If you have recently had the key made, it's possible that it needs to be cut again. If all of the cuts in the key are not exact, it could cause your key to unlock doors, and fit ignition, but sometimes it will not work on other locks such as the truck, glove box, etc. If the key is an original, chances are, it could be one of two things.

Either there is another key that goes to the trunk(perhaps the lock cylinder was replaced at one time, or the actual mechanism inside the trunk is either broken or malfunctioning. If this is the case, you'll most likely have to access the trunk through your back seat to open your trunk and/or look to see what the problem is.

However, if you are not comfortable doing this yourself, then I suggest calling a local locksmith. If you can take the car to them, they should be able to get it fixed rather inexpensively. Hope this helps and have a great afternoon!

I have nothing when I turn the key. I can't even open the trunk! With the remote, or the trunk button. And as you know the battery is in the trunk.


There is a key trunk access behind the drivers seat.
It's probably your battery. Even if your battery shows that it is close to 12v sitting, I've found that the amperage comes in to play when trying to start it.
Good luck,
Patrick

I have a 92 celica gt and the trunk wont open with a key, also if i pop it with the latch it falls back shut unless i prop the latch open


if the key turns the trunk lock then inside the trunk one or both rods could have jarred loose from the key lock. this is not likely due to the button still opens it. If it does not turn try squirting a break free lube into the key lock and wait for 10 minutes or so. put the key in and out 10 times or so to break the tumblers free then try to turn. as far as it falling back down sounds like the shocks for the trunk lid are worn out. you can probably order new ones at a local auto parts store

1995 dodge neon trunk will not open. Key works


Hello, you could pick up one of those little containers of lock deicer and lubricant and spray it in the key lock. From the description the key lock works intermetiatly. After you put the spray in work the key in and out a few times and work at turning the lock. While your trying to turn the key try moving it in and out slightly. Your key lock might just be freezing up from lack of use.

Trunk is broken.


With the trunk open try putting the key in and turning so that the latch swings open. This may be the problem. The latch may be stuck closed. with the key turned make sure the latch is open if it is not then take a scrwedriver and pry on the latch with the key turned to open it. Then try to close the trunk. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.
