if a w202 you need to keep spraying the boot lock with 3 in 1 oil for a few days

if this wont work you will need to take the lock apart a clean their is a how to some were i think

also what year is the car preface lift or face lifted

When you turn the key to the locked position, try operating the boot opening handle before you turn the key back to remove it.

Or

Operate the boot opening handle and then use the key to lock the bootboot …while still holding the opening handle.

Test the powere supply, if OK, give the lock mech a few shots of WD 40. Leave for a couple of days :dk:
