Yes.. indeed I've tried that procedure several times.. and not succeded... sux :D however.. a
locksmith is now at my home trying to get in.. and guess what.. they can't do it.. :( I would love to see the electrical schematics on my car so that I open it with my keys.. SOMEBODY STEAL MY CAR.. so that I get rid of it.. :D

When you attempted the manual override, did you lift the handle before turning the key?? Try that, I read the procedure and it instructs to hold the handle in the open position and then turn the key.


Nope... that's not it... I have tried that several times.. and now I need a electrical
way in.. anybody knows of any?

you have a manual override if you have the key and the central locking is not functioning.
1. go to passenger front side door
2. put key in and slowly turn all the way to the right as far as it will go you sould feel it
release do this until the door unlocks.

I have a prblm.. a fuse has busted.. and it's not just any fuse.. it's the one controlling the locks.. and so I can't get in to the car.. anyone know any way to bypass that fuse without the possibility to open the car.. If I can get the electricity to work.. I have the key.. and can open it.. but it won't work without electricity.. -why.. I don't know.. PLEASE help
