Are you talking about your actual lock on the door or a mobile phone? If it's your lock on the door.... I would suggest trying to find out your landlord can get a hold of the old tenant... or you have to call a locksmith who will have to take a look. First, call your landlord and get them to contact the old tenant to see if they know the code.
if you do not have the learned key that works the lock you will need to take the lock to a locksmith that has the reset tool and they can re-learn a new key to the lock.
while at the locksmith shop - have them show you the correct way to re-learn more keys for the future -- and it is very important that you keep a working key for the lock so if the future tenants do not return keys to you, you will be able to re-key to a new key. ( you will need the special tool that fits into the little hole in the cylinder face -- get this tool from the lock shop, they should have plenty ).
The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This
means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of
the front doors. You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.
Are you sure it is the Master Key? Try the key in the glove box lock. The power door locks should unlock the trunk for you turn the key if it is right over to the right turn it right over to the
left . you turn the key to far right to stop the boot been opened when
the doors are not closed.
6. Resetting the code: - please follow these instructions to reset the code on your Powerbolt1000 unit:
Remove the inner cover plate from the lock.
Locate the small round program button near the left side of the circuit board (Red or Black).
To program, the latch should be extended out in the lock position, press the reset button once, then enter your 4-8 digit code on the exterior keypad, then immediately press the middle lock button on the exterior keypad. You will hear a beep. Re-enter the same 4-8 digit code to confirm, the latch should retract. This completes the programming. This signals that your code has been accepted.
To enter a second code, follow the same procedures as in step 3, but this time press the reset button twice then enter your code.
7. Replacing the batteries: - please follow these instructions to replace the batteries on your Powerbolt1000 unit:
Remove inner cover plate located above the thumb turn on the inside of the door
Replace all 4 batteries with quality alkaline AA batteries. (Do not use rechargeable batteries.)
Ensure that the batteries are correctly oriented or unit will not function properly.
8. Changing the password code: - please follow these instructions:
Manually put the bolt in extended (lock) position. Press PROGRAM button once, enter new 4 - 8 digit code and then press LOCK.
Press PROGRAM button twice, enter the same new code and then press LOCK once.
Press PROGRAM button three times, enter the same new code and then press LOCK once.
These stept will program only the new code you enter for your unit.
9. Why is my Powerbolt1000 unit beeping? - To determine why your lock is beeping, please follow these steps:
Take out batteries and unplug powerstrip.
Let is sit for 1 minute then put the batteries back in and wait another minute.
If it does not beep, the keypad needs to be replaced (17733-1).
If the unit beeps, the powerboard needs to be replaced (A17734-4,3 Powerboard 1460 brass finish; A17734-4,26D Powerboard 1460 satin chrome finish; A17734-4,5 Powerboard 1460 antique brass finish; A17734-4,11P Powerboard 1460 bronze finish).
