Its my fault, i disconnected the battery cable trying to reset a cel but i forgot my trunk key will only go half way in, so i am so out of luck. i can get into the cabin or open the hood. i read a post saying that you can jump the trunk open by connecting a couple of wires. any info will be helpful. thanks..

can anyone help me find that thread, thanks for the reply.

i just bought some pb penetrating catalyst spray. the lock had been like that since we bought it, about 5 years so i dont think its going to work. I just sprayed it, i am going to wait a few minutes and try to unlock with key.

the battery hook up seems like a great idea only if i know which wires to hook up. thanks.

*is this the thread you were referring to:

i found it, Thanks a million.
yes. that was the thread. the positive goes on the wires in the black box and the ground can go on any chassis ground. good luck. let us know how the results turn out.
Thanks i got everything power up and pop the trunk. somehow on my 1998 c230 tapping the + battery cable there didn't do anything which is fuse #4. I tried it on Fuse #8 the 30amp fuse and everything power up, the cluster, interior lights, everything. I was really happy to get power and open the trunk otherwise i wouldn't know what else to do. Thanks again. :)
