SOURCE: trunk latch is switched to locked and won't open on a 95 chrysler

If you are talking about where the key goes, try inserting a small pin or paper clip(straightened) to hold open the little door where the key goes while spraying a bit of WD40 or CRC-56 into the lock. It won't hurt the paint. After spraying, insert the key in and out a number of times. Spray again, this time with the key inserted. Move the key up and down while sliding in and out. This should free up any stuck tumblers. If she still wont open, repeat the process. Still no luck? May need a new tumbler.

SOURCE: the keys are locked in

your choice is to call a locksmith or a dealer. describe your problem and get a price. generally it is easier to take proof of ownership to a dealer and have them make you a new key.

Unlock trunk toyota camry 2004

Deck Lid could be jammed or defective latch. Crawl through to trunk and see if pull latch releases it. Have someone lift on the trunk or push down outside while doing it. WD 40 could help or even better spray with white lithium grease spray. 4 or 5 dollars at auto store.

Key won't open trunk for a 95 oldsmobile cutless supreme

Do the rear seats fold down? If so, crawl in there may be a lever/latch to open the trunk from inside.

Take the car to a locksmith and they can fix the lock.

Is there a fuse for a 02 nissan altima trunk latch

If it doesn't even click, then maybe. My Nissan trunk latch needs lubricating or it doesn't open... Had to crawl into the trunk through the back seat hatch to open the emergency pull-cord. Twice.

My trunk is locked shut,cannot open it. key will not open. latch on side of front door will not open it. is there a way for me to open the trunk?

the only way to unlock the trunk without damage to the lock is to fold the back seat down or remove it if folding is not an option. crawl inside the trunk and pull the safety release handle. it is usually a glow in the dark t-handle hanging by a small cord. it is there in case someone is locked in the trunk and glow in the dark for when you dont have light to look for it. this will release the trunk latch so you can open the trunk and make repairs if necessary.

Trunk lid wont open

Most likely, the plastic snap on the end of the hooked link that runs from the button mechanism down to the latch has popped out of its hole in the latch. Common problem on cars of this age.
If you have fold down rear seats, crawl in the trunk and pop up the plastic snaps that hold the trunk liner in place (if you break some, no worries, they are cheap), and pull up the liner and reach inside and release the trunk latch. Then you can replace the plastic snap on the link, or just secure it to the lock with a zip tie. We bought a new snap and still had to secure it with a zip tie.
If you don't have fold down rear seats, you will need to remove the license plate and drill a hole so you can reach in with a wire hook and release the trunk latch. You need to find a rubber body plug an inch or so in diameter and then drill a hole to fit your rubber plug. This will be easier if you know someone else with an e36 who will let you pull off their trunk lid lining and see what it looks like so you can select the best spot to drill the hole and know just how to grab and pull the trunk latch to release it.

My trunk is stuck shut, how can i get it open? they key will not turn and the latch thing by the front near the gas release will not work either...

If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk.

On my 2002 vw jetta the trunk will not open i have tried both the lever on side of door as well as the button on my key i have also crawled into the trunk from the backseat to use the emergency handle...

· There is no motor per say, (a servo that pulls the cable, youd should hear it, every time other then unlocking with key, or pulling inside emergency latch) the cable that connects to the trunk latch mechanism. There is a servo that opens the trunk when you unlock with key fob, or driver side activation. In the trunk pulling on emergency handle, it is pure cable action. One of the most reported problems is that a trunk will not close. In this instance the usual cause is a broke spring in trunk latch. In your case I am guessing that the cable has become detached from locking mechanism. I have not had this problem, however if I did, my first attempt would involve removing the trunk lid linker, there are about 8 or so screws (with felt on them so they are not so noticeable), remove all screws, liner should almost fall off when all screws are removed. I then could inspect latch, manually unlock, then stand outside of care to fix problem: reattach cable, replace latch, replace cable, there may be some other alternatives depending on specific situation.
