My keys stopped working. Got new batteries and still central locking won't work.
Can't tell if car battery is dead and door. Locks are for a diffrent key.
Any suggestions on either
A charging the battery from outside the car. Or
B breaking into the car and replace the locks just incase.

The other thing to look out for is if the car was locked with the remote, it may stay in 'disabled' unless unset with the remote.

 

I wonder if it might be possible to get to a live wire on either the alternator or starter from underneath with the under tray off.

I had a shitty key fob case on mine. Could open and shut locks if i took the circuit board out of the case but wouldnt work in it. Worth a try.
I believe you also have to alert the car to talk to the remote after changing the battery. I think it has something to do with pressing the unlock button about six times very quickly. It's in the owners handbook somewhere.

Have you tried the passenger door? I had this problem I left penetrant in had to use a straw to get n left it in over night. It because you dont use the locks. When you put your key in you need to push the cylnider in a little before turning youll feel and see the he lock moving in if it doesnt it seized 

 

ps i used this shop about to see if you can get it cheaper i got mine from amazon.

Yeah the key for rhe cylinder in the car was replaced along with the diesel. Cap so there is no key for the door locks.

I have a slim Jim. Going to try to get in and pull the lock. If thst fails I'll try drilling the lock from the outside and replace. It with keys Grrr.
