Default Left my only Key Fob in gym bag inside trunk. Car is lock

Hi,
I am in a jam. Left my key fob inside my gym bag and slammed the trunk shut. Don't have a spare key to unlock the trunk. Does anyone have a suggestion or solution. Locksmith won't touch the car.

I can't vouch that this works 100%, as I've never tried it myself. I've heard that if you remove the cables from the 12V battery, then put them back on, that it'll unlock the car. Again, I haven't had to try this myself yet.

I'd highly recommend getting a second key fob at some point after you find a way into the trunk.

I just bought a second key fob. The issue is getting it program. I am in Atlanta and is looking for a dealer that is willing to do it. Called former Fisker Dealer "Patrick Fisker in Chicago" they did not have this service

Will the power button work if the fob is in the trunk. I can try to have an extension to press the brake and power button to see if power will turn on to engage the trunk release.

There's an Atlanta dealer, they can probably do it. Classic Cadillac.

Once you've got the locks open and can open the doors, there's a manual release for the trunk. Open the rear driver side door, pull straight up with some force on the rear seat bottom cushion. It'll pop out. Just move it off to the side a bit. What you actually have to remove is the seat back. Once the seat bottom is out of the way, put your hands underneath the bottom of the seat back and pull straight up. It'll pop out of place. Move it out of the way then look along the top of the area that you've exposed. You'll find a plastic ring there (either black or white, depending on if you have the updated rings or not). Pull the ring, it'll release the trunk.

I thought that the trunk wouldn't lock if the key fob was inside?

The trunk is a simple physical latch, it's not 'smart' at all to know the key is inside.

I thought the same thing and was sure I read it somewhere. So I checked the online manual and the section on the trunk (pg. 3.7) in the owners manual states:

"Note: The trunk will automatically reopen if the key fob is detected inside the trunk compartment"

I grabbed this from an online manual so I am not too sure about the page number.

FYI... I locked my keys in the trunk once, it did not re-open.
