Replace the latch. the lock can stay with the car so you don't have to get another key to open it. Also since yours did click, the new one should unlock the trunk. Open the trunk, look at where the latch is. A couple of nuts/bolts a plug and it is changed out.
have a look at the trunk latch mechanism.sometimes they get closed when they should be open(the fingers that lock the trunk lid closed).if its in the closed position just unlock the trunk with the key and use something to pop open the lock(fingers) then the trunk will close again.
Several times I've been able to fix this problem by tightening the bolts that hold the trunk latch. If that doesn't work, order and install a new latch. After fixing the latch, find a friend, and get into the trunk, and make sure that the emergency release (for trapped children) also still works.
There is a possibility that the remote latch cable is stuck (lubrication
is gone) . With a screwdriver, NOT the fingers, try to return manually
the latch, to its open position (instead of the pull open position). If
you push it too far, it will go into locked position, and when you pull
down the trunk lid, it wont reach its normal closed position. In that
case, pull the latch back open, with the remote lever. Should you manage
to close the trunk properly, spray some WD40 or some lubricant on the
Try a screw driver,and release the trunk release at the same time and unsnap the latch,the latch thinks it is closed,because the latch never opened back up to allow the striker to go in it and trigger the latch to close,the latch is in closed mode,you will have to manually unlatch the latch sort of speak.
The same "latch" secures the trunk closed.
The key, electric relay and button operate the same latch.
IF the trunk fails to open, the "latch" is not completely releasing from the catch that secures it.
The next time that you open it, inspect the adjustment of the latch assembly. It has 2 bolts that secure it. You can loosen them and adjust the assembly to a slight more open position - so that each time you operate the latch, it releases from the catch.
Don't move the assembly too far - or the trunk will not be able to lock closed at all.
Yes if your lock actuator is not stuck on unlock.Try unpluging the harness to rhe electric lock,and see if it will lock and stay locked using the key.If ti works then your okay.if you still have the problem then your tounge that holds the trunk down needs to be replaced.
