

Hi all,

My first post.
2002 1.9 diesel Scenic - Key entry - not card.

Hope ye can help me please. Left the lights on my 2002 scenic yesterday for over 11 hours while at work.
Came out, and realised it, centre locking wouldnt work, etc.

I tried to open all doors including boot, with the key but it seems jammed or blocked, maybe deadbolts or something?

I dont know what I can do now to get at the battery.

Anyone help/know whats going on?

Thanks!
James.

Hi endeval

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear you can't unlock the doors manually,i'm at a loss as to what to suggest.
Hopefully the answer will be suggested soon.

(don't break the windows just yet.)

WElcome to the forum. You can normally get in through the passenger door with the manual key. Failing that you may need to get the bonnet open somehow and charge the battery

Thanks all.

No luck, looked at the car. Key wont budge any way left or right.

Was considering to pop out one of the little bonnet/rad grilles to get to the bonnet release but dont know because that could be deadlocked also.

We called a callout guy and he will jack the car and boost from the alternator connections to get power in the hope the Central locking unit will allow the doors to be open.

We looked at the option of poping the drivers door fly window, twice - but took a step back and put the hammer down

Very strange - you'd hope Renault wouldnt enply some thing where the passenger door lock isnt deadlocked just because the battery died...

Thanks.
James.

I thought that using the key was mechanical and didn`t rely on electrical power. I`m sure I`ve read on here that if you use your keys to open the door without pressing the "plip" the alarm goes off?
