SOURCE: my toyota camry 1995 key switch won't turn

I have had this problem. There could be a few reasons. ONE. The key itself is worn out...might be time for a replacement. Its amazing how fast that actually happens... TWO my brother who also has the same 95 camry as i do [in another color] had too much weight on his key chain [with all his other keys and twrinkets] for so long that it caused the ignition switch inside to pull down and not line up correctly inside. Which caused the key to only turn partway in the ignition and stop before the car could actually turn on. [He had to replace that part] I hope this has helped.

SOURCE: 1996 toyota corolla car trunk won't open with key or lever

You have a very common problem. There is a lot of dirt and corrosion in your keyway on the trunk lock. The best help I can offer you is to lube it VERY liberally with WD-40, and slide the key in and out whilst spraying and wiping off the dirt. This may help you out.

SOURCE: can not get my trunk open by lever inside or key

The lock latch is held by a spring to be in Normal Close position. It it is in open position then there is 2 possible root causes: 1- The cable pulling the latch to open gets stuck. 2- The spring broken or out of its position. Hope this can help to fix it.

Unable to open the trunk any method. I turned the key to the left and set the lock to security i have learned. How do you take it off this position?


It can only be unlocked with the master key. If you dont have one you will have to go to a Toyota dealer and they can make one for you. Bring proof of ownership tho.

Trunk will not open !


The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of the front doors. You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.

Are you sure it is the Master Key? Try the key in the glove box lock. The power door locks should unlock the trunk for you turn the key if it is right over to the right turn it right over to the left . you turn the key to far right to stop the boot been opened when the doors are not closed.

Keep us updated.

Key won't open trunk. car has no electronic opener


1. make sure you have the right key
2.spray some WD 40 into the key slot
3 Push doe on trunk lid as you turn the key.
4. When you get it open, Lubricat the lock and latch mechanism with a grease, not oil. The oils in the grease will find its way around to the moving parts Good luck. Don't force the key to turn. and don't bottom it out when you insert it.

Trunk will not open


the frame on the drivers side door as you look down, there is a button the pops the trunk. However, if you cannot open it with the remote, it is not likely that this will work as it uses the same mechanism to open the latch. I would definitely unlock the doors with the key, go to the trunk and make sure the the lock is in the "unlocked state", ad press the button in, it should just open

2004 TOYOTA COROLLA TRUNK


I have a corolla 2003 and I had the same problem. I turned the key to the left and the lock turned left, engaging the valet parking mechanism. I could not turn the key to the right and could not get access to the trunk because the lever next to the driver seat was disengaged.
The way I solved this problem is as follow:on the back driver seat I pulled the back seat forward to leave an opening and snick my arm in the trunck. Then I grabbed the cable used to latch the seat and I pulled forward, i.e. toward the front of the car. The cable is connectred to the trunck so that it can be disconnected easily if pulled towards the front. If you pull towards the back it will remain attached to the trunck. So grab the cable an pull towards the front, and it will release itself. Since the cable is flexible, you can pull it out of the trunk from the same the opening you put your arm, and then disenagage the driver back seat. Fold forward the back seat and get into the trunk and use the lever in the latch of the trunck to open it. The turnk will open.

If the lock does not turn, you need to disconnect the lock from the mechanism, so that the driver seat lever can start working again. To do this, and with the trunk open, remove the cover holded by nine plastic pins. Do not break the pins. After removing the cover, you will see the lock holded by two nuts. Remove the nuts with a rachet. The lock will be loose, and disconnect the lever that connects the lock to the latch. At this point the driver seat lever will start working again. Close the trunk and verify that the driver seat lever opens the trunk. Now you can open and close the trunk , and have time to call the dealer for a new lock.
Good luck.
