SOURCE: trunk jammed, driver side latch wont' work, keys wont work

THERE MAY BE A ROD THAT GOES FROM THE KEY TO THE LATCH, IF THAT HAS DROPPED OFF ON ONE END YOU CAN TURN THE KEY ALL YOU LIKE BUT IT WILL NOT OPEN THE TRUNK.
UNDO THE BOLTS HOLDING THE LATCH IN PLACE AND OPEN THE TRUNK, IF THE TRUNK LID HAS LINING ON THE INSIDE IT WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE KEY AREA FOR INSPECTION AND REPAIR.
HOPE THIS HELPS

My boot wont close fully


  • Press down on your trunk, and have somebody release your trunk's release mechanism from inside your car simultaneously. These systems can become jammed but can sometimes be released if a gentle downward pressure is applied to your trunk while the mechanism is being activated. If this is the problem, apply some lubricant.
  • Clean the latch and the area where it connects to the chassis. If dirt or debris has become lodged here, it can stop the latch from connecting properly. It's a good idea to vacuum the area to ensure no small bits of gravel have become trapped and stopped the mechanism from securing properly.
  • Examine the latch and the area where it connects to the body of the car. Either of these might have become bent out of shape or damaged in some other way if the trunk has been shut with an obstruction in the way. If this is the case, contact your vehicle's manufacturer or a local garage to find a replacement if the elements cannot be repaired.
Check the latch mechanism, it may have accidentally already be in the closed or lock position. If it is, you will have to pry down on the latch tangs with a screw driver while pulling latch handle to the open position.
Latch could also be seized, in that case , use a thin oil liberally on latch mechanism, and work the mechanism open and shut closing and opening with screw driver and boot handle.

My trunk wont open after un locking cars security system but after unlocking trunk from inside of car trunk latch works as long as trunk is open


No mention of make/model but does key fob open doors OK? If so it isn't the fob batteries... Could still be a bad button on the fob but it could be a balky solenoid on the trunk latch. Maybe try 12V direct to the solenoid?

Trunk will not open


Hi Billy,have you tried pushing down on the trunk to take any load off the latch while turning the key? It is possible there is something jamming the latch from the inside.

The "Boot Open" message is displayed o my dash. The trunk lid is closed. The only way to open the trunk is with the key. The Key fob does not work nor do the switches inside the car or in the trunk lid...


Somethings for you to check......

If you open the boot and close the
boot latch (in the middle of the boot lid)with a screwdriver or
something does the boot light go off when you press the little
plunger for the boot light?
If it does not it may be the boot latch. It's also worth checking the
wiring loom on the right of the boot by keeping the boot plunger
pushed in with the boot latch closed as above and squeezing the
wiring loom in various places to see if the light goes off as it
should.it may be a damaged wire in the loom......

Also the plastic trim piece on the rear lower end of the
trunk (boot) is loose, the light comes on. It is held by 4 plastic
pins. When in place properly, no light, when loose, trunk open
light is on, even when trunk is secured.

Good luck

Convertible top does not operate; information: "close luggage compartment" while it is obviously closed. Attempt to insert an extra spacer between the trunk lid hook and the switch lever does not help. EOS...


the micro switch inside the trunk latch is probably faulty.try manually closing the latch on the trunk with a screw driver[dont hurt yourself] and see if the information display recognises the trunk is closed.also does the boot light go off?if not replace the boot lock...good luck

The trunk latch inside the car will not open the trunk .


hi there either the wire that runs down under the carpet through to the boot latch is not tight enough or has snapped or it is not connect to the latch in the boot and has come off it should have a liitle bull bearing at the boot end and will click on to the latch at the top of the boot where the latch is

Open the boot with the key and ask someone to activate the lever while you have a look on the latch in the boot. You should see the cable moving if not, it might be broken or just disconnected.
