Hook up a set of jumper cables off another vehicle. Then you will have power to pop the boot button.

SOURCE: Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery

I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!

SOURCE: battery dead, boot will not open nor key turn in


If you look at your remote key fob you will see a small metal "silver part" this should pull out of your keyfob, this is an override key, if you look on the car door where the handle is you will see a thin slot to put this in, lock then unlock the car, this will disable the dead locks and you will be able to open the boot.

This may sound a bit crazy if you have not noticed the silver part on the keyfob before, so do get back to me if you are unsure what I mean and I can send you a picture, if the metal override key is missing then you have trouble getting in the boot.

Hope this helps, like I said do get back to me if you are unsure.

Have an auto electrician use a jumper to open the trunk. Then replace the failed battery. IF you get the old battery load tested and it proves faulty the auto electrician will be able to install a new battery for you at the same time.

Battery went dead had to jump start, now cd player wont work on 2006 mercedes

It should be in the manual supplied with the car. If not call mercedes and give them your vin, reg private detail etc and if you get a nice person,problem will be solved. It happen to me, but not a merc that you gladly own. I'm n battery not sure about this advice but a merc uses a high voltage and you may need a new battery.

Help my xj6 1995 wont start, no lights, everything is dead but it worked perfectly ok yesterday, and I cannot open the boot to check the battery

Sounds like a total battery drain - something left on that you do not know of? Open the boot using manual over-ride (ignition key or cabin pull cord)

Mercedes e class cannot open the boot

I have a e320 2003 model, the same has happened to me. I wondered if it could be the fuse but couldn't find a fuse that managed the boot.....
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."
