Need to remove battery, how do I lock the doors?

I need to remove the battery from the car to charge it for a couple of days but, as the car is keyless entry and kept away from the house, it obviously needs to be locked. So, how can I lock and unlock it without a battery?

So you have no physical keys? Like your manual says you do?

I am guessing that you have tried manually with the valet key and that does not work? If you have tried that does not function, I am not sure of any other way.

Yes, I do have keys, it is keyless entry, not keyless start! The remote lock and unlock is on the key fob, but the key is just for the ignition.

just because it is keyless entry does not mean there is no way in with the valet key, no?

Where would I put the key? There are no locks on the doors. The only lock is for the trunk.

good question. if you had a teleaid subscription, they could unlock your car remotely.
I cannot believe even with keyless entry, that there is no place, even passenger side, to open the door with the valet key

My 2001 320 has a lock on the driver's door handle. Have used the key to lock it.

We don't doubt you Paul. Have you a picture of your driver's door handle for us?

Honestly, there are no locks on the doors. There is absolutely nothing on the passenger side, just a handle. On the drivers side there is a plastic moulded insert where you expect to find the lock, it has a moulded picture of a key with an 'X' through it, the plastic insert is not removeable and looks to be factory fitted. I'm guessing this isn't a usual optional extra?

If I could figure out the best way to upload pictures to the thread I would certainly do it, I also don't have the car nearby, it is away from the house with a flat battery!! Yes, I can jump start it, but with winter quickly approaching, I want to remove the battery and give it a proper charge. It is not possible to charge the battery on the car where I am / it is.


It is very spooky that you have got the colour of my car correct!! Maybe keyless entry is only common to Lazurite Blue 320's!!!

here is how to upload pics anyway:

Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’!

I have a 2004 (R170) SLK200 & Page 169 of Handbook says Remove cap from Drivers Door, are you sure the plastic plug will not lever out uncovering a normal key hole.
I will look at door handle later to satisfy myself

key less

a mate had same problem on his very modded toycar. he could unlock the boot by key though. i connected a battery to his rear loom (permanent live feed to an amplifier, no drain when it was off though) and he locked the doors. took battery away. when he wanted to unlock it i reconnected battery and he blipped button. job done.
you just need to find a wire in the boot that is live when ignition off and battery in place. then you fool the car into thinking battery is under bonnet still.
or run a couple of wires from battery connectors to the front of car, (make sure they cant earth out,) and hide them a bit.
remember this is only to unlock nothing else, wiring may burn out if high load on it.
