If the deadlocks have been activated, then the interior door handles will not work. I would probably either join a breakdown organisation and call them out, or pay for a locksmith to get the barrel to operate (if I can't get it to work).
Cars are not intended to have easily bypassed security features (a bit sad that we need them at all), but I would probably entrust this job to an expert.
The days of using a wire coathanger or a brick to gain entry have long since passed.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Before you start trying to break in, it might be worth trying a jumpstart pack from underneath the car. You'll need to get it on axle stands (don't take your chances with just the jack) remove the engine under-tray (probably) and see if you can get to the starter motor.

If you can, then hook the positive lead from the jumpstart pack to the big meaty wire on the starter motor, then connect negative to bare metal on the vehicle body or engine.

With a bit of luck, that'll give you enough juice to get the remote central locking working.

Try squirting WD40 in the door lock when you have your key half way in .

My door lock used to do the same thing but after a squirt of wonder juice all is good now

Never read Beauty magazines they will only make you feel ugly
