That's a good thought!

Good luck with this, I recently went through the drama of having someone close my trunk while both batteries were disconnected. Only afterward did I find out the mechanical key lock was toast! I had to cut a hole in the spare wheel tub (plastic) and reseal it after reconnecting the consumer battery ground strap.
The plastic on my trunk latch is deteriorating to the point that where the mechanical linkage from the handle connects, it is broken so that my manual unlock would not work either. I fixed it with some JB Weld and bailing wire, but not trusting it, I drilled a hole in the lid behind the tag so i could get a screwdriver in there and trip it if necessary.
