Question about Ford Taurus

Trunk access from back seat

We have a 2005 Ford Taurus. The trunk latch is broken so it wont close. We had to secure the trunk lid from the outside, but we need to use the trunk daily. How do we get to the trunk space through the backseat?

Some vehicles have drop down rear seat, should be a button or pull strap to release. Others do not have the option, and would require removal of the lower seat and seat back by removing bolts.

SOURCE: trunk jammed, driver side latch wont' work, keys wont work

THERE MAY BE A ROD THAT GOES FROM THE KEY TO THE LATCH, IF THAT HAS DROPPED OFF ON ONE END YOU CAN TURN THE KEY ALL YOU LIKE BUT IT WILL NOT OPEN THE TRUNK.
UNDO THE BOLTS HOLDING THE LATCH IN PLACE AND OPEN THE TRUNK, IF THE TRUNK LID HAS LINING ON THE INSIDE IT WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE KEY AREA FOR INSPECTION AND REPAIR.
HOPE THIS HELPS

SOURCE: I cannot open the trunk on my Sentra.The remote

Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

What year is your SE-R? if is newer that 2001, just go to a Nissan dealer and have a cheap key made for you so you can open your trunk. They can get your key code for you. If the valet key is the only key you have, then you may want to get another key made for your car. Your key may have a chip in it that will have to get programed to your car for it to start. But if you get a cheap key, then it can open doors, but will not start the car.

Thanks Jay!

Trunk locks not opening


This is very complex if your not familiar with how Class 2 serial data communications work . When you press that trunk lid release button it sends a low voltage signal to the BCM - body control module. Here is how the factory service info. says how it works .
When the vehicle is in park and the trunk release switch is pressed it grounds the rear compartment lid release switch input in the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM then sends a Class 2 message to the Remote Function Actuator (RFA). The RFA supplies an internal ground for the coil side of the rear compartment lid release relay activating the relay. The rear compartment lid release actuator receives battery voltage through the 15 A trunk release fuse when the relay closes. Ground is supplied by G400.
Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a dealer or some other qualified repair shop that has a factory scan tool or a professional grade type .
You could check the TRK/REL relay in the rear fuse/ relay box .Because you can't test the class 2 data to the rear integrated module. Fuse Block Rear

It seems that my 2005 Lexus ES330 trunk light won't turn off. How to check whether the trunk light is off when the trunk lid is close?


Remove the bulb if you think it runs the battery down. the switch is part of the latch assembly of the trunk.

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.
