Thanks for your message.
The car is a vauxhall vectra 2 litre diesel estate, just bought last week. 2003 model
It is electrical rather than manual. The little button on the drivers door although it bleeps
does not seem to unclick it to open
The key cannot be used to unlock.
What happened in the night was that the alarm went off and we were trying to stop it for
ages. Lyle discontected the battery, and then reconnected and it stopped. Not sure if this was a coincedence, The battery was completely flat.
Our mechanic came today and crawled in through the rear seat, and released the gromiit
with a screwdriver, put on the battery from his own car temporarily, and from then on was able to press the right hand top button of the fob key twice to release the tail gate. He says
not to use the button on the inside of the door as it seems to have a fault. So the battery is
now recharging and all should be fine now. Hopefully.
Many thanks again,
Kind Regards and best wishes,
Lyle and Dawn
