    Thanks, Danniboi, It worked a treat !! Used your tip to open boot by inserting the silver part you mentioned in to key slot situated beneath the mercedes badge on the boot .

    Again, Many Thanks,

    Eamonn.

Hi

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.
Regards

Dan

98 SL500 dead battery. Can't open trunk to get to


Hi Your S class has two batteries. The smaller one is located in the engine bay, and the bigger one in the boot (trunk). No need to access any of them, simply open the door with key, insert key to start engine, you will notice that not all ignition lights will come on, but the engine WILL start, and the batteries will be recharged after a short while.

Left key in ignition and battery dead. trying to open trunk to charge battery but unable to do so without power.


If you can open the hood, the battery can be charged from the hot terminal on the alternator or starter. The negative charger cable can just be attached to any bolt on the engine or any ground wire.

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!
