Most vehicles are equipped with a manual over ride to open your trunk and/or fuel door when power is absent. When in question check your owners manual for info or a phone call to your local dealer may be a big help.
Sounds like freddwhy may know from experience with your particular vehicle, definitely start there.
You may want to check your trunk latch for a switch that allows the use of your key to open as well as the switch, again check your manual.

LOCKED MY KEYS IN TRUNK HOW DO I GET TO THE TRUNK RELEASE 2000 FOCUS


I gather that you are also locked out of your car, or you could use the trunk release. If you are able to get inside the car, remove the bottom part of the back seat. Then you will see the bolts holding the seat back in place. Remove the bolts and pull the seat out far enough to gain access to the trunk. If you are locked out fo your car, you could try a wire coat hanger pushed down through the driver's door weather stripping at the top of the door. You may have to pry the top of the door out a little and wedge something in there to hold it out. Shove the coat hanger through the weatherstripping and try to activate the door locks or the trunk release.

I HAVE A BMW 735i I WANT TO KNOW WERE IS THE TRUNK OPENER?? I COULD NEVER FING IT.


Go to the trunk and put your key in and turn it all the way to the left and remove the key. This way by pushing the button at the trunk it will open, the trunk will lock when your doors are locked and the trunk will unlock when the doors are unlocked allowing the button at the trunk to work at that time. I'm not quite sure if your system works that way, or Try pushing the button that opens the trunk down by the hood release latch, or, you should have a remote key with the trunk open button on it, it should have 3 buttons, one is lock, one is open the car and one is open the trunk, if you have the automatic opening trunk, this should be the same, and to close it, just press the lock button and it should automatically go down again, as you did not specify what year yours is, one of them should do the trick...hope this helps

2003 S TYPE JAGUAR. DON'T DRIVE OFTEN BATTERY


You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery


I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!

Keys locked in trunk


The real answer. Open the fuse box found on the far left side of the dash with the drivers door open. Remove the panel cover and you will see an unmarked fuse with what appears to be black fuse pullers attached to it. Pull it out as far as it will go and push it back in. Your trunk release button will now work without the key for a several minutes.
