Ingrid or Ingmar?

Did you push and turn?

Yes, from the "off" position, you need to push in and turn clockwise, less than a quarter turn.

If that does not work, try pushing down on the seat while turning the key. This is 100% mechanical, NOT electric.

I had somewhat the same problem, the latch clicked all the time, but would not unlock. I finally lubed the latch and now it works much better, only has to click two or three times to open. I'm still not satisfied with the operation, it needs a final adjustment somewhere, but just haven't looked yet. If someone knows where the cable adjust is, if there is one, let me know, that way it will save me time in checking it out, thanks.

At the seat-latch end of the cable, the cable housing has
a white nylon collar, with 3 rings. This end of the cable housing
clips into a support arm...the 3 rings are for adjustment.
When I tried to make an adjustment for slack on my scooter,
each of the 3 rings were either too loose, or too tight.
At the end of the pull-cable, there is a brass collar
crimped onto the cable...this brass collar
is what actually pulls on the latch-release arm.....at this point,
we want no slack..no pressure/no clearance to the release arm.
To gain this condition, I made a slight forming adjustment to the
arm that supports the cable housing where the white nylon collar
is. If it works, you formed it....if it doesn't work, you bent it.
Over time, the stranded core of the seat-release cable will
stretch slightly, & the outside housing will compress a bit.
Remember having to make adjustments to the hand-brakes
on a bicycle ?? Same thing.
