To prevent accidental opening of the trunk caused by an accidental pressing of the "OPEN TRUNK" button on your keyfob, you can pull the cover that hides the wiring harness on the trunk (you can buy replacement plastic retaining tabs at an auto parts store if you break one) and look for the wiring harness. I cut the wire controlling the electronic trunk solenoid and soldered in momentary pushbutton that goes to the outside of the trunk. To open the trunk, I have to depress the pushbutton on the trunk and then press the "OPEN TRUNK" button on my keyfob. I also soldered in a bypass switch in parallel with the pushbutton in case I want to disable the extra security I get by having a pushbutton. It will cost you about $15 in parts (get a high quality, weather rated pushbutton) and about 3 hours of time.

SOURCE: 98 celica convertible key question

Is the key that you have a genuine Toyota key? If so, is the key Black or Grey? If you have the grey key, you only have the "valet" key, and it will not do what you want. You need the Black key. Put the black key in the trunk and turn it 90 degrees & remove it. This controls the inside lever on/off for the trunk. The key hole will either be horizontal or verticle. One way lets the inside lever work, the other position stops it.

If you manually disable it, the car will not start. You need to go to the dealer and have them turn it off with the computer. This is so no one can bypass it and steal your car.

Normally you can open the back seat from inside the truck. Look for a rear seat release somewhere.

SOURCE: The trunk of my 1994 Toyota Camry will not open.

So the problem is the cylinder for the key will not turn and disengage the lock nor does the driver side release lever.

I recommend bringing the vehicle to a repair shop. This repair procedure is tricky and whom ever gets the job has to remove the rear seats to get into the trunk to get the trunk open.

How do I access the top of my rear strut on 2009 Camry Hybrid


I just replaced my rear struts on my 2009 Camry Hybrid. This was the second time in my life I ever did this kind of work. The trick is to get access to the top of the strut. You have to fold down the back seat cushions. In my hybrid there are two pull levers in the trunk that release the seats. The levers are at the top of the trunk.

Once you fold down the seats, there will be two side cushions on the side of the seats that did not fold down. At the bottom of that side cushion, between the side cushion and the bottom seat is a bolt holding the side cushion on. It is way in the back so you will need an extension with a 12mm socket to get to the bolt. Dont be afraid to dig into the space between the cushions to find the bolt. Once you unscrew the bolt, you can lift up on the side cushion and it will come out (lift upward). You now have a clear (and easy) access to the top of the strut. 11_8_2012_9_53_03_pm.jpg11_8_2012_9_53_44_pm.jpg11_8_2012_9_54_13_pm.jpg

Driver seat stuck all the way back, manual adjustment - 2009 Camry


I just had the same problem with a Toyota Corolla 2009. The seat was stuck all the way back, I could move just 1 setting "click" front and back. This happened after I picked up the car at the car wash.

I took the front seat + tracks completely out (4 14mm screws) to discover it was a QUARTER stuck in the track, near the seat belt buckle mount. That was preventing the seat to move.

97 toyota camry trunk latch is stuck not allowing to open trunk how would i get the trunk open? Cant go through the back due to having a speaker system and speaker box is in the way.


I have the same problem. I've found that if you push down on the trunk lid very firmly eventually the latch settles in and will open with the pull lever next to the drivers seat. I usually pull up and push down to mimic the closing motion in a firm manner and after a few tries this allows me to open it up. Consequently, I've begun to close the trunk lid with some force, slam it if you will, and this seems to prevent this from happening. I've lubed the latch with no success either. Just a Band Aid solution, not an actual fix.
