    Locked out the car

    I understand im pretty new on here however ill do anything i can to verify i own the car

    Please answer me in pms as to not publisize how to get into our pride and joys

    Basically my issue is that the batterys gone flat on the car, no problem i thought so i put the key in the drivers door lock, turn and.... nothing (never used it before so never new there was an issue, or if its suppose to be electricly opperated, how stupid of audi!)

    How do i now either get into the car to pop the bonnet, or pop the bonnet from the outside, or even better two wires i can supply 12v too so that the remote central locking will work

    Any help will be much appreciated else it seems its going to be a nice shiny bit of ceramic from a spark plug, and my drivers window!! (anyone any idea on replacment cost?)

    Thanks in advance, Joe

    Not recognise my name Russo? Cabbys going up for sale

    How you been keeping... I think the windows cheaper then the grill in this instance, grills Ł300ish looking on eBay

    I'm not with aa/rac as do all my own work, imagine there services to cost more then the window too

    Ł1000 though it looks pretty awsome ATM, don't think it's going to stay looking all that great, will get it done again with funds from the cabby I think

    It's a 2003, not sure what plate it's actually on tbh, swapped a private plate off it to put one on it

    ahh nice... i am doing s3 converison atm but low on funds i dont work lol.... got the s3 rear going on next week..... but there are no other bits near.... i prefer the front end before the latest one because the s3 looks the same as the sline... in the later ones that is... and as far as i know i dont think there is a way of coding out the errors something to do with the loom. although NHN on here is the guy to ask. have u done the facelift centre console conversion with new buttons?

    There's a few people who have managed To code them out now so waiting on there answers

    There's a double cage and facelift buttons on eBay ATM, watching to see if it sells as he wants a fair bit, if it dosnt going to see if he wants to deal outside of eBay at a nicer price lol

    What rns is best to go for? Which you looking at?

    Jack it up, and get a wire onto the starter positive terminal, and another onto the chassis somewhere, and connect these to a jump pack or spare battery.
