This happened to me many times. Usually the little rod that operates the lock falls off because the little plastic clip gets broken that holds it to the lock. There are two solutions. The first is to take out the top of the back seat of your car and reach back to the exposed lock area and open the trunk. If your lock is not exposed, then you may have an internal lock release switch inside the trunk to prevent kids from being trapped inside. If your car has this button, look for it with a flashlight or read your owners manual to get the location. On Mercedes, its a lighted green light, so you can see it in the dark. Just press it and the trunk opens and then you can gain access to the back of the lock to see if the rod came loose.

If access to trunk from rear seats, use emergency release to open, clean and lubricate all moving parts, check fuses

Cannot turn key to open bonnet on a 2002 ford focus


Bonnet meaning the trunk? Shoot some white lithium grease into lock. Push down a little on trunk lid while you jiggle key while turning. If doesn't work,let the rear seat down and pull the inside trunk release tab and check it out. don-ohio (:^)

The tail light lamps don't come on when I use the wireless key entry system but when I open the trunk they come on but then go out when I close the trunk.


Call a lock smith. Your insurance will most likely pay for lockout service. Your other choice is to pry the lock out, and then use a large screwdriver to turn the latch, which will open the trunk.

Trunk solenoid opens but wont close until I press the release repeatingly


No need to remove latch unit. Just spray with a good quality grease. ie lanolin or silicon. This usually fixes the problem. Don't use WD40 or any of the derivatives as thil will attract dust etc and cause more trouble

82 benz trunk wont open dead baterry


If you use the key to lock all the doors, the trunk locks also, so if you have a dead battery, you probably don't have vaccuum to open the locks, because all the locks are vaccuum activated. Charge or change the battery and start it up, after a few minutes you should be able to activate the door locks, thus unlocking your trunk.

Good luck...

My trunk popped open for no reason at all on 3 different occasions. Twice when I went down to the garage it was open. (I keep the doors unlocked in the garage so I didn't hit the remote at all). And...


Most often I'v encountered a 'sensitive' button (trunk open) on the key fob. Did you have the key fob in your pocked or purse (no offense, don't know your gender). Check the fob for 'sensitivity' of the 'trunk open' button. This could be where the issue/problem is.
