The problem is with the lock segment itself. The unit is made with some cheap type of alloy and the tip that goes into the bracket that locks the door is 99% of the time broken. I got a replacement lock from the junk yard and jury-rigged mine. You may have to do the same. Good luck!!

How do you lock the trunk on 1992 Mercedes 190e?

On my 1992 190E I can lock the trunk with any of the keyed locks. If you lock the doors, the trunk locks and if you lock the trunk, the doors lock. In other words all the keyed locks are electrically interconnected. In reality the locks are not electrically interconnected. There is a pump in the right side wheel well of the trunk, it uses vacuum to lock all the locks and pressure to unlock them. Although the pump is powered electrically, the locks are not.

The drivers door window switch is the master; all power runs thru it first. check the breaker if that is good, I would pull the switch at the drivers door and test both sides of ot; it may just be a loose connection. Power locks are a unrelated/seperate circuit.
