SOURCE: Car won't start.
Hello again, You could now have a driver authorization problem.
1. Plug your central locking pump back in.
2. Make sure that your remote batteries are good.
3. Lock and unlock the car with the remote.
4. Try to start car.
5. If no start you may have to synchronize the anti-theft system.
6. Point remote at the interior rear view mirror, press button on remote twice and turn ignition key key on within 30 seconds.
7. Turn key off and then back on and try to start car.
If car starts, you will need to find out why the pump won't shut off.
You may be able to unplug the pump after you are able to start the car but this I am not sure of.

If you dont have a "jump block" under the hood, you can carefully attach a decent size wire to the positive (large) terminal of the starter and the ground to anywhere on the engine block. that will give you a decent power source to open the trunk.

is check engine light on or visit workshop displayed on cluster while engine is running. If so there is a electrical malfunction-although if the linkage is disconnected from the trans to the throttle the gear recognition switch would send an implausible signal and set a code. this code is not a priority code and may not set the light right away. A lot of times one of the linkage rod retaining clips falls off. Look under the car and you will see a rod that attaches to the shifter box arm and to the transmission neutral safety switch(manual valve) arm. It may actually be resting on the ground. If not look and make sure it is secure. Next there is a slot on the shifter wood where you can put a flat blade screw driver in and release the manual shifter lock. Your owners manual will describe how to do this. Depending on what failed the vehicle may be in what is called limo home mode where the trans does not shift out of second gear and the throttle is not very responsive. It will give you the opportunity to move the car to a safe location possibly even a repair shop. The shifter boxes are are a sealed unit with no replaceable parts. They are slightly expensive and require an s.d.s. machine to replace because they must be programmed and version coded. I hope I have been helpful
