SOURCE: Can't "pop" open the trunk

take the remote apart and take the battery and get it matched and replace it you can do this at walmart or a battery store.. youalso need to check the fuses because if the trunkdoesnt open and the fuel door does . there on the same fuse and it could be a more serious problem .. try cleaning out the lock cylinder on the trunk it is exposed so it will get dust and dirt and water in it..

SOURCE: Trunk wont open on my 2001 vw tdi jetta

You can open it old school. Insert the key in the trunk lock in the VW emblem and turn it while pushing down on the trunk lid with the other hand a little bit. It should open. The plastic arm that the motor is pushing to unlock may be broken. I have the same problem. You can see it if you unscrew the fabric from the trunk lid and press the button on the remote. There are about a dozen fuzzy head screws (nicely masked btw.) that hold it. I am still looking for the proper name of the part so I can order it for my car.

Why do my trunk keep popping open every time I put my car in gear or my foot on the brake pedal I have a 1997 crown Victoria


Possible short to power from the brake lights. You may have cracked/exposed wiring in the trunk wiring harness that flexes each time you open the trunk. Check wiring harness at trunk ( you may have to remove tape/loom ) covering the harness to inspect wiring. Check harness where it bends/flexes with trunk opening and closing

Check the release lever, make sure it goes all the way back, nothing in the way, cheetos. etc. Check the trunk, some WD40 on the workings always is good. Check the trunk edge for more cheetos.

My 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited convertible has a problem with the trunk latch. It won't stay closed. It keeps unlatching. Do you know what the problem is? How do I get it to stop unlatching?


I did this to my car once. Be sure the latch isn't closed as you are trying to close the trunk. With the trunk open pop the trunk once, then see if the trunk latches properly.

My trunk keeps popping open by itself, causing the battery to drain.


There is a "wire harness" that leads to switch that opens the trunk. Unplug this. You will have to open trunk manually tho. Key only like the old days,

HHow to open trunk


To open your trunk there is a lever to the left of the driver seat, on the floor. If you lift this it will pop the trunk. If you have the electronic key fob that came with the car , there is a trunk button on it. If you press the trunk button twice the trunk lid will pop open automatically. You can get inexpensive key fobs on line and program them yourself if you do not have an electronic key fob.

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.

Trunk lid pops open when Locking the Vehicle. Have to close it everytime i lock. This happened after an accident and replacing entire trunk lid.


I will do it in my own way since the wiring is messed up, and when i press close on my Remote, the trunk pops open. I will Harness this problem to benefit me since my remote does not have a trunklid switch. I will route the Motor (that has a piston) wire through the switch relay (located just above the vehicle ID plate area), so that opening the trunk lid is only possible when i keep pressing the trunk open swich (on the trunk lid) while at the same time pressing the close/LOCk button on my remote.
