    NEED MORE DETAILS. Locked, like the latch has become latched for some reason, preventing the trunk from closing, or trunk shut and wont open? Electric or cable release? check fuses? what have you already done to remedy the situation? Any information that would possibly give more of a clue what you need fixed?

If you are talking about where the key goes, try inserting a small pin or paper clip(straightened) to hold open the little door where the key goes while spraying a bit of WD40 or CRC-56 into the lock. It won't hurt the paint. After spraying, insert the key in and out a number of times. Spray again, this time with the key inserted. Move the key up and down while sliding in and out. This should free up any stuck tumblers. If she still wont open, repeat the process. Still no luck? May need a new tumbler.

Trunk will not open w/ key ,button or manual we use safety latch inside to open


Joann, 1 st check the latch assy. for any visible damage, replace if bent or worn. Sounds like the lock mechanism is seizing up, You can try to spray with a thin oil WD (penetrent oil) etc. to free up including inside lock, to lube the small tumblers inside. You have to, if able, remove latch assembly and soak in oil over night if real bad.
The lock actuator may also be defective and links below will tell more about that.

2010 Town & Country trunk won't shut


When you pull the trunk handle back towards yourself to open the trunk, it may be sticking in that position, so give the handle a tap to pop it back into its original position. Then shut the trunk and see if it has latched.

Trunk won't open


The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

'91 LS400, trunk will not open. key will not turn, electric latch switch clicks but won't open. valet lock in open position. Tried 1) disconnect battery, reconnect battery, use switch, push down on...


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

Chrysler sebring trunk lock wont latch and stay shut and locked


On the Sebring, there is a small switch on the trunk where it latches. Right in the middle, there is a small button you can push, which will allow the trunk door to shut. It just needs reset. Right where it goes down to lock at.

Locked trunk


For some stupid reason Chrysler put a switch in the trunk that if tripped prevents it from being opened. You'll need to get into the trunk through the back seat. On the latch there is a small white switch. You need to move it to the unlock position. If you can find emergency release in the trunk that will open it and you can find the switch from the outside.
