I had the same issue today with a 2004 jag.

1. Once I had the locksmith open the door. We proceeded to remove the back seat. Not an easy task, but this is the only way.

A. remove the plastic kick plate on floor leading to back seat. This will allow you to pull out the padded liner that is not part of the seat but cushions each side. It will not completely come out, but expose a star nut that must be turned loose with six more later on.

b. The front of the back seat is held down by two copper u shaped wires, that must be popped up and out of a white piece of plastic, Once this is done you can lift up the seat portion and remove it from the car. You will now see six star bolts that must be removed. After you take them out the round bar holding the upper portion of the seat can be removed or popped out enough so that you can seperate or spread the back portion of the seat from each other in sections. Once this is done you will be able to pull out a section far enough out to gain access to the trunk.

It takes about 15 minutes once you understand what your doing, and about an hour if you have never done it. The trick is allowing the lock smith to open the car. The alarm will sound off for about 2 minutes then stop. Unless you have the rear center console removalbe panel and arm rest, then the only course is exactly what I did, removing the back seat. They charged me 150.00 dollars with me doing most of the work. Not much I could say, as I was the *** that locked my keys in the trunk. Best bet for a Jag is to carry another key with electronic trunk opener mounted underneath the car in a key lock box. Well worth the investment, as most people end up getting their car towed.

It is poor feature on a Jag that the only way you can get in a locked trunk is through the back seat, but this is how it is done.

Believe me, it is the only way other than having it towed to the Jag dealer so he can figure out. Thier is a way to jump a wire under the passenger side dash, but you may end up shorting out the whole electrical system, I dont think it is worth the risk, unless the person doing it, has previous experince. Hope this helps, and happy tearing out your back seat. You can do it, the first time is always a little tough.

    Very helpful since step by step instruction leads you to access and not have to figure it out yourself, I'm a 30+ female and found this to be an easy job considering you use power tools, mind you, I have nails when doing this a week before my wedding.

Good Luck !

    Hi I need to take the bottom cushion out not the back and John what's a badge. Thx Ted

  • AngIe Baldoza Jan 05, 2013

    The badge on the trunk lid is just used to open the trunk when it's unlock, meaning that it holds no function if you locked your keys inside the trunk.

My 1996 jaguar vanden plas trunk switch on the driver side of the car doesnt work and my key doesnt work. How do i hotwire the trunk to make it open?


check fuses and relays --check power to switch and test switch if switch bad replace and if need access now can jump switch to release actuator --but if key doesnt work either the problem sounds like a damaged latch or debris stuck in latch lock --if key turns try pushing down and up on trunk if latch is not cooperating then will need to remove rear seat

Is there a fuse for a 02 nissan altima trunk latch


If it doesn't even click, then maybe. My Nissan trunk latch needs lubricating or it doesn't open... Had to crawl into the trunk through the back seat hatch to open the emergency pull-cord. Twice.

My friend locked my keys in my trunk and the button by the dash wont open it or the spare d-pad i had. it keeps clicking like its trying to open but it wont. i have my drivers test for my license tomorrow...


If you go to a Nissan dealer with your vehicles VIN number, they should be able to make another key for you to use to get into the trunk. Or you could call a locksmith to open the trunk for you.

Or, if the doors were not locked when you locked the keys in your trunk and you have access to the rear seat you can remove the seat and try to reach in from the seat side of the trunk to grab the keys.

I read about this in an online forum, heres the url:

http://forums.nicoclub.com/rear-seat-removal-in-2002-sentra-t408431.html

Read this and I think you will be able to get the trunk open.

There is a trunk release lever inside the trunk on the locking mechanism, if you can reach that
you will be able to open the trunk. But you will have to be able to get inside the car to be able to do this.

Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.

Trunk wont open where is emergency switch inside trunk


I had the same problem as you. Take out the back seat and there is a large access hole to the interior. There are two bolts that are fairly easy to get to. Remove them and the truck latch is removed from the lid and trunk will open.

My trunk will not open on my 2002 ford focus


It sounds like your latch has double locked. Here is the fun part, can you drop your rear seat and get into the trunk? If you can look for a tag that is possabily glowing pull it to release the emergency latch on the trunk. then with your finger lock the latch and check to see if it is leaving a large enough gap fot your pinky finger to fit in. if it is then you have reset it. if not then pull the emergency release a few more times

Locked trunk


For some stupid reason Chrysler put a switch in the trunk that if tripped prevents it from being opened. You'll need to get into the trunk through the back seat. On the latch there is a small white switch. You need to move it to the unlock position. If you can find emergency release in the trunk that will open it and you can find the switch from the outside.
