    I pull up the lever and trunk doesn't open

    My Mirage does sort of the same thing, only on the fuel door though. I'm pretty sure these problems are generally and mechanically the same. I have to get someone else go with me to gas station so I can open my fuel tank. Anyway, hope this helps!

Open the boot with the key and ask someone to activate the lever while you have a look on the latch in the boot. You should see the cable moving if not, it might be broken or just disconnected.

Open the trunk with key, lift trunk lid, on latch there is a white lever to activate\ deactivate the inside release,so if your car is unlocked no one can reach in and open the trunk.

    It isn't white, but there is a lever that had been pushed somehow. I didn't even know it was there. Thanks for the help. It solved the problem me as well.

How do I prevent trunk from popping open?

Some trunks have a lever near the trunk latch on the lid to disable electrically opening the trunk. Could be a short causing the trunk open switch to open the trunk. If it doesn't open electrically via a button then you have something bent and the trunk doesn't close properly.

Trunk latch is stuck. trunk will not close. help

Its possible that it is just sticky, i dont know for sure what style your car has but if it the kind with the lever in the drivers side floorboard, get a buddy to hold the lever up for you and try to GENTLY pry the latch its self open with a flat head screw driver then spray some white lithium grease on it and work the trunk lid a few times

The trunk of my 1994 Toyota Camry will not open. The lock is in a horizontal position. Will not open with lever next to driver's seat. What can I do?

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 open the truk of my 98 toyota corrola?

There is a lever to open the trunk next to the fuel door lever under the left front side of the driver seat.

If the lever is broken or missing, check if the back seats recline, allowing access to the trunk. Crawl in and pull the lever going to the lock cylinder.

If neither suggestion works, call a locksmith.
