WarringtonHello, and welcome to A2OC.
Where in the North West are you?
Turn the key in the driver's door lock. If the battery is totally flat, none of the other locks will respond and so you'll hear nothing, but the driver's door should have been unlocked mechanically.
Do not break any windows until all other options have been exhausted.
If you have to break a window, break one of the door windows, not one of the small ones in the corners.
Yes about 4 or 5 what appear to be full travel. Could it be deadlocked stopping the internal handle from working?The Key in the Drivers door needs to be turned 90 degrees clockwise to unlock, as I know well. Never had a totally flat battery when I have had to do that though.
You mention operating the internal door lever (but no joy). Do you realise the internal lever needs to be operated twice to open the door from the locked state? Have you tried that?
Yep the key turns both ways in the lock but doesn’t physically unlock the door obviously I’ve turned it in the lock 100 times today in the vein hope it would work just onceSeems strange as my Blue A2 has no battery fitted. I lock and unlock via key in the drivers door handle.

Years ago i heard sending power down the reverse light switch multiplug which turned on the dash, you could ask a local breakdown guy for their thoughtsIn another forum there was a post about waking the electric windows up and then rodding through the door shut to the window switch but no detail was given about how to actually wake the windows up
The boot does have a mechanical release, it's at the bottom of the rear window o/s in the trim, it runs to the latch so "in theory" you could make a hole to the o/s behind the number plate and activate itIf the boot had a emergency release, and is located behind the number plate, maybe a discreet drilling would enable activation of the emergency release???
