Huston we have a problem

I am locked out of my boot! how is this possible... well the Boot release now does not want to work and the lock don't want to work either. And there is this big round tube behind me back seat. Damm gas tank!!! Other than unbolting the gas tank from under the car and moving it carefully to the side and getting in the boot I don't see any other option. + Most of my tools are in the boot as well to top it all off, but I can get some.

Any other ideas other than torching the car and getting my insurance money.

Re: Huston we have a problem

Tried resetting the keys. No joy. I can hear the solinoid move but it is not trigering the lock to release, and the boot key just turns and nothing happens.

Re: Huston we have a problem

push down on the boot as you try release it, that usually pops it

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
