No, the pull down feature is electronic. Battery voltage is required for it to work. HTH. -Jim

I opened trunk with my key. no electric to open so there has to be a way to close it. Since I had no battery to open, nothing electric was used. So there for nothing moved. So there has to be a way to close it.
