Hi there . Disconnect your car battery for 20 seconds and try again. Its not such a common issue but this is how you will open the trunk. If it happens again ... do the same. To replace that solenoid is like buying a new car lol. let me know... jo

Glove box door flaps all the way down when I open the glove box.

Look up inside the right or left side of the dash where the glove box closes. There should be a screw that holds stop your talking about. Re attatch it. Unscrew the screw. If broke then use a small nylon strap n secure it to that screw n to the place on the inside of the glove box door.

2007 Toyota Avalon, trunk will not open with key fob or button in car, no noise when I press either, have a flat tire and can not get in the trunk

Button inside glove box (on left side) disables trunk opening...just push it again and trunk can be opened...worked for my 2007 Avalon. I must have bunped it by accident to disable the trunk and didn't realize the button existed. Toyota dealer said bring it in for $125 diagnostic but then I saw the cure in the car manual.

Whre is the trunk release button inside the 2002 nissan altima ???

if there is not a lever near the floor on the left hand side of the driver's seat, then check your glove box. Sometimes they put a button in the top right corner of the inside of the glove box. If it is not in either of those two places, check your center console (near the shifter), or in the small compartment in between the driver's and passenger's seats (if you have one). These are the normal places that you should be able to find a trunk release button ... if it is not in any of these places, you might not actually have a trunk release inside your car -- you might just have to use the key to open it.

My battery is dead and I was told of a key inside of the remote to get in above the license plate key hole, but I can't find the key inside the remote. How can I get into my car?

A key should have come with the key FOB used to open rear hatch, lock glove box and center console. If don't have that key, you can jack car up, apply power to positive terminal of starter and a chassis ground, and the FOB should work.
