I was just winterizing my ride when I went to unlock the front and rear trunk lids. Here I was trying to unlock them so they would not lock up on me over the course of the winter. Surprise! They're already locked. All electronics work fine. The car starts no problem. Windows, locks, etc. all work fine. I just replaced the battery last spring, so I'm hoping it's not that. Any thoughts?

from Rui Rizziolli = Bay Area , CA == CHECK the power lock (doors) at your panel, (right side of the fan control / temperature)... if it's locked, the truncks won't open, it's that simple. mine is a 98 boxster 201 hp and I had the same question not long ago. good luck !
