SOURCE: 97 Camry - trunk will not latch closed

Sparay lock assy with lubricant, and look where release cable attaches to lock assy, and push/pry it one way or the other to get it to move, opposite of where it is. Lube cable too.

SOURCE: The latch on my trunk wont lock or close the trunk

It could be the little lever next to the driver's seat that you pull up to open the trunk. Mine got bent and when I open the trunk with it, I have to kind of push it to the side so that it clears the lever for the gas cap.

SOURCE: 97 toyota camry trunk latch is stuck not allowing

I have the same problem. I've found that if you push down on the trunk lid very firmly eventually the latch settles in and will open with the pull lever next to the drivers seat. I usually pull up and push down to mimic the closing motion in a firm manner and after a few tries this allows me to open it up. Consequently, I've begun to close the trunk lid with some force, slam it if you will, and this seems to prevent this from happening. I've lubed the latch with no success either. Just a Band Aid solution, not an actual fix.

The trunk latch is not adjusted correctly. I suggest that you losen the bolts that hold the bottom latch and slide it up about 1/8 to 1/4. Then try it. Keep adjusting it till it latches. That should do the trick. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Avalon trunk won't latch and stay closed. I

If it has a trunk release it sounds to be frozen..Also some close themselves electrically...But I am sure you would know if it is electric or not..If not check for a trunck fuse in the fuse box or the owners manual would be the best...If it is a manual trunk and is stuck or frozen you should be able to move the trunk latch with a big flat prybar...And if it is out of alignment the adjustment is at the striker that is mounted to the lid and not the latch itself....Hope thhis helps......Metalpoet

Trunk will not close


check that latch is releasing when using remote. remote uses a cable to pull latch and cable may need to be lubed causing the latch to stick open. Let me guess if you slam a couple times it will latch, lube the actuator cable and latch well. hope this helps

HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRUNK OPEN ALARM



The 2012 Camry's trunk lid has a 'trunk open' alarm that shows up on the instrument panel as 'door open' red icon. It also turns on the door open beeping sound so long as the trunk lid is open. This is normal and is usually not a problem..

However, if you should need to carry a large item in the trunk and can't close the lid, be prepared to listen to the incessant door open sound with no means to turn it off!!

The trunk lid alarm 'switch' is operated by the trunk latch when you open or close the lid. By manually operating the latch to it's closed position, you can temporarily silence the alarm.

Using a small screwdriver, you can easily press the actuator and turn the alarm off.

Picture 1: trunk lid latch in the OPEN (Alarm ON) position.

**WARNING**
YOU MUST RETURN THE ACTUATOR TO THE OPEN POSITION (ABOVE)
(ALARM ON) BEFORE YOU CLOSE THE LID. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DAMAGE THE LATCHING MECHANISM
**WARNING**

DO THIS WITH THE TRUNK OPEN LEVER OR WITH THE REMOTE TRUNK OPEN BUTTON.

Picture 2: trunk lid latch in the CLOSED (Alarm OFF) position.

IF YOU TRY TO CLOSE THE LID WITH THE LATCH IN THIS POSITION YOU MAY DAMAGE OR BREAK THE LATCHING MECHANISM

1999 honda accord coupe ex Trunk light doesn't work


If you have 12V at the WHT/BLU connection to the trunk light, operating the trunk latch causes a switch to close and connect the other lead to ground. If you jump the ORG lead directly to ground, the trunk light should come on and verify the latch switch is defective. It also is possible the trunk light socket is defective

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.

I have a 96 jetta, and my trunk release button doesn't work. how do I fix it. Plus I put the key in the trunk to open it, its always worked, now it doesn't. I need my trunk, I have a small child...


The trunk release rod is made of plastic and it is adjustable, it came apart. You have to fold down the back seat, remove the trunk lid liner and pull on on the plastic piece connected to the latch mechanism on the deck lid. It is a little difficult but is the only way to get in. You can buy the plastic piece from V.W. its cheap. When you install the new piece, use a screw driver to close the latch and try to open it with your key fob or button, this way you won't shut it and not be able to open it because it is not adjusted properly. there should be very little play (movement) between pod and latch if adjusted correctly. The rod connects to a vacuum pod for the key fob to operate the trunk remotely. good driving

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Trunk wont stay closed


Several times I've been able to fix this problem by tightening the bolts that hold the trunk latch.
If that doesn't work, order and install a new latch. After fixing the latch, find a friend, and
get into the trunk, and make sure that the emergency release (for trapped children) also
still works.
