Default Key access Discovery 2 td5 2004


Help I can't get into my car. The remote isn't unlocking the doors and the key doesn't seem to work either?

Ja I used it yesterday everything was fine! I never had to open the door with just the key before though so not sure why it just turns...no resistance to the key hence not opening.

Fortunately it's parked at home so unless I managed to steal someone else's I'm sure I've got the right car.

I think it turns without resistance because it is "superlocked". So how to get it out of superlock without a working remote? Don't you have a spare remote?

Superlocking
Provided all the doors are fully closed, the
Superlocking feature is activated automatically
whenever the vehicle is locked using the remote
handset. Superlocking immobilises the interior
door handles, thereby preventing an intruder
from gaining entry by smashing a window and
reaching inside the vehicle to operate the door
handles.
Note that locking with the key will not activate
superlocking.

Spare remote doesn't work either. If the battery is dead and I have a knackered lock that doesn't open with a key how can you pop the bonnet o check the battery from the outside?

Just joking

This is a big problem. Sounds likely that the battery is dead then.

Is there any way you can get a charge onto the battery?
Can you open any of the other doors?

Otherwise you might be able to open the bonnet somehow by accessing the release cable ?

I'm gonna have to see how to get under the hood, almost certain it has to be the battery.

From Australian LRO:

"Grab another battery & jumper leads.

Crawl underneath and attach jumper lead to starter motor main power.

Attach negative to body. Then attach leads to the battery.

Now try and open doors and take it from there."

That's awesome thanks I'll give it a try this weekend or if I manage to sneak out of the office at a decent time this week.

Just be very carefull that you do not touch the small bolt on the startermotor aswell. It will jump forward when in gear. Connect to the donor vehicle last, just to be safe and out of harms way. If it is an automatic, then you will be fine. Good luck!

Very unlikely both sets are dead I've used them days apart from each other when I couldn't find my usual set. I'm almost certain it's the main battery.

Exactly this happened to my with my dad's Disco2.

The jumpers on the starter thing could work.

What i did was:

The cable that pulls the the bonnet open from inside the cabin runs down the passenger side fender and then behind the grill to the bonnet catch.

I got hold of the cable and pulled it all the way out through the grill so that i can get to it with a girder, i then grinded a section of casing just so that i can get to the actual cable inside with a long-nose and pulled the bonnet open. (afterword i just pushed the cable back bahing the grill and it worked like normal)

After removing and reconnecting the positive on the battery everything came to life.
