Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Can you get into the car at all? Are the doors open or is the hood open?

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 years ago.

Hello , to open the trunk you must insert the metal blade Into the lock and turn it to the left to 11o'clock position and hold it there , then as you are holding it push the button in and it will manually pop the trunk. Let me know if you get it. Lou

Thanks but I already know how to use the metal key IT DOES NOT OPEN THE TRUNK!!! Is there another way to get in?
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 2 years ago.

Easy , I am just trying to help , when you turn the key left it overrides te electronics and does a manual release. That always works , when you turn the key to the left and press in the button does the button feel like it has resistance ? Also you can try removing checking and reinstalling fuse 62 in the rear fuse box. I'll upload the photo. If your not gonna work with me to help you than I will simply opt out. I am here to help and I have no idea of your capabilities or knowledge with the car.
