SOURCE: VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote

If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.

SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325 - key locked in trunk

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Sonata Door Lock Problem

I had this problem. Through some research and asking some service personnel I found out it is a fairly easy fix. You will need to buy a new relay switch for the door locks. The dealer will/should know what you need. They are located (two of them, buy two and replace both) on the back side of the fuse box. It is not that easy to get back there. I had to lay on my back with my head up under the instrument panel. They are visible and can be removed if you take some time and be careful. Once I knew what I was looking at, it was easy to replace and the remote works like a charm. You can go to an auto supply, like Autozone, and they should have a schematic to show you where these relays are.

SOURCE: my key wont unlock the trunk anymore but the remote opener does.

There is a cable that runs from the key cylinder to the latch mechanism. There are clips that hold the cable housing in place, and if one of those comes loose then turning the key just moves the housing without releasing the latch. Check the clip closest to the latch. To get the trunk open drop the back seat, crawl in, and pull on the cable.

It is also possible that the cable is broken or damaged and needs to be replaced -- I assume you will then need to replace the enrite assembly.

SOURCE: Beetle convirtible trunk won't open.

I was looking for a solution but found none.  Here is what happened.  I opened my trunk and wound up pulling on a little red plug that will open the trunk.  The red plug pulled loose in my hand.  The cord on the red plug snapped in half.  What I did not know was that there was a small plastic clip that had pulled loose.  The clip connected the various releases (remote, door switch, and inside the trunk handle) to the actual latch.  

Here is what I did.  First I removed the back seat and the frame to the hole that goes back to the trunk (this is a convertible).  The bottom of the seat pulled up and had a rod connected to the car.  I pulled the rod out of the hole and slipped the other side off.  Next I removed the head rests off (they popped up and off).  I used an hex wrench (I think 8mm).  There were three bolts on the bottom of the seat back.  The seat back then comes out.  The frame has 4 or 5 more hex bolts.  Now the hard part.  I was able to reach in and remove a screw under the handle release.  Then I pulled out the plastic inside cover to the trunk, enough to reach a small rod that extended up from the trunk latch.  This released the trunk, allowing me to repair everything.  I replaced the plastic plug cord with a metal cable (this time wrapped around the metal arm of the trunk release).  I put the little plastic connector back on (it did not break, just popped loose).  Now everything works great again.  
Good luck!

2003 Kia Optima doors are unlocked but wont open. How do I get the doors open in order to remove the panels to fix the problem?


will the drivers door not open whilst the key is turned in the key lock ?if not can you open the trunk with the key , lean into the trunk and there should be a catch to release one of the rear seats down, then get some one small , scramble through to the rear of vehicle and open back door from inside , hope this helps,when you get into vehicle check the fuse for the central locking as might save you stripping out the door panel,if fuse ok just strip out the drivers door as this is the actuating lock that sends the signal to the other doors
