    You did try to turn the key in the right direction?

    Sit on the seat or push down compressing it where the latch is. Then try to unlock it at the same time. It’s more than likely in a bind therefore it can’t unlock.

    Tried both suggestions
    Could someone take a pic of the underside of the seat and lock/ latch might try to push a screwdriver in and release it.

    I don't know if the Zuma lock is cable actuated, but I had a bad lock on one of mine and found I could still open the seat by reaching up under the scooter (mine was near rear side cover), grabbing the locking cable and tugging it (while compressing the seat just a bit).

    Removing the rear tail light helps. I've locked my keys in my storage compartment once or twice.

    Thanks, I did find a video on YouTube just access the cable and yank it. Seems like accessing it will be the trick

    Also having a spare helps also.
