Key Entry

Following the recent issue I had with my D3 not going to sleep and running the battery flat. I had to get into the car by unlocking the passenger door. I found that the lock was very difficult to turn. I had to force the lock so much that I thought the key blade would break off the key fob. Luckily this never happened and the door did unlock.
I would suggest that you all try to get in to your D3’s using the key to make sure that your locks work.

I had more troubles putting the small plastic bit back in place than turning the key itself...

Opening the car was straightforward even though the battery was dead...

Ours works fine - it had to due to the alarm problem mentioned elsewhere (which seems to have cured itself now its warmer!)

I agree with Gurvan about the plastic cover though!

are you sure all the doors/bonnet/tailgate were shut as it will honk the horn when locking if one of these is not shut properly.

Look for a little padlock symbol on the front passenger door handle... look for the hole underneath... insert key and flip off plastic over... use key hole Wink

Or look in the manual Taz Wink
