If your trunk release button is electric, and not working because you need to turn the key to give it power, remove the button and use a piece of wire to jump power to it from the battery. This will get your trunk open! (don't forget to have a spare key made)

Locked my keys in the car but the trunk is open


if they do fold down reach in with a coathanger to reach the releases.. if not.. they bolt in and cant be removed from the trunk side as they were installed from the inside.. but a slim jim can open the car.. call law enforcement and they will come by and open it for you..especially if there is an issue like your child locked inside(or your dog)..

How to get my 94 geo prizms back seats to fold down


old post but is a tricky feature, never posted here.

prizm = toy corolla.
so the operators guide is more easy to find.
4 0 million corolla's made, a world record.
and means facts on it not rare.
page 16 covers this, and has a special switch there,
to prevent what you are attempting.
per this drawing.


22020842-5jivdbcvwbjyt0yxwjt3tz1t-1-0.jpg "This system deactivates the lock release
lever so that things locked in the
trunk can be protected.
1. Push down the security lock levers
to lock the rear seatbacks.
On vehicles with built-in child restraint,
only the left seatback has a lock lever and
can be lowered. The right seatback cannot
be folded down.
After locking the rear seatbacks, try folding
them down to make sure they are securely
locked, otherwise, someone could
get into the trunk by folding down a rear
seat."

so if your car has this feature. and is ENABLED>
only locksmith can help you.
drive there and get it cured.
easy no?

now page 16b, with out this feature.


so we cant really answer, as we dont really know which car you have option wise. but i answered you, both ways.

22020842-5jivdbcvwbjyt0yxwjt3tz1t-1-1.jpgWhy not buy the operators guide and not be in a fix NEXT time.
yah think?

I went to open my 2005 Toyota Corolla trunk using my car key. When I rotated the key, the mechanism went 90 degrees CCW but the trunk remained locked. I tried the trunk release in the car but it wouldn't...


If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk. Note, these are instructions for an '04 corolla but I think it should work

My daughter locked my car key in the trunk of my 2001 oldsmobile alero. Is there another way to get in the car?


you could use a slim jim if you have one but i can not tell you how to make one due to laws. but if you need to you can call any towing company and they can unlock your car for you. and if your rear seats fold down you can grag the keys out of the trunk that way. but if your seats dont fold down call a locksmith and they can make a new key for the trunk for you with out the old key.
hope this helps
please rate me if you would
thank you

I cannot fold down seat


Try looking for a strap in your trunk it should be located at the upper inside of your trunk, there could be one or two straps, when you pull on these straps they act as a release lever for your rear seats, pull the straps toward you and push the seats forward from the trunk side.

2001 olds alero rear seats


There shouls be 2 straps inside the trunk at the top. Both on the driver side but one is for the left side and one for the right side seats. Pulling on the straps releases the 'lock' that should then allow you to pull down the seats from the back seat area.
