159 Battery issues
I know there is loads of stuff on here about batteries and the 159 (mainly that the car munches away at the charge when not in use).
I went on holiday to Hong Kong for 12 days, came back and the battery was dead (thankfully we took my missus' Clio to the airport), jumped the car was fine, thought I'd buy a smart charger to give the battery a new lease of life (the battery is only 12 months old), however haven't worked out how I can remove the battery to charge in the house (don't have access to leave it outside charging) and lock the car. I took the battery out this morning, used the actual key in drivers door lock with a quick double turn but it only locked the one door.
Is there something I'm missing and an easier way to safely lock the car with no battery?
(Sometimes I hate the car, then I get in and drive it and remember she's a beauty)
