Did you get this problem solved?? i had the same issue, but solved it.

if you did not solve the problem, this is how...

insert the key into the trunk key hole
turn the key to the left and push the key
at the same time, lift the trunk while the key is pushed in and to the left

hope this helps
normally, you just turn the key to the right on most cars - i guess the folks who built audi a8's are left handed.

The frame on the drivers side door as you look down, there is a button the pops the trunk. However, if you cannot open it with the remote, it is not likely that this will work as it uses the same mechanism to open the latch. I would definitely unlock the doors with the key, go to the trunk and make sure the the lock is in the "unlocked state", ad press the button in, it should just open

Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door


I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.

I would call the dealership and explain your situation and they might be able to make you a valet key based on the vin# with proof of ownership.

2001 AUdi S4 Trunk will not open. Can't open manually or wiht remote. WIll do it speratically. Can not open manually wiht button at trunk or with key. HELP.


The same "latch" secures the trunk closed.
The key, electric relay and button operate the same latch.
IF the trunk fails to open, the "latch" is not completely releasing from the catch that secures it.
The next time that you open it, inspect the adjustment of the latch assembly. It has 2 bolts that secure it. You can loosen them and adjust the assembly to a slight more open position - so that each time you operate the latch, it releases from the catch.

Don't move the assembly too far - or the trunk will not be able to lock closed at all.

Yikes! You may need to remove the rear seat of the vehicle and trip the trunk latch from the inside.
