Battery Charging / Access ??

Recommended Posts

Hi and a very happy new year to you all.

Any assistance here greatly appreciated, dreaded battery in rear gone flat over xmas, cant open boot, so I have hooked up the charger to the positive feed in the fuse box, seems when attempting to charge the small alarm bleeper goes off, is there any way to inhibit this, (also as I assume current is being drawn, the fog lights flash) ??

No key access to the boot on my S-Type model, so basically just need to get enough power to the battery or solenoid to enable boot to be opened then connect the charger in the correct fashion.

Any ideas or thoughts most welcomed - Thank you

You only need to connect the power under the bonnet for a second and press the boot release button, Then you can get to thew battery direct.

Hi Paul [Bucks]

You can also get access to the boot as there is a manual entry lock on the boot lid to the left of the number plate.
