Often,the trunk latch does not get lubricated enough(I can tell you from my dealer tech experience that places like Jiffy Lube NEVER service the body latches).Try pulling the release handle while some else "slaps" the trunk lid.This usually works on the hood,trunk,and remote fuel door release.I would see many Grand Ams that were only 2-3 years old with these problems.

SOURCE: 1994 pontiac grand prix. The trunk lock is jammed

you can gain access through the rear seat, once inside locate the lock using a pair of pliers you can gain access by turning the bar on the lock one way or the other. If you need to replace the lock remove the U-shaped clip that holds the lock cylinder in place... Otherwise take the lock to someone who can repair it that way you don't have to have several different keys to open and start and run your vehicle etc. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. The trunk will not

Mine also had this problem within the first few months of ownership. I took it to the dealership and they said it was a "known issue" with the latching mechanism. They used some type of tool to pull the latch forward and it worked like a charm. It was free of charge at a Pontiac Dealership. Hope this helps.

Can not get in trunk


First off... Need more information! Doesn't the key work? If it's a Electronic opener... check your fuses (but the Key should still work).
You could also remove the back seat and craw into the trunk area and trip the latch! Ha Ha. Have fun!

Automatic truck pull down


do you mean it won't close....or it won't stay closed ? check the latch inside the trunk....sometimes it may be in the locked position already....in which case the ring that goes into it can not.....sometimes just "unlocking it with the key will reset the latch into the open position....and a bit of oil on the moving parts can work...

Can not get my trunk open by lever inside or key lock on trunk lid and I am using the right key. Trunk lock seems to be in open position.


The lock latch is held by a spring to be in Normal Close position. It it is in open position then there is 2 possible root causes: 1- The cable pulling the latch to open gets stuck. 2- The spring broken or out of its position. Hope this can help to fix it.

My trunk won't close.


Is the trunk latch in the "locked" position?

Lift the trunk lid and look where the latch is, right in the center. The lower part (on the car) is a square metal loop, and the latch part (on the lid) has a slot that fits over that loop with an inner part to grab on to the loop.

If the latch is blocking the slot, then it won't close. The solution in this case is to take your keys and turn them as though you were opening the trunk. This should release the latch so the slot is clear.

Good luck!
