How do i get the back seats down to gain access to the trunk? It wont open


1. You either have a section of rear seat that folds down or you don't. Most cars do and those vehicles will have a manual tab just behind the seat that is connected to a cable that will release the trunk lock unless the lock is broken. So check the top of your rear seat sections for release buttons that enable a section of seat to be folded down. Then look just inside the opening for the manual cable release.

2. If you have a car with no section of rear seat that can be folded down, you will have to unbolt the rear seat to get access to the trunk. You need to remove the bottom section of the seat first. This will just pull up from the front and you can remove it from the car. Then you should be able to access the bolts that hold the upright section of seat in place.

Why my trunk want open


What is year--make--model? Does the trunk have a key lock? Will the key work?

If the trunk release is electric, need vehicle info to look up wiring. Some makes and models, the rear seat back will lower. Maybe you can access trunk, that way, or remove the rear seat-back then see if you can access the trunk?

Cables are not hook up to battery someone close trunk now cant get trunk open


Why are your battery cables off? Does the trunk have a key lock? With some makes and models, the rear seat back will fold down, allowing access to the trunk. If not, you may be able to remove rear seat back then see if you can access the trunk.

If the trunk release is electric, have to check wiring circuit and applicable fuse.

What is model year, I'll try to look up trunk release wiring circuit.

I locked my keys in the trunk of my 2011 Kia optima. I am inside the passenger compartment how can I open the trunk to get my keys?


To avoid getting it towed to the dealer (where they'd remove the rear seat to access the trunk),
you can get out your socket set/tool kit and remove the rear seat yourself and reach into the
trunk. If this car has fold-down rear seat(s) or bolster(s), simply fold them down and reach in.
Haynes manual (or online manuals) for this car aren't yet accessible, but a call to your Kia
dealership's service dept. may get a mechanic on the line who can give you a few good tips, or
pay a handy neighbor to figure out how to remove (and re-install) the rear seat to get access to
the trunk...

Locked keys in trunk is there anyway to open power trunk


There should be a trunk release switch in the vicinity of the driver seat. There also may be a manual trunk release somewhere in the back seat area. Also, you may be able to remove or fold down the rear seat thereby giving you access to the trunk.

I went to open my 2005 Toyota Corolla trunk using my car key. When I rotated the key, the mechanism went 90 degrees CCW but the trunk remained locked. I tried the trunk release in the car but it wouldn't...


If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk. Note, these are instructions for an '04 corolla but I think it should work

My rear folding seats wont fold down to allow me access to my trunk. i know they lock, but my owners manual is locked in the trunk and i do not know how to unlock the folding seats.


When you open the trunk, there should be a knob at the top right of the opening. Pull that and it will unlock the locking mechanism for the rear seats. I just recently figured that one out myself!

Keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock


The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.
