Re: trunk lock wont open
If you do hear the click noise then that means your trunk is now unlocked. Try giving it as much force as you can while someone else is hitting the trunk release, your hinges for your trunk are probably hung up on something.

Do you hear a click noise at all? You could try this.. One person sit on the truck lid, (heavier may be better) relieving the lift tension on the lock, while the other person push the button and hold. Sitter then hops off and pulls up on the trunk lid. If not working, Sitter person could try gently bouncing on the trunk lid while you hold the button. Groceries still in trunk after 3 months??? If no joy, then you need someone to replace or remove the lock and pop it with a screwdriver.
If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck
with a key unlock doors before attempting to open trunk there may be a button to push on the inside of vehicle also unsure on the button part some alarm sytems wont allow you to open trunk with the doors locked
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
By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.
if the key turns the trunk lock then inside the trunk one or both rods could have jarred loose from the key lock. this is not likely due to the button still opens it. If it does not turn try squirting a break free lube into the key lock and wait for 10 minutes or so. put the key in and out 10 times or so to break the tumblers free then try to turn. as far as it falling back down sounds like the shocks for the trunk lid are worn out. you can probably order new ones at a local auto parts store
You may be able to open the vehicle using a coat hanger or similar object to push the lock/unlock button. Once you've gained access to the inside of the vehicle, you can push the trunk unlock button on the dash or floor (can't remember which) and it will release the trunk lock so you can retrieve your keys.
I have the same issue (battery is completely dead in my 1998 Mercedes C280 and I can't pop open the trunk). I looked under the hood and have no idea where the positive charging post would be - can anyone help me find it? Thanks
