I haven’t driven the car for some months now so the battery is flat but I am unable to get into the car to charge the battery as the fob does not seem to be working and neither is the black door lock coming up when the key is turned in the lock. I have gone to Timpson who have said there isn’t an issue with the battery in the key as there is a signal. I cannot gain access via the boot as there is no key barrel....what do I do???

If the cars battery is flat

Jack the car up
Remove the under tray and put power to the car from underneath
Earth at the chassis (negative) and power at the back of the starter motor ( positive)

Then try the remote to unlock the doors as they are probably dead locked
