Question about Lexus Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Open trunk I cannot open the trunk on my 1999 Lexus GS 400. The battery is dead, which is strange since I just replace it about 10 months ago. But I can't get the key to turn in the trunk lock. The remote won't open it either. Any suggestions.

SOURCE: Battery Dead - Can't open the trunk to recharge battery. Help!

The 1994 xj6 sedan. The trunk should be opened by the key unless you have green keys only (valet keys).
If this is the case then open the hood and on the firewall there is a black plastic square box with a + sign on it, lift up the plastic cover, connect your jumper/charger on a low boost and this will give you enough power to push your remote trunk release switch.

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: Battery is dead battery is in the trunk, key

you should be able to access the trunk through the rear seat. check your owner's manual. once inside the trunk, there should be a trunk latch release on this new of a vehicle.

My 1999 lexus gs 400 is having problems with the accelerator


Your throttle position sensor might be stuck on the wide open throttle setting!

Do you have any check engine codes? Is the check engine light on?

It might not be if the TPS is still in the normal range...but is just sticking open.

Car won't start after using Auto headlights on 2005 Lexus LS430


The trunk should auto close when you manually lower the lid to the almost closed position, but it is NOT designed to open up fully when you hit the trunk release on the key fob, nor when you open the trunk manually using the touch sensitive button under the lip of the trunk.
