My trunk is stuck shut, how can I get it open? I can hear the lock mechanism unlatching using both the key fob and the latch by the drivers seat, but nothing is happening.


The seal around the Trunk is probably a bit sticky. It happens in winter. When you release the mechanism pull up on the trunk. To stop it happening spray the seal with a silicone spray like Jigaloo or dust it with talc.

My trunk is locked shut,cannot open it. key will not open. latch on side of front door will not open it. is there a way for me to open the trunk?


the only way to unlock the trunk without damage to the lock is to fold the back seat down or remove it if folding is not an option. crawl inside the trunk and pull the safety release handle. it is usually a glow in the dark t-handle hanging by a small cord. it is there in case someone is locked in the trunk and glow in the dark for when you dont have light to look for it. this will release the trunk latch so you can open the trunk and make repairs if necessary.

My trunk is stuck shut, how can i get it open? they key will not turn and the latch thing by the front near the gas release will not work either...


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.

I think I locked my keys in my trunk of my 2004 chrysler sebring convertibile? How can I get the trunk open. The trunk release button on the inside does not work.


Does the back seat fold down? If so you may be able to get into the trunk from the back seat. Check to see if a fuse is blown for the remote trunk latch. The owner's manual should help to see if there is a fuse for it.

On the Jetta 2000 TDI, does the back seat flip down, enabling access from the trunk? Like a hatch back, I mean/.


Yup - each seat has a latch and you can gain access to the trunk... the seats can fold flat if you take off the headrests

This has been good for me since sometimes my trunk key or automatic opener doesn't work and I need to access the trunk from the car

2004 TOYOTA COROLLA TRUNK


I have a corolla 2003 and I had the same problem. I turned the key to the left and the lock turned left, engaging the valet parking mechanism. I could not turn the key to the right and could not get access to the trunk because the lever next to the driver seat was disengaged.
The way I solved this problem is as follow:on the back driver seat I pulled the back seat forward to leave an opening and snick my arm in the trunck. Then I grabbed the cable used to latch the seat and I pulled forward, i.e. toward the front of the car. The cable is connectred to the trunck so that it can be disconnected easily if pulled towards the front. If you pull towards the back it will remain attached to the trunck. So grab the cable an pull towards the front, and it will release itself. Since the cable is flexible, you can pull it out of the trunk from the same the opening you put your arm, and then disenagage the driver back seat. Fold forward the back seat and get into the trunk and use the lever in the latch of the trunck to open it. The turnk will open.

If the lock does not turn, you need to disconnect the lock from the mechanism, so that the driver seat lever can start working again. To do this, and with the trunk open, remove the cover holded by nine plastic pins. Do not break the pins. After removing the cover, you will see the lock holded by two nuts. Remove the nuts with a rachet. The lock will be loose, and disconnect the lever that connects the lock to the latch. At this point the driver seat lever will start working again. Close the trunk and verify that the driver seat lever opens the trunk. Now you can open and close the trunk , and have time to call the dealer for a new lock.
Good luck.
