Question about Bentley Cars & Trucks
Here's a fix that worked for me. Imported a 2007 GTC from UK to Malaysia. Started ok off the boat but found battery flat after 3 weeks standing on my return from Europe. Unclip throttle linkage cover at rear of engine. Remove drivers side air filter housing cover (six star head screws). Remove air filter housing (two setbolts one with Allen key). With bolts removed housing can be lifted off - some resistance from clips on underside. This takes around 10 minutes. On bulkhead below air filter housing unclip small black rectangular plastic cover exposing two bolted terminals. The left hand terminal (looking from the front of the car) is a positive terminal from the starter battery. Connect jump leads to this positive terminal and any clean bolt on the chassis. You can now open the boot and also start the car. Alarm goes off for a couple of minutes but resets itself. Also got some odd warnings (EPC and suspension height) but these cleared after a short drive. Replace the air cleaner housing. A bit awkward getting the manifold seal to seat properly. Replace the start battery. Mine was a Bentley original so no surprise that it needed replacing after 8 years.

Lift the bonnet/hood and attach a battery charger for an hour, or get a jump start boost from one of your other vehicles using jump leads.

Normally if you use the key and turn it to the left and then to the right the car will start on the resident battery and all will be well. Do not use the start button. If all lelse fails then put a battery charger into the two cigar light sockets for 1 hiur at max 10 amp with ignition turned of and with wires trapped in closed door to switch all coutesy lights off and then there will be enough for the trunk lock to energise. If it is later spec there will be a handle in the trunk accessible thru the centre arm rest by an arangutang!""

I tried all above on my Bentley continental GT 2003 and it did not work for me. I ended up removing the tail light by taking out 3 screws throught the frank and then jump starting the batteries.

remove the rear seat ; if needed; crawl to the back of the hatch and release the hatch lock from inside using a blade screwdriver or, have a locksmith at the dealer make a new key by code using your vin number
