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)..

I have a 1999 Pontiac Grand AM GT the trunk wont open by key or both release buttons on the door and keyless entry. It sounds like its trying to but wont. I removed the speakers on the back dash and...

The same happened to my durango. Just get a can of wd 40 and squirt it inside the lock and anywhere you can and jiggle it around a little bit. It should open up. Let me know how it goes! Good luck!

My trunk wont open wit my key or by button

Possibly frozen, not sure what else could cause both and if yours is like mine you cant access from the backseat if there up already. Try some lock deicer or WD-40. Even if its not frozen i couldnt hurt.

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

First off all you need to do is remove the back speaker on the drivers side by undoing the two plastic clips that hold the speaker in place then stick your arm through the speaker hole and pull the strap inside the trunk to let the sits down then put the speaker back and your good to go.

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.
