SOURCE: mercedes/dead battery can't open trunk help

Just had the same problem.

The fact the key had not been used in many years the locking mechanism was basically stiff'

Applied copious amounts of wd40 kept turning the key back and forward while applying pressure and release to the boot lid did the trick

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.

SOURCE: 98 SL500 dead battery. Can't open trunk to get to

Hi Your S class has two batteries. The smaller one is located in the engine bay, and the bigger one in the boot (trunk). No need to access any of them, simply open the door with key, insert key to start engine, you will notice that not all ignition lights will come on, but the engine WILL start, and the batteries will be recharged after a short while.

My 2000 Mercedes Benz S500 is dead- electronic key does not


It's not that unusual for a battery to fail that soon, and the "no lights, no nothing" says that it's the battery again. Your best bet at this point is to pull the battery and take it to the point of purchase for testing. They should either replace it under warranty or charge it for you. After you replace the battery you should have the charging/electrical system checked for possible shorts or power drains.

The battery is dead on my 1997 S500 Mercedes. HELP!!!! I can't charge the battery unless I can get into the trunk. The trunk won't open. Evidently trunk is automatic based on a charged battery. Any...


Look under your hood, you will find contact points for jump starting. If you have a battery charger, you can connect it to those jumper points, and that will give you enough juice to operate the trunk lock.
