Most vehicles that have a power release, also have a manual release. Check inside the vehicle, around the location of the outside filler door. You might have a removable panel, that will reveal the fuel door release cable.
Accually the car itself is easy to open but the trunk is a different story. If the car was unlocked by someone and it set off the alarm it will dissable the release On a lot of late models they have what they call easyout door locks. When the door is open look in the door jam beside the lock and look for a plastic or rubber cover over a hole. Remove this cover and then remove the screw behind it but becareful not to drop inside the door. After removeing the screw you can manipulate the lock out of the door from the outside. Then take a flat blade screw driver and lock and then unlock the door. This in most cases will reset the security system and then the trunk release will work.
The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This
means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of
the front doors. You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.
Are you sure it is the Master Key? Try the key in the glove box lock. The power door locks should unlock the trunk for you turn the key if it is right over to the right turn it right over to the
left . you turn the key to far right to stop the boot been opened when
the doors are not closed.
Yes if your lock actuator is not stuck on unlock.Try unpluging the harness to rhe electric lock,and see if it will lock and stay locked using the key.If ti works then your okay.if you still have the problem then your tounge that holds the trunk down needs to be replaced.
My Passat did the same thing for a while. Where do you carry your keys? My key was activating in my pocket over a long range and popping my trunk open. If that isn't a possibility, you can simply lock the truck in via the control switches over the speaker. Just turn the key to locked. Try that if nothing else, just remember to unlock it when you need to us the trunk :)
I"m having trouble with locking and unlocking my hatch using my remote. I have flipped the white switch in the trunk and it acts as a child safety lock if flipped one direction. However I am not able to open the trunk this way. It acts as a permanent lock. So I figure the switch must be flipped the other direction and need to replace my actuator. Is this hard to do. It looks to me like it two switches holding a bracket to hold the actuator itself after plugging in the actuator from both sides. Is it really this simple?? Is there more to it???
could be the spring release in the lever on the trunk itself. If you can hear the acuator locking/unlocking(that is all it's ment to do) then the spring release is the problem. you need to unbolt the latch from inside the trunk and once the trunk is open you can trace from there. I had the same problem due to a minor fender bender and I just fixed mine last week.
