Just a guess, but my touring are mechanical at the tail gate with switch to activate locks, diagram of the trunk on US sedan models shown simular operation. try the truck, if you have the ski boot thru to the back seat might get in that way.
Good luck

Nope... that's not it... I have tried that several times.. and now I need a electrical
way in.. anybody knows of any?

you have a manual override if you have the key and the central locking is not functioning.
1. go to passenger front side door
2. put key in and slowly turn all the way to the right as far as it will go you sould feel it
release do this until the door unlocks.

I have a prblm.. a fuse has busted.. and it's not just any fuse.. it's the one controlling the locks.. and so I can't get in to the car.. anyone know any way to bypass that fuse without the possibility to open the car.. If I can get the electricity to work.. I have the key.. and can open it.. but it won't work without electricity.. -why.. I don't know.. PLEASE help
