Trunk won't pop-open

I have a 2000 Mazda Protege LX. My car trunk won't pop-open with the lever from inside the car, but only opens with the key. The lever is also loose.

All electrical users are dependent on battery condition; the starter draws 120-200 amps of current and drops even a good battery down a volt or two.
The tolerance of such niceties as the door locks and trunk release are also dependent on the battery and the voltage and current needs for them to perform can vary widely so if the battery is low, many items will cease to operate properly, the starter first and foremost since its needs are way beyond the load represented by the accessories.
If this problem occurs suddenly, the battery may be OK but its post clamps may not be contacting any longer so cleaning the battery posts and the clamps that sit on them is the first thing to try. You can do a basic check to determine if battery or clamps are at fault by having a friend with a meter check across the battery and trying to start the car; if one measures directly on the battery posts and the battery stays at 12.6 volts while trying to start the car, then the battery clamps or the connection at the starter is at fault. Alternately, if the meter probes are placed on the battery clamps and the voltage plummets when the stater is tried, the clamps are definitely at fault.     A special wire brush with a male and female end can be had at any parts store and will do a good job on the two mating parts.
NOTE: When fussing around with your battery, ALWAYS remove the ground (negative) clamp FIRST. If your tool bumps something that is grounded, nothing bad will happen and then the positive one next because if you then get between the positive post and some chassis part, again, nothing will happen because the negative end is already separated from the chassis.

SOURCE: my lever wont open my gas door....help i

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

You can try to remove the trunk switch and cross the two wires on the back of the switch if the switch is bad. If that does not work put 12volts to one wire and ground the other to the metal of the car. If the latch release is good it should pop open. If the solenoid on the latch is bad your going to need a lock smith.

Key won't open trunk for a 95 oldsmobile cutless supreme


Hi,
Do the rear seats fold down? If so, crawl in there may be a lever/latch to open the trunk from inside.

Take the car to a locksmith and they can fix the lock.

Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim


By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.

Putting the back seat down in a 97 Mazda Protege


The release on an LX or ES model is at the top of the seat backs, near the door opening, for the rear seats. The rear bench is a 60/40 split on these models. The rear seat does not lay down on the DX models.

Car trunk problem


Open the boot with the key and ask someone to activate the lever while you have a look on the latch in the boot. You should see the cable moving if not, it might be broken or just disconnected.
Cheers.
