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.

you need to take a coat hanger & bend it to fit in the front of the car & pull the latch. I know it's vague but it needs to happen. Or,check to see if the cable broke at the inside latch release & grab the end with a vise grip & pull.

I badly need in my trunk I can hear it clicking but won't pop open in 2010 chevy impala

Try applying pressure down on it right where the latch is, while having someone else open it. It may be jambed and the spring not able to open the latch. Some pressure may loosen it enough to pop it latch.

My trunck release button doesnt work in my 2000 dodge stratus.Is there an emergency latch to open it frm the inside?

Nope. The switch, the key, or go threw the back seat. You can pull the plug off the switch and jump it with a wire. If the trunk opens replace the switch. If not, the motor in the trunk needs replaced. Check wiring first though. There isn't a fuse. so you don't have to look for that.
