Try pushing the trunk release and turning the key in the lock at the same time.
It sounds like the electric lock has not released for what ever reason.
You should hear the trunk release relay when you push the remote.

    There is no key lock for the tailgate. It is only electrical. IUf it clicks, it may open after a number of tries. Could be a bad relay. It can be opened from the insode. Need to open the spare tire compartment and you shoule be able to reach the release mechanism and operate it manually.

Door locks to side doors will not lock or unlock using either the key fob or door buttons. Back hatch will unlock using key fob


Check the fuse for the door locks first, then if nothing there look for a wiring diagram that shows the ground wire location and verify the ground is made. Also the driver side lock switch button could be the culprit

Key fob unlock does not work


This happen with our 2006 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx LTZ. Open your fob and test the battery. If you measurement is not 3 volts; replace the battery. Our battery was fine, but my fob worked by pressing the circuit board directly. Bought a new case with rubber inserted my old fob board. works fine

2005 MALIBU- TRUNK WILL OPEN BUT WILL NOT STAY UP.


There are two gas charged struts on eother side of the rear hatch. One or both of these has lost there charge and there ability to hold the hatch open. Be prepared for aome sticker shock as they are not cheap!

They might be available in the after market so do some price shopping at your local auto parts stores. Make sure you get a direct fit part if you go with the after market. The new ones should pop right on without adapters.
