Open passenger door manually with key, then pop bonnet and remove plastic cover on passenger side at bulkhead. You will then see a connector from battery which can be mated to a slave battery in order to work remote to open boot.

The battery is dead on my 1998 C180 mercedes benz Espri auto. I can't get into the boot/trunk to access the battery, how can I charge or jump start the battery. Where do I connect to?


In the bonnet on the the left side there is a small box with two wires. Put a jumper on the positive wire and just ground the negative. That is connected to the battery and you can open the boot to access the battery.

Electronic key won't work after dead battery??? battery went dead and when recharged the electronic keys won't open the doors anymore?


If you have the Vehicle Owners Manual it will instruct you how to reset the Electronic Remote(s) as disconnecting the Battery or a totally discharged battery removes all power from the On Board Chassis Computers memory. Therefore you must reset the Remote(s) so that the On Board Chassis Computer can recognize them. If in Doubt, please consult your Chevrolet Dealer to rectify the problem.

This problem is identical to the other post "boot wont open electronicaly by the boot release latch above the number plate, the boot release button inside the car or the key fob! I have to use the manual key to mechanically open it now."
