I bought a 2015 elise 1.6 in the summer. I've been trying to take it out regularly during the winter but found today that battery completely dead. This means can't own doors or boot. I found other forums/posts that explained about the battery posts under the front panel and bought a charger. I started to try and charge though I don't know what type of battery it is (lead, AGM, or Lithium). I made a guess it wasn't AGM or Lithium (what is it?). It stated to charge but after a few minutes the alarm started to beep. 

Can anyone help? It's so frustrating that you can't even unlock the doors. I'm also concerned that maybe the keys are no longer sync'ed. I imagine RAC will be no use to me, nor can I get car to garage. Frustrating. 

Grateful for guidance.

I guess the alarm activates because the access panel is off. Push down on the switch to see if it stops sounding. Standard Elise batteries won't do well over winter unless on a battery conditioner.

Once you have a little bit of charge back in the battery the car should respond to the fob.
