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


First, if it does need an actuator, you can save some money on labor getting it done at an idependent aftermarket shop rather than the dealer. Yes, the part will most likely have to come from the dealer, but let the shop deal with that. You do not have to pay dealership labor rates. It would pay to shop around.

Second, before any parts are purchaced, the actual CAUSE of the problem needs to be verified. Unfortunately, the ONLY way to do that is to get the trunk lid open and inspect the trunk lid latch components. If none of the three methods provided by the manufacturer for opening the trunk in a normal fashion will work, the trunk will have to be accessed by removing the back seat. Once the back seat is removed, a technician can reach into the trunk and remove the bolts that secure the trunk latch to get the trunk open. The latch parts can then be accessed to disassemble, inspect, and repair accordingly.

Please note that this is the ONLY way to do this without causing further damage to the vehicle. DO NOT allow anyone to attempt getting into the trunk any other way! (Do not use pry bars or screwdrivers on the trunk lid, key tumblers, etc..)

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.

Trunk lid will not close. Tried all key positions. Auto button on key and interior release does not open trunk. Opened w / key manually and it will not close. Any ideas on resetting actuator and latch?


check the rubber hose that the wires pass through from the vehicle in to the trunk lid it probably has a broken wire inside. Also check wiring to the boot lock for detachment.
A bit of WD40 or similar fine oil on the lock may free it up too ifs its just stuck which may be worth a try first.

Infiniti G35 trunk won't open


I had this problem as well.
The wiring harness in the trunk is a bit short and some of the wires fray. when this happens, the car doesn't recognise that the fob is close by so it fails to open.
Just pull back the boot near the trunk hinge on the passanger side and look for frayed wires.
