  1. Hi Guys, Thanks for the help. I've forwarded all the details on, so hopefully he can get it fixed. James
  2. Hi my friend had his car hit up the backside and he’s looking for a specialist to bond the new panels on. Are there any recommended around Norfolk, Suffolk or Cambridgeshire? thanks
  3. Hi Steve, This was the first thing i did, as this is what had happened a couple of months ago. This time it didn't work though (and i also tested the connection with a voltmeter, tried two different battery charges, a boost pack and jump leads onto some battery charger leads i had cut off). However, I have now managed to unlock the car with a lockout kit (without any damage that i have spotted yet), and found that the battery was flat and everything now works as it should. I am now leaving the battery disconnected till i can get a battery conditioner. Cheers for the help
  4. Hi Guys, Thanks for the responses I thought the ignition key must have been changed at one point and the door keys thrown away, but according to the handbook the esprits were made with different door and ignition keys for "added security". I'm awaiting a reply from the previous owner. Both the doors are locked, and the alarm light isn't flashing. I've managed to get a wedge in at the top of the door and i've tried to push the unlocking latch with a coat hanger, but it has too much flex to push it. I've now ordered a lockout kit from amazon as most of the locksmiths seem to on
  5. Hi, I have a 1990 esprit X180 and the central locking has decided it doesn't wanna work. I also found out that I haven't got a key for the door locks. (i found both of these things out at 4 am when the alarm started going off and I was unable to switch it off or get into the car...... i think my neighbours hate me. The battery is charged so I'm hoping it's just a fuse! Does anyone know of a way I can open the front bonnet to change the fuse, or a way of getting into the passenger compartment without causing damage? Thanks James
