No, you dont need to break windows. use the mechanical key that is slotted in the end of the normal electronic gizmo key to open the drivers door. It doesn't work on the boot lid even though it should so you need to energise the electric boot release from unde rthe bonnet as described elsewhere in this solution.

Boot wont open battery bonnet, on passenger side, by the suspension strut is a square box, lift the cover, underneath, you will see some terminals. Connect jump lead red to terminal, jump lead black to earth on car. Car with good battery to jump off, do not start, but connect leads in conventional way, this should allow enough power to open boot on remote, providing the interior lights come on to show power going in. If this does not work, check connections.. Do not attempt to start car on key or you will cause serious wiring damage, this is just to be used to power boot release. Once boot opened, sort it in normal way.
On newer cars the black box with connectors has a red cross to show power point.
If car is locked, then you will have to break a window to gain access to bonnet release, unless someone else knows of another way.
Luckily, the car was left unlocked.
Hope this helps.
Please note that this is a 1998 NOT a 2000.

It could possibly be an emission problem or ur transmission. Most likely your transmission especially if theres a lot of miles. With a problem like this there is no specifics to truely point out what it is. I suggest taking it to a mechanic that can plug it into a computer and tell u the code of the problem and then go from there

Hi I've got a c class 2006 and my wipers are only working when I'm actually driving as at above say5 mph. If I'm stationary at traffic lights or a junction then they won't work?...

i replied to this in your follow up question, but will add this also,, replace the wiper blades, and also,, clean your windshield with a windshield cleaner wax, your wipers could be old, and actually sticking or dragging not letting the vacuum drive at low idle move them

Hi there - I wonder if you can help us, with the heavey snow today our 2 year old Kia Sportage wont move at all. After not using it all day our battery seems to be dead. I would appreciate any help or...

An good battery is not going to die from 1 day of not being used. And one cold day is not going to kill it either. Something drained it, I think you need to charge the battery and take it somewhere and have someone figure out what is draining the battery while the ignition is OFF. this usually turns out to be an anti-theft circuit malfunction which keeps locking/unlocking the doors.
