Well... Last night I was stuck outside of my Elise in the cold. (Luckily I left a jacket in the boot and when I found it I was quite happy.) Had the soft top on and the controller for the door auto door locks was not functioning properly so my alarm was turning off but wouldn't unlock the doors. Searched on here and found various solutions but unfortunately none of them worked.

So I went oldschool... I acquired a wire hanger, compressed one of the corners then twisted it 90 degrees so that the corner could loop around the door lock. I slipped it in carefully between the glass and the rubber seal and lasso'd the door lock then slowly pulled upward. Took me two attempts but I was able to unlock the door with no damage to the paint or glass.
