The power block that includes the fuse and power relay for the power trunk lid are located inside the trunk. After you have opened the trunk lid (using a key), look at the left wall to locate the access flap that is cut into the trunk lining. The fuse block is underneath this flap. The 10 amp mini fuse for the power trunk lid is at location #22 and the mini power relay is at location #36. Check the schematic on the fuse block cover for exact locations.
According to the owners manual, there should be a key slot around the tail lights or trunk lid. You can also use the power door lock switch to unlock the trunk by holding the switch in the unlock position.
The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This
means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of
the front doors. You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.
Are you sure it is the Master Key? Try the key in the glove box lock. The power door locks should unlock the trunk for you turn the key if it is right over to the right turn it right over to the
left . you turn the key to far right to stop the boot been opened when
the doors are not closed.
This is a known issue with these vehicles and results vary with a solution.
Try spraying the key with WD40 and spray wd40 inside the key opening and insert the key into the cylinder. Then wiggle the key around and turn slightly left to right to see if you can get it pop. You may have a strike plate that is out of alignment.
Also,try having someone push down hard on the trunk while turning the lock to open.
Have you tried unlocking the rear seat to allow access to the trunk? there is a manual cable/switch that will most likely have a bright colored end, pull this switch to manually open,I'm not real sure what side it is on in the trunk.
I simply opened the bonnet. Connected the battery charge positive to the + feed on the back of the alternator, connected the negative to the body. Turned it on, immediately the interior light comes on. Turn on the ignition press the cabin boot switch and it opens the boot. Charge battery as normal. Easy Peezy
It could probably use some penetrating lubricant once opened; don't use WD-40 as its properties are great for penetrating but not for long.
There are a number of products, most available at auto parts stores or the chain hardware stores that have more durable lubricating properties.
Now, place one hand firmly on the trunk and 'bounce' the trunk lid while you try turning the key.
It may take a few minutes until you hit it just right but I have never failed to open a stubborn trunk or hatch this way.
If it still doesn't open, you may have been lightly hit in the rear of the car (in a parking lot for example) that has minutely distorted the sheet metal where the stationary latch is mounted.
In this case, you may have to hammer (with the side of your fist) the area below the lip of the trunk while trying to turn the key.
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
