Re: trunk will not open with or without key
Hello theres really not many choices if you have a trunk key it should work if not and the inside trunk release isnt working either you could try to get at the lock setup from the back seat take your lower seat out remove the lower holding bolts slide up off the top lock setup see if theres enough room to work from there to pop the trunk open with a flash light and a screwdriver if not your going to have to pop the lock cylinder at your trunk once its out you can get a aftermarket replacement under $ 20 goodluck please rate

the battery is in the boot/trunk on the rh side under boot trim,,if you cant open trunk with the button or remote use the key in the slot in the boot finisher. that is more than likely siezed cos nobody ever uses it, try a lube spray in the key slot if you cant gain access. if you need to jump start and can not get in the trunk i think the main battery terminal comes to the rh front under bonnet on rh drive cars near brake servo/ master cylinder, you can power it up from jump battery from that point,
spray a little wd40 into the lock cylinder and insert the key and jiggle it until it works. this often happens if the lock cylinder gets little use, which is the case with remote activated locks. you will have to gain access to the mechanism if you want to see why it's not working with the remote.
If trunk won't open on 328, open the pass through on rear seat, then use a walking cane or something else that hat a hook on end to reach the emergency release lever located on the inside bottom of trunk lid. I disconnect my battery for five months, and this is how I gain access to the battery. Also, check fuse box in glove box to see if the trunk activator fuse is blown.
not entirely sure about your buick, but I have a 2000 pontiac that has a switch just inside the glovebox that deactivates the trunk switch. that, together with locking the glovebox would prevent someone with jsut the valet key from gaining access to the trunk area.
if you have a newer 07 and on, there is a lock cylinder near the trunk grab handle. you will have to kneel down to be able to see it. the mechanical key thats inside the remote will have to be used. a spare/valet key wont work. support your local bmw dealership
