Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had battery replaced and both fob and manual key open trunk.Dealer said I have a faulty trunk latch, but after I took the car home, the trunk opened fine with the manual key. Could the trunk latch be affected by a dead battery when opening manually?

Listen to the dealer- they know more about the 'Vette than anyone-

My trunk key turned fairly hard. Did you turn it with enough force and the correct direction. Also pushing down gently on the hatch may nelp.
