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.

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.

There should be an emergency pull somewhere that opens it from the inside.

Wrong keys or wrong car?. lOL
the cable release won't work if the trunk kew was in lock horizontal position. It needs to be vertical when key is removed. More penetrating fluid and try to force key rocking back and forth in and out. Use lots of wd40 or penetrating fluids and repeat. This will work. Also make sure you are using a master key only.

My 1997 toyota camry trunk will not open all of a sudden will not open with the key or trunk lever. what do i do ?


Hi! Chances are the clip that holds the rod on the lock has broken, the only thing left to do is to remove the rear lower seat cushion first and then the upper cushion if its not a fold down seat, and reach for the emergency latch inside the trunk. Good luck!

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 won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

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.
