    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.

How can I open the trunk of my 2004 Infinity G35 if the switch doesn't work?


There is a manual release inside the trunk... this is accessible from your rear seat. Here is a video.

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.

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.

I cant get the trunk open I know how to put down the back seat but I don't know what to do then


Most newer cars have a provision to pop the trunk from the inside. Look for a glow-in-the-dark handle that will release the trunk.
If your car has a remote trunk release, perhaps the cable is broken or stuck. You could try using a spray lubricant at both ends to free up sticky parts.

If you car is not equipped with a release and only opens by using a key, you may be able to remove the entire lock assembly from the inside. From inside the trunk, pull back the carpeting and reveal the bolts holding the latch to the bodywork. My guess is that you will find 2-3 bolts, 10-12mm in size. The latch will remain secured to the trunk lid, but at least it will be open!

Try taking out all of the back seat, and find an access
to your trunk. This is block by lawanit.board that can be
taken off to access the trunk.
