    THERE IS NO TRUNK RELEASE IN THE GLOVE BOX ON A 2004 INFINITI I35. THE TRUNK RELEASE IS LOCATED ON THE DRIVERS DOOR. THE PROBLEM WAS THAT THERE IS A (REDICULOUS) SETTING SWITCH LOCATED INSIDE THE TRUNK DIRECTLY UNDER THE LOCKING MECHANISM WHICH WILL DISABLE BOTH THE KEY PAD AND THE DRIVERS DOOR RELEASE BUTTON FROM OPENING THE TRUNK, THIS SWITCH WAS INADVERTENTLY MOVED TO THE DISABLED POSITION WHILE PLACING ITEMS INTO THE TRUNK.



    THE FIX WAS TWO PART:

    1. AT THE TOP OUTSIDE CORNERS OF EACH BACK SEAT THERE ARE TABS LIKE THOSE ON THE DOORS OF OLDER CARS WHICH WERE USED FOR LOCKING AND UNLOCKING PURPOSES. HOWEVER THERE ARE ALSO CORRESPONDING LOCKS WHICH MUST FIRST BE OPENED, AND ONLY THE VEHICLE'S MASTER KEY WILL FIT THESE LOCKS.



    2. UPON GAINING ACCESS TO THE TRUNK BY MOVING THE REAR SEATS THERE IS A TRUNK RELEASE LATCH LOCATED DIRECTLY TO THE BACK CENTER OF THE TRUNK (WHERE A KEY LOCK IS LOCATED ON MOST VEHICLES). ALTHOUGH THE TRUNK WILL OPEN WHEN THE RELEASE IS PULLED, THE AFOREMENTIONED SETTING WILL NEED TO BE MOVED INTO THE ENABLED POSITION FOR THE KEYPAD AND TRUNK RELEASE BUTTONS TO WORK AGAIN.

Have you checked the trunk switch in the glove compartment to make sure it is on? Just a thought.

To remove the rear seats: there are two tabs for the rear seat bottom one on the left and one on the right, look at the front bottom of the seat cushion. Pull the tabs and lift up on the seat it should come out easily. Once the seat bottom is out you will have access to the mounting hardware for the seat back. Good Luck.

I have a 2007 impala my trunk won't open and my seats Dnt fold how can I get to the trunk to change my tale light


On that model the only way to access the trunk when the latch has broken or has malfunctioned is by removing the entire rear seat assembly.
You need to pull the bottom section(the part you sit on) of the rear seat up and take it out of the car. Under the back section of the seat you will find a pair of bolts that hold the upright section of the seat to the car body. Remove the bolts and lift the seat back section up and remove it. Remove the protective layer and you can crawl into the trunk. You can then access the trunk latch from inside the trunk.

The vehicle should of course have been engineered with at least a narrow center fold down section of the seat from where you can access a manual trunk release . No doubt as a silly cost saving measure it was not designed this way.

Why my trunk want open


What is year--make--model? Does the trunk have a key lock? Will the key work?

If the trunk release is electric, need vehicle info to look up wiring. Some makes and models, the rear seat back will lower. Maybe you can access trunk, that way, or remove the rear seat-back then see if you can access the trunk?

Infinity I 35 trunk lid will not release when actuator is activated. Can hear it working, but will not release


You have to get to the trunk lock mechanism from the inside through the back seat. From center of the lock mechanism, just to the driver's side is a "switch" the needs to be "slid up". After that, should work like before. For the pic orientation, you are looking from outside in & over.

Trunk access from back seat


Some vehicles have drop down rear seat, should be a button or pull strap to release. Others do not have the option, and would require removal of the lower seat and seat back by removing bolts.

Front driver seat blows fuse when seat goes back


Sounds like a broken or cracked wire under the seat. It sounds like it's grounding itself out when you put the seat back.Find someone limber to crawl under the seat to eyeball the situation, chances are, it's a simple fix. Hope this helped you out. G.K.

In the trunk of the car there is a black panel behind the rear seat remove screws that hold this panel on. There are three magnets at the top of the panel. Remove panel and put screws in safe place. Go back to the inside of the vehicle there are three brackets that hold in top cover of back seat remove that lay it down in the back seat. You now have complete access from the rear seat to the trunk. To reassemble reattach rear seat top. Reassemble black panel in trunk just attach to metal with magnets and then put screws back in.
