Question about 2005 Nissan Sentra
I am having the same problem right now. I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra and its doing the same exact thing only it will not open with a key or anything. What should I do?
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.
