I've a 2008 Elddis Autoquest 130 on a Peugeot 2.2HDi Base. I've left it standing and for personal issues, forgot to disconnect the battery, so now its deader than the proverbial dodo.
As a result, the central locking doesnt work. I can get in the driver side or via the habitation door but I need to be able to open the passenger door to access the bonnet release. As there is no key hole on the drivers door, I'm a bit stuck.
Does anyone have any experience/ advice for me that may be able to help please?
Many thanks in advance
Don't understand the problem, he said he could get in the hab door once inside two options.
Pull the bonnet release you don't need to open the passenger door to do it, then you can access the jump start terminals under the bonnet.
2nd option is to remove the cover in the floor to access the battery.
That is a X244, the OP said his van was 2008 which would be an X250 which you don't need to open the door to get at the bonnet release and the battery is under the floor.
I agree but it would have been designed to be left had drive so it would in essence be the drivers door?Mine is like this too. Have to open the passenger door to open the bonnet. Really clever...
However my battery is below the floor, where the passengers feet would be.
Presumably to stop a situation where a young child ( or inquisitive adult ) pulls the catch and the bonnet opens and obscures the drivers view whilst in motion at high speed.Why should something so vital be obscured by anything? It's stupid, driver's door or passenger.

It’s still a stupid design in my opinion .
