    Hi

    I put a new battery in our W140 S-class and I can't open the door, it seams to unlock and the door pin pops up, but the door remains firmly shut.

    Any suggestions on how we can gain access to the car?

    The boot opens and the fuses look ok.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried manually unlocking it with the swing-out key?

    Sorry, couldn't resist :D

    Total stab in the dark as i'm not familiar with w140s but i'm guessing it's related to the soft close? The internetz suggests that the reset procedure is as simple as pulling the relevant fuse and then having a cuppa before replacing it

    Hi. Try and get yourself an Air Wedge Tool for opening car doors. KLOM is one company that makes them (loads of other companies available). Available on eBay for about £10. You use this kit to open a gap in the door frame and then pull the door handle. Standard procedure with roadside assistance. HTH.
