Central locking clk 209

Hi all, my car has a flat battery i can open the drivers door using the key blade but i cannot open the bonnet. The ignition is dead. Is there a way to energise the central locking or open the bonnet with a flat battery?

The bonnet release is a lever under the steering column. I thought it was mechanical, not electrical?

My bonnet opens when the battery is flat, but not the fuel flap as you say.

On the Nissan the cable is quite stiff; any chance it's the same problem on your CLK? Try pushing the bonnet down to take some of the pressure off the latch.

Mechanical, they do open without battery connected - I did this only last month on the car I was facelifting.

The cable or catches could have gone stiff because of the cold temperatures. Try getting another person to push down on the bonnet while you pull on the release.
