    Also, I forgot to mention it has 3 flat tires, so the tow truck driver said he would have to drag the car onto the flatbed and I would have to sign a damage waiver.

Simple solution - your tbird has a mechanical trunk lock behind your driver seat on the face of the package shelf. Just use your key to open it.

This sounds crazy but try crawling in the trunk of the car and use a screw dirver or something to pry the latch open. may need a flash light for that.

Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


Victoria, Fold down rear seat back, to access trunk space. Your vehicle is equipped with a release handle that provides a means of escape for children and adults if they become locked inside the trunk/luggage compartment.The handle is located inside the trunk/luggage compartment either on the luggage compartment door (lid) or near the tail lamps. It is composed of a material that will glow for hours in darkness following brief exposure to ambient light.
Pull the handle and push up on the luggage compartment door (lid) to open from within the luggage compartment.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Unless you have rear folding seats (only an option, not standard equipment- 2 release handles, one on each side of the rear hat shelf by the rear door opening) then yes.

Dead battery in locked trunk (Mercedes 1990)


Many People don't know exactly how to use the manual key attached to your remote to open the doors and trunk in case the battery is dead. All you have to do is slide the locking button in the back of your remote and pull the metal pre-cut key, then insert it in the trunk lock, turn key to the left and then push in. kawaboongha!!!

82 benz trunk wont open dead baterry


If you use the key to lock all the doors, the trunk locks also, so if you have a dead battery, you probably don't have vaccuum to open the locks, because all the locks are vaccuum activated. Charge or change the battery and start it up, after a few minutes you should be able to activate the door locks, thus unlocking your trunk.

Good luck...

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

2003 S TYPE JAGUAR. DON'T DRIVE OFTEN BATTERY


You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

I have a 1993 325 BMW and cant get the trunk open. The button on the trunk lid just moves in/out freely. There isnt a lever on the inside to release the trunk. Of course the battery is dead now. I can...


if the doors and trunk are vacuumed operated, make sure all the doors are unlocked..this might make it easier to open the trunk..or get the car running and then try to open the trunk with the car running..turn key all the way to the left and push slowly in..I think it is vacuum operated like the mercedes
