Question about 2005 Nissan Sentra

Yesterday the trunk on my 2005 Nissan Sentra would open with a key but not with the trunk release on the dash. Now the key will not even work - goes in but will not turn. How can I get the trunk open?

There's a switch inside the trunk wear the trunk latches...It's some sort of safety thing. Switch it and it should work! These things always accidentally get switched the position you don't want it!

Put some oil in barrel of lock ,if this doesnt work after a day of soaking then go through back seat open boot and lubricate everything in sight and behind the panelling

I have a 2005 Nissan Sentra . The trunk release button inside the car doesn't work and my keys are locked inside the trunk. Is there a way to open the trunk?


Hi, I'm not sure, but check and see if the back seats lay down. That if you can get inside the car of course.

The trunk of my 2005 Nissan sentra is locked and can't open even with key


may be manual release behind or under back seat and if not you may need to remove back seat and panal which should let you into trunk. once in there should be a release on the trunk inside to open it. most new cars have them to prevent someone from getting locked in trunk. after opened you may want to have lock system replaced or it could simply just need oiled....... hope this helps and good luck

Problem is with 2007 nissan sentra. The automatic key will not open the trunk and now the lever that opens the trunk from under the driver's seat is also broken


this is strange. is there access to the trunk from the rear seat? if not the rear seat will need to be removed to get to the trunk and then there will be a pull ring that releases the trunk latch. it is a safety requirement on all cars to let someone get out of the trunk

None of the three methods to open the trunk of my 02 Sentra works


Stick red nozzle of WD-40 in as far as you can in key hole & give a good spray, and give it a few minutes to start working then try key fob or key itself, or both at same time.. May take a few tries but you might get lucky. When/if you do get it open, spray back of that latch good with WD-40, then give it a few days & spray it with white lithium grease to help prevent same thing again in future.

Can not open trunk


Sounds like the trunk latch actuator is out.

My trunk does not open no longer


check the hatch adjustment on the trunk when it is open. This may be causing the auto pop feature for your keyless and your trunk pop on your dash to the left of your steering wheel to not work. But your key should still be able to open it
