hi, if you open up the hood , do you see a cover with a plus sign on it ?
check you owners manual and see how to jump start your car, then you will have full power., to open trunk.

hi vovpor, If you if you pull down the armrest in the rear seat, does the middle between the seat and the trunk a soft piece of leather?
If it is, maybe you can punture a small hole to see if it goes through.
then you can find your key.

Obviously the trunk is locked with mechanical key and you can not unlock it with remote or trunk switch on driver door even if you have good battery voltage.
See your dealer, take your car registration and your ID they will duplicate mechanical key for you.

I have had this problem with another 220 chassis. The only was I was able to get
into this car is to break the rear trunk plastic panel that the license plate is screwed into. Remove the license plate and then the big plastic piece that the licen
se plate is bolted to will come off the trunk. This should only be used as a last resort as you will probably be buying a new plastic piece. When this piece is removed you can acces the rod that goes from the trunk latch to the vacuum solenoid near the upper portion of the trunk. Hope this helps.

It may be more expensive than the key - and I don't know if you can complete the setup without accessing the inside of your car - but Tele-Aid may be able to unlock it for you if you call them and start a subscription. There is some paperwork to do through your authorized dealer to start the process.
