I checked a couple of spec sheets and it looks like there may have been an option for a remote trunk release but it was not standard equipment. If your car had the option it was probably near the driver seat and door.

SOURCE: keys locked in trunk - trunk release inside car

Older style cars did not always have remote trunk release. Call dealer ask if remote trunk release equipped. Rear seat can be removed but, trunk access is not guarantied. Recommend getting a replacement key made with vin and title.

This is a common problem. Your alarm was on when the battery went dead. When the alarm activated, the hood/bonnet opening lever locks to prevent thieves from opening the hood in case the top is down. Some boxsters have a jumper post the pulls out near the fuse box. However, I do not think the 1997-1999s have this post.

Buy a male-to-male cigarette lighter adapter at the auto store. Connect between your car's cigarette lighter socket and the other car's cigarette lighter socket. Do not try to start the ignition or the any other electronics. You should not even need the key in the ignition. You should be able to pop the door locks with the remote and open the bonnet.

My push button for trunk of 98 chevy lumina does not work anymore !


After many years of use the elecronic unlock mechanism for the trunk will sometimes break and needs to be replaced. It's a common problem.
Until it is replaced you will have to use the manual trunk release which is normally located in the boot compartment and accessible behind the fold down rear seat.

98 chevy cavalier trunk won't stay shut


Could be. Or the electric part of the latch could be faulty.
Assuming you have an electric release you should be able to disconnect it and just use a key.

A trunk release button is not included in most cavalliers. The cavalier came standard with electronic trunk release from the keyless entry keyring. Otherwise you need to use the key.

I have a 2002 chevy cavelier, i used the button on the dash to open the trunk, now the trunk will not latch when i close it.


Try pushing the button under the dash back into its normal 'unactivated' position, and see if the trunk will latch shut. It could be a sticky latch mechanism in the trunk, which some silicone lubricant or WD40 might help to free up. Check also that the latch has not actually returned to the 'locked' position prior to trying to close the trunk. That would definitely stop you from closing the trunk properly! Try unlocking the trunk latching mechanism again.

Battery needs to be recharged after 3 days of sitting.


There is a slow drian being placed on the battery from one of the VW accessories installed on your bug. I had a very similar problem with my daughter's 1998 Beetle, and the cause was traced back to the hood latch. There's an electrical connection to the hood latch, and when the connection fails it places a slow drain on the battery. Although I'm not fully certain, I beleive the connection is part of the circuit that allows the security system to sense that the doors, hood and trunk are all closed.

I also had a problem with the electrical trunk release actuator, and had to have it replaced once. The remote key fob signals a the electrical actuator to open the trunk lid when the trunk release button on the key fob is pushed. If your trunk release operated normally, you probably do not have an electrical problem by your trunk.

About 60 percent certain you problem is located in your hood release circuit. An experience car nechanic should be able to test this circuit using a hand held electrical meter before it is removed and replaced.

Good luck. My daughter's bug has been acting normally ever since the latch was replaced about 2-3 years ago.
