    Yes, I have tried that numerous times. It just makes a clicking sound and does not release the trunk.

Have you tried pressing the button that opens the trunk... It is usually in the glove compartment or sometimes it is a lever to the left of the drivers seat

    youll probably just have to get a lock smith to open it.. Thats the best I can think of. Good Luck!

My Honda Accord latch is broken. I can not open the gas tank door and the trunk won't close. It has to be a problem in the latch because it controls both gas tank door and trunk door

emergency release should be in the trunk as for the closing of the trunk, you need to disconnect the cable at the trunk latch until you can get it fixed

After a 45 min highway drive,I get an exhaust smell inside the car. with no exhaust leaks how that possible? on my 2001 grand am 4 cyl 185000 klms

Make sure there are no leaks into the trunk at the rear of the car. When you drive at higher speeds a vacuum is created at the rear of the car and exhaust tends to fill that void. From there it can enter the trunk. Driving with a window open can make it worse.

My lever wont open my gas i need gas.actually even the trunk lever wouldnt open the trunk.....finally the trunk lever i was able to pull up and then i couldnt ...

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.
