Trunk won't open

The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

95 camry key not working

This is a common problem when the key and lock wards become worn. I'd see a locksmith who does auto keys. Using the old one, he may be able to produce a new key with a little extra metal on the profile which may work.
Failing that the lock barrel will have to be taken out and matched to some freshly cut keys.

How to locate chrysler towne and country dashboard fuse

1 does it have a picture on the back of the lid of the cover of the dashboard fuse and if so put the cover right next to the fuse control panel and look at the picture of it and you will find the right fuse to take out and put it in a new one.
2 if it doesn't have a cover and the picture on the back of it then I reccomend that you take your vechile to a dealership and they should help you out with that.
3 if that doesn't work bring your vechile into a mechanic shop and tell the person what's wrong he/she will take care of it.
4 if you can't do neither of the above then your in tough luck there and you will need to find a way to figure it out by yourself.

Ingition key will not turn

I had this problem and the fix was some type of trigger in the ingnition module was bent or out of place. This trigger is only to make a bell ring when doors are open and the key is in the ignition. What happens is the key doesnt fully engage with this trigger bent in the ignition module, therefore it will not turn. I had a locksmith come fish the trigger out and everything worked fine, except the warning bells. I've learned to live without them.

I try starting my car this morning and the key would turn but it didn't start, the lights went on, the radio and windows all worked, after a couple of times turning the key, it started. After I start...

clean all the battery terminals, ( you don't say if it turns over and just doesn't fire up ) so check the cables first ,, you could have a number of things happening if it turns over and just doesn't fire, your fuel pump could be losing pressure during the night from bleed off, if thats the case replace it, change the filter, ( fuel) open the distributor cap and check the rotor and spark plug pins inside the cap, remove any build up on it,, a harder fix , remove the air system to the throttle body , and spray carb cleaner into those ports,, there is a sensor located in there, Its just a little bump , but use extreme care when cleaning that , wipe it off with a soft clean rag ,, that should correct your starting problems, how do I know this? I just did it to my 95 camry that had the same issues, I did the throttle body clean , and replaced my fuel pump and filter, starts like it was new, and it has 297k plus on it !!

How to get a Key out of the ignition?

Make sure the gear selector is all the way in park....sometimes the linkage gets fouled up or bent and causes that.

Or your key teeth are wearing down.

Another solution may work if you spray a very short burst of WD-40 into the key hole, get a new key made from the old one and see if that does it?

Dont try to force it. USe the wiggle method (wiggle key up and down, not just in and out).

Of course your ingnition key switch could have a bad spring and worn out?
