Normally you wou;d be able to ccess the lock cylinder by the inside of the boot lid and then you have to unhook the actuating rod and the cylinder itself is held to the lid by a fork type metal clip. hope this helps

A 99 deville the key want turn to unlock trunck what to do.

Spray lube in the lock cylinder. Most likely you have to open it from the inside of the trunk and replace the lock cylinder. Remove the back seat to get in the trunk. This is the biggest problem with key FOBs. No one opens a door or trunk with the key. The cylinders corrode and lock up the pins on the inside of them.

Ignition key would not turn

In most cases the key cylinder is defective, but try this 1st. Get a tube of dry lock cylinder lubricant (about $4) from the hardware store and spray it into the lock cylinder and then work the key around and see if that Free's it up and it turns. If that doesn't work you will need a locksmith to replace the cylinder.

If i were you i would follow air filter hose to the engine then take it off pour a few ounces of Gasoline into engine then try to start this should take air out of the line and the vehicle should resume running again. Good Luck !!!!!!!!

Key won't turn in the ignition.

if the key will not turn in the ignition switch then there is a chance that one of the wafers inside the cylinder has split or jammed and is not reading the key proper. ( this is very common with the new Ford ignitions ) --- the best way to fix this issue is to have a automotive locksmith come out and repair the lock, they will remove the troubled wafers ( #1+#2 ).
now before you call the locksmith you can ' TRY ' to spray a small amount of silicone or teflon based lubrication into the lock and put the key in and out a few times and try to get it to release,, ( NOTE: do not spray to much into the lock -- you are not trying to flood it,, just spray a little bit into the very begining of the cylinder and let the lube run down and thru the lock ).

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold

you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.
