First Method: you cannot access trunk by removing back seat, you have to remove the 6*9in rear speaker and fish keys out that way. It works Second Method: Boost it. Safe and easy way is through something like the cigarette lighter port (they actually make jumper cables with cigarette lighter plugs on both ends for this purpose), but to do it quickly, you can jump it from the high-current post on the back of the alternator. Attach the positive cable there, and negative to a good ground on the engine or chassis. If you don't feel comfortable identifying your alternator's high current cable, consult a qualified mechanic. I'm a locksmith, and I've had to find inventive ways into cars where the battery is dead, the battery is in the trunk, and the keys won't open the trunk. Happens more often than what you might think, especially on European cars. This is my preferred method.

Locked keys inside trunk


Hi Damon:
Here's some ideas.
1) Is there a spare key anywhere?
2) If you get the VIN # from inside the windshield, can a dealer give you a key code so that you can get one cut?
3) Check with a locksmith to see if they can "pick" the lock.
4) If the car is not locked, can you remove the back seat to get into the trunk?

Wrong keys or wrong car?. lOL
the cable release won't work if the trunk kew was in lock horizontal position. It needs to be vertical when key is removed. More penetrating fluid and try to force key rocking back and forth in and out. Use lots of wd40 or penetrating fluids and repeat. This will work. Also make sure you are using a master key only. Black top.

Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim


By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.

Keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock


The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.
