    Hi. Can anybody help me please. I took my car to get MOT'd which is a Honda Elysian 2.4 petrol 2004 model and the garage admitted that they let the battery go flat. Luckily today I tried opening the door and it doesn't work. The Honda dealership can't help me and the Mechanic has no idea how to sort this. Does anybody out there know how to go about fixing this or even if it's possible to turn an electronic sliding door into a manual door as if it's not resolved it will not pass it's next MOT and the car will be a write off. I appreciate any advice. Thank you Chris

    Hey Chris,
    There should be a switch on the bottom right hand side of the dash (by the VSA switch) that should allow you to deactivate the electric door. Then you should be able to manually open it.

    Thanks. I got to the bottom of it yesterday when someone told me that the mechanic will have forced the door shut! I ended up forcing it open and hey presto re set and all okay. Thanks for your help

    Pass! Apparently lots of mechanics force electric doors shut. Something to bear in mind for future advice the Mechanics
