I guess you meant trunk lock. If thats the case then try using the key. Do your rear seats pull down to allow access to the trunk? If so, climb in and see whats blocking it from opening. Hope thats all it is.

Rear hatch on 2005 Elantra (5 door) won't open. There doesn't seem to be an emergency release anywhere. How can I get this open?


If it will not open with electric release nor key, you will have to crawl in the back and gently pry the hatch interior cover free being very careful as not to break/crack it. Look for any screws ( usually located in any handles that may be there ) and the rest is secured by clips that will release with a firm tug, Once removed enough to see the latch assembly, you can trip the latch with a screwdriver or suitable tool to release the lock and open the hatch. You must determine from there what is causing the door not to operate correctly

Why is the trunk popping open with a clicking sound mercury sable problems


I would get the remote checked at a parts store like Autozone. Could be trunk release button is stuck. Also try disconnecting the battery(neg terminal) and then see if trunk locks. The locks are made to work mechanically without electric. This way you would know if it is an electric problem or broken lock.

1994 buick lesabre trunk lock-how can I open the trunk without using a key. the key doesn't work although it open the doors to the car. is there a release button somewhere? we do not have the r


If it has the electric trunk release, the button could be in the glove box.
Otherwise you may have to remove the back seat to gain entry to the trunk.

Trunk wont open


Can you hear the lock click? You might need another person to listen while you activate the unlock mechanism. Can it be opened by a key? If so, try that. If it doesn't open, give a little push-down-and-release on the trunk lid while the key is in the unlock position.

If the lock makes no sound upon actuating an electric or lever-and-cable trunk-lid release, the problem is not user serviceable for the average car owner.

I could probably do the job, but I wouldn't, because it's too much work compared to the cost of an auto mechanic.

2001 AUdi S4 Trunk will not open. Can't open manually or wiht remote. WIll do it speratically. Can not open manually wiht button at trunk or with key. HELP.


The same "latch" secures the trunk closed.
The key, electric relay and button operate the same latch.
IF the trunk fails to open, the "latch" is not completely releasing from the catch that secures it.
The next time that you open it, inspect the adjustment of the latch assembly. It has 2 bolts that secure it. You can loosen them and adjust the assembly to a slight more open position - so that each time you operate the latch, it releases from the catch.

Don't move the assembly too far - or the trunk will not be able to lock closed at all.

The gate unlocks but will not open. The handle lifts and you can hear the lock mechanism move back and forth inside the gate but it will not open. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The door unlocks and...


The release handle and latch assembly are two separate parts. Between them is a control rod that falls off.
Unfortunately, the only ways in there are to either cut a hole in the inside panel, reach in and pull the rod, or to drill a 1/4" hole 5/8" from the left side of the latch cover trim, 1" down from the top. There is only one bolt holding the assembly on and that is where it is. Once you have drilled it out, slide the assembly to the drivers side to disengage the tab near the lock end.
Usually you can get the assembly pulled far enough out to get to the rod. (don't forget that the electric solenoid is still connected)You can re-use the assembly by counter-sinking a tulip bolt in the 1/4" hole and putting a nut and washer on the other side. Use a zip-tie to secure the rod to the clip it fell off of.
You can usually get a new inner panel cheap at a local scrapyard.

No, you dont need to break windows. use the mechanical key that is slotted in the end of the normal electronic gizmo key to open the drivers door. It doesn't work on the boot lid even though it should so you need to energise the electric boot release from unde rthe bonnet as described elsewhere in this solution.
