Stick red nozzle of WD-40 in as far as you can in key hole & give a good spray, and give it a few minutes to start working then try key fob or key itself, or both at same time.. May take a few tries but you might get lucky. When/if you do get it open, spray back of that latch good with WD-40, then give it a few days & spray it with white lithium grease to help prevent same thing again in future.

I have a 2005 Nissan Sentra . The trunk release button inside the car doesn't work and my keys are locked inside the trunk. Is there a way to open the trunk?


Hi, I'm not sure, but check and see if the back seats lay down. That if you can get inside the car of course.

The trunk of my 2005 Nissan sentra is locked and can't open even with key


may be manual release behind or under back seat and if not you may need to remove back seat and panal which should let you into trunk. once in there should be a release on the trunk inside to open it. most new cars have them to prevent someone from getting locked in trunk. after opened you may want to have lock system replaced or it could simply just need oiled....... hope this helps and good luck

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..)

Problem is with 2007 nissan sentra. The automatic key will not open the trunk and now the lever that opens the trunk from under the driver's seat is also broken


this is strange. is there access to the trunk from the rear seat? if not the rear seat will need to be removed to get to the trunk and then there will be a pull ring that releases the trunk latch. it is a safety requirement on all cars to let someone get out of the trunk

Yesterday the trunk on my 2005 Nissan Sentra would open with a key but not with the trunk release on the dash. Now the key will not even work - goes in but will not turn. How can I get the trunk open?


put some oil in barrel of lock ,if this doesnt work after a day of soaking then go through back seat open boot and lubricate everything in sight and behind the panelling

Locked keys in trunk


I believe you can remove the back seat and get into it. Remove the lower part of the back seat first and remove attaching bolts/screws to remove the upper part of the seat.
