SOURCE: Engine compartment lid of Pontiac Fiero

There are only 4 ways to open a Fiero trunk. With the key, with the electric trunk release, with a locksmith, and with a big hammer and screwdriver.

Some year Fieros required the parking brake be applied to activate the electric release, some had to be in park, and some of the early models would work just by pushing the button. The ground is through the latch, itself. If anything has gotten on the body portion of the latch and the trunk was closed, like a towel or plastic bag, that prevents the trunk portion from making metal to metal contact with the body striker, the release won't activate. If you can put power to the car, insert a key into the trunk lock, clamp one end of a negative jumper cable to it, and the other end underneath to some part of the frame. Hit the release button. This trick completes the ground circuit directly into the latch mechanism and bypasses the body striker plate.

If this doesn't work, remove the release switch from the dash, unplug it, and apply power with a 9V flashlilght battery to the terminals. You may have to play with the emergency brake handle during these processes.

Under the front of the part of the seat (where your **** goes) remove the bolts that hold it there. You will then find bolts that hold the backrest in place. push backrest up and back to get it off.

Trunk release


It's right below the drivers seat you can't miss it. There's a button on the trunk where you put your key to open it on the inside just turn it to on . Then go to your seat and lift it up the little lever it should open it .

If it has the electric trunk release, the button could be in the glove box.
Otherwise you may have to remove the back seat to gain entry to the trunk.

My 1996 maxima key wont open my trunk and neither will the trunk release button


the trunk release button has a little metal like a hammer that hits the trunk lock to release if bent will not open or if you disable it by pushing it down to disable trunk release button the key lock is frozen will not work even if key go's in normal. need to replace it. if u need to get in your trunk and if it is empty would be easy to do just open the middle part of the back seat panel and with a thin and sturdy stick and flash light can hit the little hammer to open it . hope it helps

A trunk release button is not included in most cavalliers. The cavalier came standard with electronic trunk release from the keyless entry keyring. Otherwise you need to use the key.

Where is the release for the backseat to fold down


If your trunk release button is electric, and not working because you need to turn the key to give it power, remove the button and use a piece of wire to jump power to it from the battery. This will get your trunk open! (don't forget to have a spare key made)
