Re: Stupid Question from Older LT Owner
JayJay: The good news is that I have an Antigravity-type of jump starter, the bad news is that it is locked in the side case that I need to get into, to get to the knob to unlatch the seat (to get to the battery....). However, your suggestion to check the manual was excellent! Even though my owner's manual is locked in the top case, I keep an electronic copy on my laptop of all of the LT's manuals and found the answer -
"If the compartments werelocked by the central lockingsystem and, for some reason,the remote control unit is not tohand, you can use the emer-gency unlocking routine toopen them. Emergency unlock-ing is independent of the cur-rent status of the lock barrel. You cannot use the emergencyunlocking routine to open theradio compartment.
1. Insert the ignition key intothe lock you want to open.
2. Turn the key to the 45° posi-tion.
3. You can now press in thelock barrel with the key inorder to open the lock. Notethat the key cannot beremoved from the lock barrel in this position.
4. You must turn the barrel tothe unlocked position or thelocked position in order toremove the key. The lockremains locked.
