Question about 2005 Nissan Sentra

My trunk won't open

I have tried the key, but it won't turn in the lock. The keyfob doesn't work, nor the switch next to the steering wheel. The lever to fold the seat down is in the trunk. Is there a way to put the seat down from inside the car?

    There is no pull tab across the top of the seat. Is there any other way to get the seat down?

Should be a button or lever or pull tab somewhere along the top of your back seats that allow them to fold down..... and your trunk should have an emergency release lever inside the trunk

My igntion is lock on my 2010 hyundai sonta and i have tried both keys


Are you able to turn the steering wheel any? It may only turn a little, but that should be enough. Try turning the steering wheel to the left and holding it there tightly while turning your ignition key. If it doesn't work, try turning the steering wheel to the right and holding it there tightly while turning the ignition key. If that doesn't work, try wiggling the steering wheel by turning it back and forth while trying to turn the ignition key. If it still doesn't allow the key to turn, try activating the shift lock release and shifting the car into neutral. Do this by prying open the small square plastic cover next to the shift lever. With the cover removed, apply the brake with your foot and insert a small screwdriver or bic pen into the hole. Push down and move the shift lever to neutral while holding the shift release down. Remove the pen/screwdriver and replace cover. Now try turning the ignition switch. That should work, but if it doesn't let me know and we'll go from there. a48afaae-b675-4190-9e1b-0a8be3ea56d9.png

The remote key has a 2 coin batteries fitted. These may have gone flat. Point the keyfob at the car and watching the key press the unlock button. On the key fob there should be a small LED light which blinks. If not, the batteries need replacing. Try this YouTube video. I think they are CR2025 type batteries.

Trunk button doesn't work


I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra and have had this problem myself. When you operate the slide switch that is left of the steering wheel on the dash or push the trunk button on your key fob, can you hear the solenoid click, but the truck doesn't open? If it does, open the truck with your key and raise the lid. I found that the lever assembly in the bottom lock was hanging up. I lubricated with WD-40 and using a small screw driver I moved the levers until they moved smoothly. Then activated the key fob switch and it started operating. If the solenoid doesn't work then there probably is an electrical problem. Let me know.

Steering wheel won't lock, key won't come out


If the ignition normally only locks with the vehicle in park position, then check the switch on the gear lever mechanism is working.
If not, then you'll have to jiggle and wiggle that key out or replace the ignition lock.

Key won't turn in ignition


On many vehicles, the key locks the steering wheel. If the wheel is turned, it can keep the key from turning. While trying to turn the key, push the steering wheel hard to the right and if that doesn't work, push the steering wheel hard to the left.

My trunk won't open, I have tried my trunk button and the key won't work, it worked fine a few hours, but even when i try to do it manually it won't open. Also I would look in and try the...


There are 3 phases to fixing your car's trunk lid release problem.

Phase 1: First check the fuse - once you know that's OK, then proceed to phase 2 (below).
The fuse for the trunk lock is
the bcm (pwr) 15A fuse in the instrument panel fuse box (behind panel at drivers right foot)

Check that fuse, as it is the power supply for the button on the dash that sends power to the actuator in the trunk.

Phase 2: Get the trunk open (without taking it to the dealership).
If you have remote keyless entry to the trunk, you could try that - but with the actuator
dead/dying, it shouldn't work.

Here are a couple of ideas to try to enter trunk while (a) actuator isn't working, and (b) all
valet lockout features (designed to deny valets access to the trunk) are in the "Lock" position:

There is the lock cylinder, which you stated is not functioning - put the key in, and it doesn't
turn. Just to be sure, consider: lubricate key with Graphite lock-type lubricant, and retry.

The trunk has 2 valet safetys...the locking rear seats which require access to the trunk to unlock, and then there is a valet switch in the trunk that locks the button on the dash from working to keep valet parking attendants out of the trunk. That may be in the lock position.

You can try accessing the center area of the fold down rear seat and see if you can unhinge the rear seat from there. Maybe reach in with your hand, or an extension-type tool.

there may be a way to fold the hinge away from the seat back so it can be removed from the hinge and give you access to the safety latch in the trunk and open it that way (white handle in trunk).
The white-handled safety latch release is desiged to prevent accidentally trapping children, and
if you can pull it with your extending-type or grasping-type tool, the trunk will open whether or
not the actuator motor is working.

Phase 3: Replace the Problem part.

Your failed part may be either (1) Trunk Release Relay, or (2) Trunk Lock Release Switch

My Satrun ION manual doesn't cover either of these parts, and the online parts houses, e.g.
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carcode,1431624,pgname,Electrical-Switch%2B%2526%252338%253B%2BRelay,a,search.yahoo.com%2BSearch%2Bfor%2B2004%2BSATURN
fail to provide instructions. One of those times a mechanic has to t=rely on his/her native
handiness and/or experience.
To identify which of these parts is bad, locae the Trunk Release Relay (call your dealer parts
dept. for helpful tips on finding it), then operate the dashboard trunk release button with your
ear close tothe relay - if it makes a noise, the problem is the Trunk Lock Release Switch in
the trunk lid, otherwise its the relay.

If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck

Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim


By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.
