I have had my B-Max for more than a year now BUT

I have glaucoma and DVLA has revoked my licence, I didn't pass the field test (but that is a tale to come back to another time).
My problem at the moment (apart from above)
The car has not been driven since it's first service in March and is now looking like Miss Haversham, very sad indeed.
I have asked my daughter to arrange insurance for her to drive it but when I try to open the car none of the 'keys' work.
There is a skeleton key inside the fob but how do you use it? There is no fob to attach it to!
The manual is inside the car, as indeed the gate key, so I am stuck.

Take the key out of the remote fob, but note where the T shaped part of the key fits into the remote.place the key in the lock and use the remote (the part where the T was originally nicely laid out when you opened the remote)
To turn the key gently.

I think if you hold the remote fob against (where the ignition key would go)
You can use the button to start the car vaguely remember the salesman mentioning this.

Possibly something to do with flat battery in the key fob, nothing to do with original post but just thought of it.

Hopefully I will have more luck with the DVLA before then, otherwise I will have to get to say goodbye to my lovely black B-Max 1.6 Titanium Auto with 3620 miles on the clock.
For anyone interested I missed 9/112 points on the Estermann Binocular test.
