I know when my Taurus trunk was stuck, I could use a screw driver to help "jack" the trunk back into place and open. With the key turned to open, pull on the truck and try to wiggle it open, else use the screwdriver to apply leverage. Usually this is caused by either the locking mechanism being out of alignment, or the catch has moved. hope this helps

SOURCE: Side door was slammed shut hard and now door wont' open

There must be a way to get the inside panel off. Then you could see and work the handle levers. From the handles to the latching mechanism, small rods work them. They attach on both ends. You will be able to see how the handles trip the latch, then grab the right rod and pull or push it in the right direction to open the door latch. You can do it, hard to describe w/o seeing one, but all work similar. Little rods, that's all you need to know. Uh, well, getting the door panel off is the biggest hurdle. Several screws, some may be hidden, be patient, plastic pin type fasteners along the bottom and up the sides of panel have to be popped out-usually one about every 4-6 inches. Once you get it loosened up, you will easily find the rest of the attaching points. Lift the panel up from the window channel and away. Peel the plastic ("waterproof barrier") film off carefully. You will want it to get a good reseal when you are done. Now you can see the inner parts, and how the handles operate the latch.
Once opened, spray with a penetrant, check the door sill all around, check for visible reasons it stopped opening. Sometimes the rods get stretched or bent, and the handles won't work. Good luck, big "do not slam" sign on that door, okay?

I need to disengage the locking mechanism on my sliding door. It sounds like it unlatches but will not open. HELP PLEASE!


You will need to remove the inside panel from the inside of van to access the cables/linkage to see if they are disconnected, try opening from the inside button, also check lock mechanism to see if it is unlocking both electrically and manually. If you slammed real hard you may have done something to the latch.

Nissan sentra 2006 My trunk wont open && I spent 2 1/2 hrs trying to break in from the back seats. trying to reach the seat release but cant. The key or remote wont open it. The car latch wont open...


does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.

Boot wont close at all


The latch may be stuck in the "open postion" you might try spraying some WD-40 on the latch. Try working the handle a couple times.

My trunk popped open out of the blue and now it wont close


Spray some lubricant over the locking mechanism and see if it closes because it might have seized up.

Mine did the same. The release as you know is electric on the boot rear button - and not mechanical as on other cars. The switch is telling the lock that you want it open still, so it will not latch. Try lightly pushing the button again a couple of times, and it may click off again, and Bob's your Uncle!!! I spent 10 minutes closing the boot lid with varying degrees of slamming before I discovered this remedy. Good Luck!
