99 Nissan Sentra Trunk Release Lever won't work?

Hi everyone, I have a 99 Nissan Sentra GXE, the trunk will not open when I pull the trunk release on the floor, alhtough the gas release (which is the same lever) works. I can only access trunk with my key, or through the backseat. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

PS I have the Haynes Repair Manual but it doesn't mention the release lever.

I'm not sure how you know the weatherstrip isn't leaking,here's what i would do.With a trusted helper,get in the trunk and latch it.Have the helper spray the entire trunk area with a garden hose while you watch for any water leaks.That's the best way to check the weatherstrip for leaks,and it is likely that's where the leak is coming from.

SOURCE: I cannot open the trunk on my Sentra.The remote

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

What year is your SE-R? if is newer that 2001, just go to a Nissan dealer and have a cheap key made for you so you can open your trunk. They can get your key code for you. If the valet key is the only key you have, then you may want to get another key made for your car. Your key may have a chip in it that will have to get programed to your car for it to start. But if you get a cheap key, then it can open doors, but will not start the car.

Thanks Jay!

SOURCE: can't open the trunk of my nissan sentra 1999

you have a bad trunk latch, you will need to replace that latch, its not a hard repair though, like three nuts, you will need to get the trunk open from the inside though, toy with the latch until it opens, you will then be able to replace the part.

does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.
