SOURCE: I have a 2006 Dodge Charger and the trunk release

Enter into the trunk space after folding the rear seatbacks down. Pull the yellow emergency trunk release handle that should be dangling right beside the area where the trunk latches to the car. This should get the trunk open so that you can expect the locking mechanics for damage: bent steel, something foreign stuck inside, bad cable, etc.

SOURCE: the trunk won't open w/ remote or elct. sw. only

Hello. Chances are that the Unlocking mechanism in the trunk is either out of alignment or broken. Take a close look at it. It is where the trunk lid actually latches and locks. See if it is loose, or bent, or broken.

SOURCE: broken trunk release button

I purchased a Chiltons through www.eautorepair.net and looked up the Relay for the trunk release button on the dash. I found the location under the fuse panel under the drivers side and found the relay was not pluged in. I conected the relay and to my dismay the button worked.

SOURCE: 1995 dodge neon trunk will not open. Key works

Hello, you could pick up one of those little containers of lock deicer and lubricant and spray it in the key lock. From the description the key lock works intermetiatly. After you put the spray in work the key in and out a few times and work at turning the lock. While your trying to turn the key try moving it in and out slightly. Your key lock might just be freezing up from lack of use.

My trunk warning light on the dash isn't going off


This warning light illuminates when the trunk lid is not closed securely with the ignition switch in any position.

How do I get the trunk sensor to shut off on the dash?


Close the trunk.... Just kidding

this might sound odd but it sound like the sensor that sees the trunk as closed is either mis adjusted or faulty.

spray a squirt of penetrating oil like wd40 into the receiver that secures the trunk lid. For example the lid should have a loop or square of metal that when the trunk lid is closed joins with the locking mechanism.

Shoot a a squirt of we 40 into the locking mechanism and see if the light goes out.

The trunk light stays on the dash and wont go off even with the trunk closed.


Is the boot light staying on? If it is then the switch is faulty!

Trunk light will not turn off


Trunk lights usually turn off through the latch which is located in the trunk lid. It would be located to the inside of the trunk under the license plate. There should be some wires going to the mechanism. You can open the trunk and use a screwdriver to activate the latch and simulate what happens when the trunk is shut. Move the latch back and forth a little and see what happens. There may be a bad connection or faulty latch mechanism.

Dash light looks like a car with trunk open is lit up. All doors and trunk are secure. What is the cause?


The trunk lid is not closed tightly enough....or the trunk lid switch is not properly adjusted.
Try closing the trunk lid a little harder once to see if it works,,,or have someone push down hard there while you watch the panel light.


Hopes this helps

I have a 2002 chevy cavelier, i used the button on the dash to open the trunk, now the trunk will not latch when i close it.


Try pushing the button under the dash back into its normal 'unactivated' position, and see if the trunk will latch shut. It could be a sticky latch mechanism in the trunk, which some silicone lubricant or WD40 might help to free up. Check also that the latch has not actually returned to the 'locked' position prior to trying to close the trunk. That would definitely stop you from closing the trunk properly! Try unlocking the trunk latching mechanism again.

Trunk light on ~ trunk not open ~ alarm going off


look for a what is called a valet switch under the dash.(it is a pushbutton switch or a toggle switch.) Have somebody help you and turn the key all the way to where it wants to crank the engine and press the button switch or flip the toggle switch at the same time . within 5 seconds at least.your antitheft light will come on and your alarm will sound once. That should bypass the anti theft locking and reset the ECU .Then try to start the car. I don't know if it will work , but give it a try.
