How can I fix my Honda Stream 2001 car boot which cannot open?

I closed the car boot and now cannot open it from the outside so had to come from the inside to put stuff in the boot. I need guidance in unlocking and fixing to boot lock.

I would think you would have to remove the trim/panel to the boot lid from inside to gain access to the lock , there isn't a release cable some where in the boot , these are usually located on one of the side panels in boot may be behind a door/flap , have you the owners manual thiss may refer to this release mechanism if it is fitted hope this helps

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Civic Coupe Manual Doorl locks not working

The driver door can not be locked with the door open on all Hondas. It's a feature to prevent people from locking the door and leaving the keys in the car. You can however slightly pull the door release lever open, and it will allow you to lock the door, so this isn't something you have to fix, it's the way the car was designed. The door locks may have been replaced at some time before you purchased the car, and that may be why the keys don't work. I would check with a locksmith to see what they would charge to make up a key, and also check with a Honda dealer about getting a replacement key. If you show proof of ownership (registration, title, etc) the can provide a key by using the cars vin to cut a new one. Of course, if someone changed the lock cylinders the key won't work. Check what the dealer would charge for a key (from what I've heard, they usually don't charge much, unless it's the key with a chip in it), then the locksmith. Your last option would be to change the lock cylinders yourself, but the cost of the parts, then pulling the door panels off would probably be my last choice to fix them. Good luck, and let me know the outcome!

You may get lucky by spraying penetrating spray like WD-40 inside & all around the latch assembly on door. Use that little red nozzle to get around in behind as far as you can, as well as try to get it along back of sides as well. That will allow it to run down on linkage to locks etc & hopefully free things up & get them moving better. Once it's freed up again, give it a coat of white lithium spray grease and use tube same as you did with penetrating spray, to avoid/prolong repeat in near future. Let spray work a bit then start moving lock manually at first, then try using power after it feels easier, and then keep working both until power lock works good. Don't go crazy & overheat power lock motor, give it a few minutes after trying 5-10 times, before trying again.

SOURCE: Can't get at interior of boot lid lock to fix broken lock.

There should be a very small lever on the lock reciever assembly , it's a left over from the manual cable on previous models ,It will slide in a slotted groove , but will still be present on the lock housing. Entry from rear passanger seating and a good torch a bit of luck and patience .

SOURCE: 1998 honda accord driver side

The lock / unlock operations are performed either electrically or manually directly on the solenoid installed on each door, and has nothing to do with the opening mechanism. In all probability, the metal rod that goes up from the door latching mechanism to the outside and inside handle, has become unattached / dislodged from the unit. This requires taking down the inside of the door panel, in order to reach the latch, and its operating rods. Look elsewhere on Fixya, for instructions on how to dismount the door panel. I think i provided instructions for this in the past.
