Vehicle access???

Can Anybody help?

I have a reault scenic that has been off the road for about 3 months, I went to start it the other day and the battery was flat, so I took the battery off and recharged it.
My problem now is I can't get into my car as the central locking is engaged. I've tried the key that comes with the keycard but I still can't get in. The handbook says for the emergency key to work the battery must be connected?????

Thanks in advance for your imput

The emergency key should work with no voltage or the battery being present. Sounds like the lock or key is faulty. Have you ever tried it in the past??
If you have a sound battery and a set of jump leads and can get the car jacked up you may be able to provide a temporary voltage supply via the heavy cable on the starter motor. One jump lead (negative) to a metal part of the engine and the other (positive) to the starter lead.

You could also have a blank keyblade in the keycard
