With many cars you can go through the back seat in order to unlatch the trunk lock with a screw driver, though I believe the Sentra has a rear seat reinforcement panel that has much smaller openings. I read where you wrote you have the "same problem" though we do not have the ability to see what you have seen and made that comment on. If you please, let me know more specifically the initial problem that you identified with.

Regardless, if you cannot open the lock with the key, then the lock tumblers have probably failed. It is quite possible someone may have tried to break in your trunk, ruining the tumblers in the mechanism. You need to replace the trunk latch. It is rather unusual that it would have failed on your car - it is only 9 years old.

Trunk latches have varying degrees of difficulty with regard to installation, though if not mechanically inclined, a repair shop may not charge more than $20.00 to install. This is, however, simply a guess as to how much you would be charged. You would do well to spend some time with your local yellow pages. Price the lock through Nissan, and compare repair shops to Nissan's repair facilities.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya

I had the same problem with my girl friends car. I opened the trunk with the key and while pressing the trunk button on her key-less entry repeatedly just watched the mechanism inside the trunk. It was an easy fix. The assembly just needed to be snapped back in position. Hopefully thats all thats wrong with yours.

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

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.

Can't open the trunk of my nissan sentra 1999


you have a bad trunk latch, you will need to replace that latch, its not a hard repair though, like three nuts, you will need to get the trunk open from the inside though, toy with the latch until it opens, you will then be able to replace the part.

2006 nissan sentra trunk doorrreplacement


all you have to do is inspect the old trunk door how it is attached to the hinges.

be careful on the tension bars that are lifting the trunk. once you released them, the trunk would just fall down.

there are two of these tension bars, they are like springs to help you lift the trunk and they are very tricky to remove and install
after you have done that then it just a matter of removing 2 bolts on each side of the hinge and remove the trunk.

if you have electrical accessories attached to the trunk such as solenoids or trunk cables, remove them first.

then do the reverse on installation.

you may want somebody helping you hold to the trunk before you remove the bolts. they are heavy.

tnx 4 using fixya,
