Question about 1999 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

The keys are locked in the boot and the AA can't get in with their keys etc, as the car is so secure. is there a release button for the boot in the interior of the car? The boot isn't properly shut and we can see the keys but we can't pull them through because of the key ring.

There is a cable lever on the left lower kick panel for the release. you may have to wiggle the hood to get it to release. good luck.

How to remove the back seat of my peugoet 307cc


Hi,

I had the same situation today. The rest of my car was open but the keys were locked in the boot. Fortunately, using a long, hooked rod, a nice man was able to fish the keys out from inside the car. Just above the back seats, the plastic is soft and flappy. You can squeeze tools in and out through there (and an arm at a push) and try to fish the keys out. I hope this helps other Peugeot owners.

Mercedes c class 2001 elegance, key fob not working everytime its pressed. I have had the batteries checked and they are still working fine, any advice as to what is causing this?


Most likely needs to be re matched to the car.

Two bits of info off the net for you

C CLASS (1993-1997), E CLASS (1995-1997), SLK (1996-)
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds manually lock or unlock the vehicle using the passenger's door lock or the boot lock.
Alternative method
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds, switch the ignition ON.
Alternative method
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds, turn the ignition switch to position II.


and

1. Place key in ignition lock and turn to position 2 [all ignition lights on]
2: Turn key to off position and remove from ignition.
3. Within 10 seconds:
3a: press the Close [Lock] button and hold it down
3b: while the Close button is still depressed simultaneously press the Open [Unlock] button. Press and release the Open button 5 times [still holding the Close button down]
3c: Release both the Close and the Open buttons at the same time, and immediately push any of the two Open buttons once [i.e. either the Open doors or the Open Tailgate]

This information is for the resetting of a previously synchronised key to match the security system after batteries have been removed or replaced. This information does not work with new keys which it seems must be taken to a person with a key synchronisation device [or a super-ripoff-expensive MB dealer]

hope this helps

I can not release my boot open from button in car or from my key fob! only putting the key in and turning it will open it.


the boot lock has two positions full left then upright or full right then upright one of these positions will allow you to remotely open the boot.(it is so that you can lock tho boot and give the service key,which will not open boot/glovebox,to the garage or valet parking.

My key does not open or lock my doors remotely had key checked and is sending a signal but still not working


You do not say what year your car is, here is standard programming for most bmw,s,after battery or key replacement or malfunction.
Unlock car,enter, make sure all doors boot etc are closed.
Switch ignition on and off,remove key.
PRESS AND HOLD unlock button.
Press lock button 3 times in 10 seconds
Release unlock button
Some models led flashes in key for 10 seconds
Later keys central locking will lock unlock rapidly to confirm reset.
Later keys without led has no battery replacement,as it charges as you drive.So if you have this type charge before reprogramming

TWO KEY FOB IS NOT WORKING ONLY ONE


Have all keys with you inside the car and repeat again with the second key within 30 seconds...... "Press and hold the 'unlock' button while at the same time pressing the center 'lock' button three times. On the third time, release the 'lock' button at the same time you release the 'unlock' button." If you have a key with three buttons, ensure doors are unlocked. Put key in ignition and turn key over to 2d position where dash lights, etc come on. Pull key out. Press and hold the "unlock" button while at the same time pressing the center "lock" button three times. On the third time, release the "lock" button at the same time you release the "unlock" button

KEYS LOCKED IN THE BOOT OF A BMW 320 2003 REGISTERED


Hiya, same thing happened to me with my e39 2yrs ago. Keys were stuck in boot for 2days, in the end I sussed out how to get them.......you have to take off the reg plate, then, with a pencil, drag a line from where the key goes in down to the catch where the boot actually locks. Then you drill a hole anywhere along that line, this will give you access to the bar that connects the locking mechanism, just put a long nosed pliers into the hole and pull the bar, and bingo the boot opens!

Unlocking Boot lid


I am assuming your problem is similar to mine; the key fob isn't dead, but for some reason the boot won't release.  This happens rarely, but can be very frustrating (and embarrassing)!

When neither the key fob nor the release on the boot work, lock and unlock the car, and insert the key into the ignition.  Turn the key to the second stage, i.e. the accessories are powered, and then remove the key.  This ought to allow you to use the fob again.

Trunk latch locked


It seems someone has activated the lock release lever security. This prevents entry into the boot from inside the car as a security measure. You do need the master key which is the key that works in every lock not just ignition ie glove box. Cheers Nick

How to open boot from inside the car( cant seem to find button )


First of all
  • does it have an electric operated boot release button?

If it does , It probably needs adjusting to remove slack tension.
Trouble is its located.....in the boot....AARRRRGGGHH !! LoL
Although I own a V8 Holden Statesman, not a Alfa GTV,
An elec boot release is an elec boot release, Try what I do for mine.
Have someone push down on boot lid & release it , as you keep quickly hitting the button.OR have them sit on it.
Works most of the time for me .

  • IF IT HAS A KEY OPERATED BOOT
If key fails to turn quite enough to open the boot, Or not at all , then the barrel may need lubrication or replacement.

As electric boot release motors only have a small amount of torque & share the same mechanism as the key itself.Therefore a "sticky" lock will eventually result in the loss of cable tension


To Lubricate you lock ...( no pun intended lol )
  1. Dip the your key in some oil .Motor/Baby/Sewing/Tan/Cooking anything like that, just on the area that is inserted into the lock.
And insert into the lock , Remove & repeat over , whilst jiggling the key untill it will open

  • Or Use a spray product such as CRC or WD-50 with the small straw that inserts into nozzle.

If that fails , and you get cannot access the rear of the lock area from inside the boot to manually operate the latch, Then youll need to force it open and replace the barrel itself.

First visit the wreckers/Auto shop and pick one up...dont forget the key...lol

Next Hammer a suitablly sized flat-blade screw driver into the keyslot of the bootlock, take care not to damage the car, but dont be afraid of making the lock itself look reaaal ugly, hammer,twist,wiggle untill its either open or out of the way .
once visible , turn the "square hole" to open your boot and attach the new lock.

After it has
