Check trunk switch fuse. Trunk switch or trunk switch solenoid could be bad. Should be able to open trunk with key, that\'s last resort option if others fail.

The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......

SOURCE: Trunk lid won't electrically open

Its possible that your problem isnt electricla, maybe mechanical (physical); check the next procedure about Trunk Lid Lock Cylinder REMOVAL & INSTALLATION to confirm and adjust...

zjlimited_1482.jpg

Fig. 1: Pull the trunk lid lock cable upward from the bracket and slide it out of the lock cylinder plate

zjlimited_1483.jpg

Fig. 2: Pull the lock cylinder retaining clip upward

  1. Pull the trunk lid lock cable upward from the bracket and slide it out of the lock cylinder plate.
  2. Pull the lock cylinder retaining clip upward to release the lock cylinder plate.
  3. Remove the lock cylinder plate.
  4. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Add WD40 oil to lubricate all components; about the fuses, you are right, isnt showed in the manual, but could test and check position 25 and 30 in passneger fuse panel (alarm and locking system).

Keep us updated.

There are 3 phases to fixing your car's trunk lid release problem.

Phase 1: First check the fuse - once you know that's OK, then proceed to phase 2 (below).
The fuse for the trunk lock is
the bcm (pwr) 15A fuse in the instrument panel fuse box (behind panel at drivers right foot)

Check that fuse, as it is the power supply for the button on the dash that sends power to the actuator in the trunk.

Phase 2: Get the trunk open (without taking it to the dealership).
If you have remote keyless entry to the trunk, you could try that - but with the actuator
dead/dying, it shouldn't work.

Here are a couple of ideas to try to enter trunk while (a) actuator isn't working, and (b) all
valet lockout features (designed to deny valets access to the trunk) are in the "Lock" position:

There is the lock cylinder, which you stated is not functioning - put the key in, and it doesn't
turn. Just to be sure, consider: lubricate key with Graphite lock-type lubricant, and retry.

The trunk has 2 valet safetys...the locking rear seats which require access to the trunk to unlock, and then there is a valet switch in the trunk that locks the button on the dash from working to keep valet parking attendants out of the trunk. That may be in the lock position.

You can try accessing the center area of the fold down rear seat and see if you can unhinge the rear seat from there. Maybe reach in with your hand, or an extension-type tool.

there may be a way to fold the hinge away from the seat back so it can be removed from the hinge and give you access to the safety latch in the trunk and open it that way (white handle in trunk).
The white-handled safety latch release is desiged to prevent accidentally trapping children, and
if you can pull it with your extending-type or grasping-type tool, the trunk will open whether or
not the actuator motor is working.

Phase 3: Replace the Problem part.

Your failed part may be either (1) Trunk Release Relay, or (2) Trunk Lock Release Switch

My Satrun ION manual doesn't cover either of these parts, and the online parts houses, e.g.
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carcode,1431624,pgname,Electrical-Switch%2B%2526%252338%253B%2BRelay,a,search.yahoo.com%2BSearch%2Bfor%2B2004%2BSATURN
fail to provide instructions. One of those times a mechanic has to t=rely on his/her native
handiness and/or experience.
To identify which of these parts is bad, locae the Trunk Release Relay (call your dealer parts
dept. for helpful tips on finding it), then operate the dashboard trunk release button with your
ear close tothe relay - if it makes a noise, the problem is the Trunk Lock Release Switch in
the trunk lid, otherwise its the relay.

Trunk wont stay open


You don't say what kind of car. Most trunks have springs to hold them up. Others have gas filled struts to hold them up.

How do I prevent trunk from popping open?


Some trunks have a lever near the trunk latch on the lid to disable electrically opening the trunk. Could be a short causing the trunk open switch to open the trunk. If it doesn't open electrically via a button then you have something bent and the trunk doesn't close properly.

On 2006 saab conv trunk wont unlock using handle on trunk lid, works using remote and door button


Saab have an auto-lock to thier trunks. So that nobody else can open your trunk while you're in the car etc. If you open and then closes a doot the lock should unlock. If not, your modell is only unlockable with key/doorbutton.

I have a 2000 Porsche Boxster that periodically the trunks lock down along with the gas. The car runs great and the battery in the key is not dead. Just the trunks and the gas hinges lock down. I can...


There is a manual way to open the trunks, but they can be difficult to get to. If your Boxter is anything like my 2003 911 (and it is), there is a cable pull directly in front of the passenger front tire. Turn the steering wheel to the full left, then get out and see if you can fish your hand up between the plastic splash guards for this cable. Once you find it and pull it, it should manually pop the front hood/trunk. As for why the electronic popper is not working may be some bad relay or blown fuse. May be a trip to your local Porsche mechanic. Good luck.

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

Trunk won't open


The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.
