    Red face Locked out of Car!!

    This probably belongs in the humour section...

    I bought a new flip-key fob case from eBay the other day as my only key is looking a bit 'used'. It arrived today so decided to swap over the internals from my old fob. I got a bit distracted by the telly and took longer to swap over the bits than I should and now the remote won't work.

    I realise that the key just needs to into the ignition and re-sync'd but...

    Last year I replaced the front door because my old one had a poor repair and rubbish paint match from a previous life. I didn't replace the door lock at the time as I didn't have a lot of time and couldn't see an easy way of doing it.

    So now the key won't open the lock and the fob won't activate the central locking and the log book, with the security card is in the glovebox. ...

    So, fully expecting a good ribbing, is there a way, short of breaking a window, for me to get into the car to re-sync the key? As this is a public forum, please feel to PM me with details.

    Gutted. The door lock is a 2 minute job! Hind site is a great thing LOL.

    So Im guessing you only have the one key?

    What recovery / AA / RAC etc do you have?

    does the key open the boot? and can you unlock the doors with the button on the drivers door if you get in that way?

    Good point! Go in through the boot, pop open the bonnet, disconnect the battery, open the car... reconnect battery, sync key...

    You can open my boot with the key if the cars locked, I think its only later cars that only have a button and not an actual lock to put your key in.

    Master key? I didn't know they possessed one?

    Or is that a technical name for the brick they carry?
