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.

Is the door lock switch on a Mercedez 300SD supposed to lock and unlock all doors?

The driver's side lock unlocks and locks the other doors, gas panel, and trunk, depending on how you have set the trunk lock. If you have one you can figure out the trunk if your system is working. There are two settings. You can NOT lock the driver's side door if the door is open. This is to prevent you from locking your key inside.
