with a key unlock doors before attempting to open trunk there may be a button to push on the inside of vehicle also unsure on the button part some alarm sytems wont allow you to open trunk with the doors locked
WHEN YOU SAY THAT THE TRUNK WONT OPEN, DO YOU MEAN FROM THE INSIDE OR THE OUT?
WELL IF YOU CANT OPEN THE TRUNK FROM THE INSIDE. TRY OPENING IT FROM THE BACK WITH THE KEY. ONCWE YOU OPEN IT LOOK WHERE THE TRUNK LID MEETS THE CAR WHERE IT MAKES IT S LOCKING CONNECTION. ON THE LEFT SIDE THERE IS A MECHANISM THAT YOU PUSH IN SO YOU CANT OPENING IT. JUST PULL IT AND IT WILL ALLOW YOU TO OPEN THE TRUNK FROM THE INSIDE. GOOD LUCK.
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.
First off, Check for obstuction/s in or around solenoid drive drive rod.Second,if no problem found.clean up and lubricate contact jaws with white lithium grease. and you should be good to go. While you have the grease in your hand LUBRICATEthe door strikers too. Hope this cures you ailment
Make sure the drivers door is open and push the button on the drivers door to open trunk. Keep the drivers door open while you open trunk. If you close the drivers door before opening it, it won't open. Well this is what happens to our car. Don't know if it's a fault or the design but this does work for us.
if you do hear the click noise then that means your trunk is now unlocked. Try giving it as much force as you can while someone else is hitting the trunk release, your hinges for your trunk are probably hung up on something.
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.
