Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


You can't unless it has a key hole. If you put jump leads on the battery or connect a battery charger it will open straight away.

How do i get the back seats down to gain access to the trunk? It wont open


1. You either have a section of rear seat that folds down or you don't. Most cars do and those vehicles will have a manual tab just behind the seat that is connected to a cable that will release the trunk lock unless the lock is broken. So check the top of your rear seat sections for release buttons that enable a section of seat to be folded down. Then look just inside the opening for the manual cable release.

2. If you have a car with no section of rear seat that can be folded down, you will have to unbolt the rear seat to get access to the trunk. You need to remove the bottom section of the seat first. This will just pull up from the front and you can remove it from the car. Then you should be able to access the bolts that hold the upright section of seat in place.

The trunk of my 2005 Nissan sentra is locked and can't open even with key


may be manual release behind or under back seat and if not you may need to remove back seat and panal which should let you into trunk. once in there should be a release on the trunk inside to open it. most new cars have them to prevent someone from getting locked in trunk. after opened you may want to have lock system replaced or it could simply just need oiled....... hope this helps and good luck

My son just received a 1995 Ford Taurus GL, the trunk release lever by driver side seat is locked, we do not have a key and now cannot open the trunk. Any suggestions?


I don't know about your 1995 Ford Taurus, BUT I found that when the rear driver side seat was loosened, there were several cables running alongside the driverside rear (underneath the seat and connecting bolt). Pull gently on the cables...you will find one of them is the trunk release cable(which pops oopen the trunk). And lo....there were my keys inside the trunk. Took 5 minutes to take apart and put together. Good Luck.

My trunk is stuck shut, how can i get it open? they key will not turn and the latch thing by the front near the gas release will not work either...


If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk.

Unlock boot without key


No such thing as a universal key. I would remove the rear seat and crawl through to release the trunk latch.

My trunk for a 2000 Jetta will not open. The noise it makes while opening comes on, but it does not open. I have tried using the key, but it will not open. Please help, as I have to change a brake light,...


There is a plastic part in the linkage from the electric solinoid to the trunk release. The key activates the same solinoid but if you turn the key with more force it will activate the trunk release using a mechanical hook-up. If you remove the carpet covering from the inside of the trunk lid behind the key hole you will see the broken part.
