Does it not open when you use what option to open it? The trunk release inside the car? The one on your key-fab? When you use actual truck button/lock?

I know on my C230 Kompressor ('99), when I push the lock on the trunk itself, it only opens if the doors were unlocked by either my remote, or me opening the doors from the inside which automatically unlocks all doors.

I second this. The title says it is intermittent but the message gives the impression that it never works from the trunk handle.

I guess the trunk is not locked with the metal key, then it would not open at all from the switch inside or from the trunk lid handle.

-It is intermittent as in it will work for a day or two then not work for a day or two and so on.

-The only time I can actually here the latch release is when I press the emergency green button inside the trunk which works a 100% of the time.

- I have Coupe so I do not have a button to open the trunk on my remote, so I only have three ways to open the trunk:
1. The Emergency Release inside the trunk (Works)
2. The main release on the trunk (intermittently not working- never hear the latch)
3. The Key (Does not work- not sure if it never works because the only times I try it is when the main release does not work and
every time it has not worked as well)

My coworker has a similar problem with her 2004 rag top. How would we get into the trunk to press the green button if the trunk will not open? Is here some other route into the trunk she does not know about?

Sorry to bump old thread....but I searched for a bit...to no avail.

Trunk will not open. It s a 2003 c230 hatchy, with only the key fob (i.e. no real key).

Only way to access trunk is from inside by pressing green button. Annoying to a golfer.

Thanks for any help...
