With the back hatch open look down and to the left side and you will see a latch pull up on the latch and pull the seat back down at the same time.

I locked my keys in the trunk the 2 keys ignition and trunk keys r locked in the trunk can i get the trunk opened to get them out?

I did this once myself to my 1989 crown vic. There should be 2 bolts on the back seat (follow the seat belt down, you'll feel them.) Take off the nuts from each side and the backrest of the entire seat pulls up and out. you should be able to see clearly into the trunk, grab a flashlight and hopefully hook your keys pulling them out.

Another possibility is the trunk open button in the glove box should you be so equipped, but it may require power to open, the crown vic would not release unless the car was on, but it could be worth a try.

My battery is completely dead and I am trying to open the trunk to get to the battery, but the manual operation won't work

That model of car should have fold down seats in the rear I believe its a 60/40 split seat. Locate the handle to release the seat, and once done if you have room there should be a cord, or pull handle in the trunk to pop it open. Most cars have these now so if someone throws you in the trunk you can escape. The other option is to run some jumper cables to the battery through the back seat and hit your button on the console to pop the trunk, and just disconnect them after you pop it and go about your mission.

How can i get a X Type Jaguar booth to open when the lock thats faulted?

If pushing the button will not open the trunk (boot), you will need to remove the rear seats to access the trunk compartment. Pull the bottom seat off by simply prying it. The fold down back rests are locked from the trunk on top so you will have to unscrew the retaining bolts from the bottom of the back rest to flip the seats up. Once inside, you will find a yellow pull handle that manually opens the trunk where the striker is. Pull it and try to have the replacement peice ready so you don't have to go thru that again.

2003 Toyota Corolla LE back seat fold down? how?!

My 05 Corolla trunk would not open. I used a broom handle shoved between the rear seats to activate the emergency release handle on the back of the trunk lid. It took about 2 minutes. When I tapped it just right the lid popped open. This was better the damaging the rear seat by bending it to reach the seat releass mechanism. It turned out that the cable came off in the asembly probably from slamming the lid shut. Once the cable was returned to its location I used needle nose pliers to sqeeze the metal tighter around the cable.

How do I fold by back seat down?

If you will open your trunk, you will see a round handle lever you pull on to release the seat. There should be one on each side. They are located near the top of your trunk.
