How do you open the trunk of a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 without keys or the keyless unlock?

You could hook up a button switch and run it into the relay for the wireless trunk release. This is found behind the kickplate on the passenger's side floorboard. Find the Green Wire with Black Stripe into the relay switch. If you place a wire into this outlet and then ground the same wire against the body metal you will hear the solenoid for the trunk release.

So, just hook up a Momentary Push button somewhere where you would like to put it in the car (one side of the connector to the relay and the other side of the connector to the metal frame [i.e. ground]).

This will create an inside release switch without having to remove the key from ignition to open the trunk.

There is not a way to unlock a 2010 C200 Mercedes trunk without the key unless the back seat is taken out. You can call a locksmith or your triple A service.

The only one inside the vehicle is in the trunk itself, it is an emergency release latch. There is no button or latch in the car. To open the trunk either unlock all the doors with the keyless entry or the button on the door and hit the button on the trunk above the license plate. You can also hit the trunk unlock button on the key and then hit the button above the license plate to open it.
