    Hi all, went to move the old range rover last week and can't get in.
    Does superlocking disable even the key unlock on drivers door or has something fallen off?

    Found this in a manual.

    ’Superlocking’ using the handset:
    Press and release the ’lock’ button (1) on the handset twice (within 11/2 seconds). After 15 seconds you will hear ’superlocking’ engage.
    If any door, the bonnet or tailgate is left open, a mislock will occur (see ’Mislock’).
    If a window or sunroof is open, superlocking will engage immediately, however volumetric protection will not be activated.
    To unlock:
    Press and release the ’unlock’ button (2) on the handset once.
    If the handset is inoperative, the vehicle can be unlocked by using the emergency key access code (see ’Emergency key access’).
    Superlocking’ using the key:
    Wherever possible the handset MUST be used to ’superlock’ the vehicle. However, if the handset is inoperative, the key can be used as follows:
    Turn the key in the driver’s door towards the rear of the vehicle (and release) twice within 11/2 seconds.
    NOTE: ’Superlocking’ the vehicle using the key will provide perimetric protection only - volumetric protection (protection of the interior space inside the vehicle) WILL NOT BE ACTIVE! If any door, the bonnet, or the tailgate is left open, a mislock will occur (see ’Mislock’).
    To unlock:
    Wherever possible use the handset to unlock the vehicle - press and release the ’unlock’ button.
    If necessary, the key can be used to unlock a ’superlocked’ vehicle, but before the engine can be started, it will be necessary to release the engine immobilisation function by entering the emergency key access code (see ’Emergency key access’).



    Might help.
    Or I am guessing your little rod might have fallen off;)

    Drivers door latch (key) should override anything ;)

    That's what I thought. Always worked before but not now. Just my bleeding luck.
    Have to find some other way of getting in it then!

    Yes, if anyone has any none brick based solutions for getting in it that they would care to share via pm I'd be most grateful!

    I disconnected the battery before parking it up as I knew it would be there a while and the key has always worked before.
    I suspect that even if I can get the bonnet up and reconnect the battery, the remote probably won't work until it's synced?

    Surely if no battery, then not possible to superlock?

    Battery on, lock, disconnect battery, close bonnet.
    I certainly didn't knowingly superlock it as I know what a PITA it is so I'm guessing I either did it inadvertently or something had fallen off the lock barrel.

    Ah ok.

    Ours dropped the connection between key and lock once and of course you only find out when you need it.

    If it’s not super locked you stand a better chance of getting in then:). If not super locked door “sill button”(is that what it’s called?) is still active

    I once slammed the door on an icey day and the door locked, car running:( where’s the spare? Oh it’s in the glove box was the answer:oops:.

    Took me 30mims and a bit of wire.

    Good luck

    Wasn’t easy and if anybody feels that info should not be here I will remove.
    But it’s common knowledge for getting in any car.

    stealing a P38 is the kind of thing only the insane would do and the genius lament.

    Second rule of RR ownership, never disconnect the battery without at least one door open. Lock up afterwards if required.

    If you can get a battery connected somehow then you will probably need the EKA before anything else. @Saint.V8 or @Datatek might know a way.

    I can always get power to the car via the caravan socket.

    Superlock is two presses of the lock button, a single press isn't.

    I would think the mech link from barrel to lock is kaput....

    With normal locking it is possible to lift the sill lock button by some means, superlock you wouldn't be able to.

    I think it is the rod dropped off. I don't think I would have superlocked it, indeed, I'm not sure it can be superlocked with the bonnet open.
    I'll try a coat hanger on the sill button next week when I'm at the unit and see if I can get in that way.
    Cheers for all the help.

    Does that work with the battery disconnected?
