eurotec :

Hi

eurotec :

When using the key in the trunk lock you need to turn the key counterclockwise to the 10 o'clock position and hold it there while pushing in on the button. Have you tried that procedure?

Customer:

Yes but button does not work

eurotec :

Ok, if you open the hood there is a place under the hood right in front of the fuse box where you can attach your positive jumper cable so that you can power the car and use your remote or the button in the car.

eurotec :

There should be a cover over the terminal with an X marked across the cover.

Customer:

the battery is completely dead. car was delivered door to door from california

eurotec :

That's ok, you need to attach your jumper cable to the positive terminal that I am directing you to.

Customer:

eurotec :

See the red arrow in the picture above? That is the cover over the positive jumper terminal. Open the cover and connect the positive jumper cable there.

eurotec :

Connect negative to ground and then use your remote or the button in the car to open the trunk.
