SOURCE: Trunk wont open where is emergency switch inside trunk

I had the same problem as you. Take out the back seat and there is a large access hole to the interior. There are two bolts that are fairly easy to get to. Remove them and the truck latch is removed from the lid and trunk will open.

SOURCE: 2006 Porsche cayenne trunk will not open.

Emergency operation of rear lid
If the rear lid cannot be opened with the radio
remote control (e.g., if the battery of the remote
control is dead), the emergency operation must
be performed:
1. Unlock and open the driver's door with the
vehicle key.
2. Switch on the ignition so that the alarm system
will not be triggered.
3. Check if the TAILGATE function is activated in
the multi-purpose display of the instrument
panel.
Please observe the chapter “TAILGATE” on
Page 119.
4. Press the central locking button in the armrest.
The rear lid is now unlocked and can be opened
with the unlocking handle

SOURCE: The trunk release (both on the door and on the key

If the fuse is okay, check to see that the latch is not bound in some way, and that it is properly lubricated. A dry latch sometimes will not release.

My trunck release button doesnt work in my 2000 dodge stratus.Is there an emergency latch to open it frm the inside?


Nope. The switch, the key, or go threw the back seat. You can pull the plug off the switch and jump it with a wire. If the trunk opens replace the switch. If not, the motor in the trunk needs replaced. Check wiring first though. There isn't a fuse. so you don't have to look for that.

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger and the trunk release on the key fob and the button the dash will not open the trunk. Can you tell me waht could have happened.


Enter into the trunk space after folding the rear seatbacks down. Pull the yellow emergency trunk release handle that should be dangling right beside the area where the trunk latches to the car. This should get the trunk open so that you can expect the locking mechanics for damage: bent steel, something foreign stuck inside, bad cable, etc.

Where is the emergency trunk release inside the car?


the emergency release for the trunk is on the trunk. the next time you open your trunk, look up at the inside of the trunk lid. you should see a white glow in the dark T-handle hanging from a small cord with instructions wrote on it. this is the only emergency trunk release on the car.

2000 Intrepid Trunk Lock


All newer vehicles have an emergency manual trunk release inside the trunk.

This should be basically a rip cord directly attached to the trunk locking mechanism. Most modern ones have a yellow handle on the ceiling of the trunk that will release the trunk latch if it is pulled. Yours may be a different color, but if you get in there with a flash light you can probably trace a steel wire from the trunk latch back to some sort of handle that looks like you can pull it. Its definitely worth a shot.
