How can I lock a renault megane 56 plate without the key card as it is not working


Locking/Unlocking the doors from the outside
This is done using the RENAULT Card; see the "RENAULT Card" information in Section 1.
In certain cases, the RENAULT card may not work:
- if the RENAULT card battery is weak, flat, etc.
- if equipment operating on the same frequency as the card (mobile phones, etc.) is used;
- vehicle located in a high electromagnetic radiation zone.
It is then possible:
- to use the key integrated into the card to unlock the front left-hand door;
- to lock each of the doors manually;
- to use the interior door locking/unlocking control (refer to the following pages).
Using the key integrated in the RENAULT card
Insert key 1 into the lock in the driver's door and lock or unlock. Locking the doors manually
Turn screw 2 with the door open (using the end of the key) and close the door.
This means that the doors are then locked from the outside.
The doors may then only be opened from the inside or by using the key in the front left-hand door. Interior locking/unlocking door control
Switch 3 controls the doors, boot and, depending on the vehicle, the fuel filler flap simultaneously.
If a door or the tailgate is open or not closed properly, the doors and tailgate lock/unlock quickly.
If you need to transport objects with the boot open, the other opening elements can still be locked: with the engine stopped, press switch 3 for more than five seconds to lock the other opening elements.
Locking the doors without the RENAULT card
For example, in the event of a discharged battery or the RENAULT card temporarily not working, etc.
With the engine switched off and an opening element (door or boot) open, press and hold switch 3 for more than five seconds.
When the door is closed, all the doors and the tailgate will be locked.
Unlocking the vehicle from the outside is only possible with the RENAULT card in the vehicle's access zone or using the key integrated in the RENAULT card.
Door and tailgate status indicator
With the ignition on, the warning light integrated in switch 3 informs you of the locking status of the opening elements:
- indicator light on, the doors and tailgate are locked,
- indicator light off, the doors and tailgate are unlocked.
When you lock the doors, the indicator light remains lit and then goes out.

How do you replace Miata side door mirror


Hi,

Open the door of your Miata and locate the three screws in the door panel. The first is located in the trim plate where the door handle is. A second lies below that inside the grab handle on the door. The last one is found in the upper end of the door handle.

Remove the three retaining screws on the door with a Phillips screwdriver. Locate the three push in retainers on the panel. There is one on the face of the panel near the upper front corner and two in the rear door jam.

Lift the center of the retainers with a flat tool or small screwdriver. Pull the door panel out from the bottom. Lift the panel out of the window track and move it out far enough to access the wiring behind it.

Remove the electrical connectors for the window and door locks by unplugging them from the switches. Unplug the wires from the door speakers and remove the panel. Set it aside.

Locate the wiring connector for the mirror heater and adjustment motor. Unplug it from the wiring harness connector on the inside of the door.

Turn the mirror on your Miata sideways to reveal the two mounting bolts inside the base. Remove the bolts with a socket and ratchet. Pull the mirror off the body, fishing the wires out of the hole in the body.

Best regards.

Door locked jammed in down position but door is actually swung open???


If you tried the door handle from the inside while the door is open,And that didn't unlock it,Try your key in the door to unlock it.If you can't turn your key to unlock it,It is probably the electric door lock solenoid holding it.
You will have to remove the door panel to access it.

My 2004 Toyota Sequoia rear door will not open - the handle is broken. How do I get into the door, whith it closed, to make the necessary repairs?


Dig out the broken bits of door handle, then on the right side insert a flat head screwdriver diagonally up and fish around for the release lever.
Push up on the screwdriver handle to manipulate the release lever down and your tailgate will open.
Remove the interior panels by unbolting the 10mm bolt behind the strap and pulling off the interior pieces held on by plastic pop fasteners.
Remove the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the interior cover plate and let it hang by the harness.
Remove the license plate.
Remove the license plate trim panel (multiple push fasteners from behind and a few 10mm around the lock)
Replace the handle.

Trunk door won't open


With those, I have generally destroyed the interior panel and replaced it with a junkyard part. But, though I don't believe that you can remove the part on the outside, I like your idea...I'd go in with a 4'" hole saw behind the plate, then do some bondo work after its fixed...being behind the plate, even a sloppy job would remain unseen!!! If you do that, just be careful to stop the drill before it fully punches through, so you don't catch it on any linkage or wires in there.
good luck!!!

Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery


I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!

Unlocking Boot lid


I am assuming your problem is similar to mine; the key fob isn't dead, but for some reason the boot won't release.  This happens rarely, but can be very frustrating (and embarrassing)!

When neither the key fob nor the release on the boot work, lock and unlock the car, and insert the key into the ignition.  Turn the key to the second stage, i.e. the accessories are powered, and then remove the key.  This ought to allow you to use the fob again.
