How to open 98 cadillac trunk without keys

We had locked our only set of keys in our trunk and found it is literally impossible to get through the back seat to the trunk and the trunk release latch would not work and neither would the glove box release. We pulled the negative cable off the battery and left off for about 2 minutes and when we put it back on it reset all functions and trunk latch worked again. Hope this helps someone else.

Locate trunk latch for dodge charger 2014

I'm not sure what you're definition of trunk latch is so let's cover all the bases.

The trunk latch mechanism is inside the trunk well. When you open the truck lid, look down, right in the middle of the back lip that you would have to lift things over to put them in the trunk. The latch mechanism is right there in the middle. While you are looking in the location, look just to the left as you are standing behind the vehicle, and you will see a handle kind of like the pull handle on the end of the cord for your walk behind mower. That is a glow in the dark, emergency pull release for the trunk latch. If you or a child ever got caught in the trunk for some reason, you can pull that handle to manually operate the trunk latch to allow you to open the trunk lid.

On your key FOB, you have a trunk release button as well. If you push that button twice within 5 seconds, the trunk latch will release. You also have a trunk release button to the left of the steering wheel. It's a round button with a picture of a car with an open trunk lid. You can push that to open the trunk lid as well. To use the button inside the car, or the one on the key FOB, the car must have the transmission in park. It will not release the trunk latch if the vehicle is in gear.

I accidentally pulled the interior trunk release of 2008 volkswag

Try a screw driver,and release the trunk release at the same time and unsnap the latch,the latch thinks it is closed,because the latch never opened back up to allow the striker to go in it and trigger the latch to close,the latch is in closed mode,you will have to manually unlatch the latch sort of speak.

Trunk Problem

Has the key been giving you trouble opening the trunk before, or was this something that suddenly stopped working? Same question concerning the trunk release. If this has been going on for a while (getting worse gradually), try spraying something like wd-40 in the lock, then try the key. The trunk release cable stretches out w/ age and will stop working. If you can get vice grips to grab firmly on the cable, not the release knob, you can pull it out farther than just pulling the knob/lever, it should open. If this doesn't work you can remove the back seat, look to see if something was closed in the latch (a shirt, coat, etc, that might jam the latch)countrycurt0
