Well first is it a full rear seat or is it a fold down one what i mean is if you push from the trunk and it moves as ahole pice then theres no way to becasue it bolts at the lower end of the seat one way would be to push the seat down and have a hanger and hope for some luck

I need to open the trunk of a 2000 Grand Prix. No key and trunk button does not work


Trunk button inside glove box or on a remote? If remote, the remote might just need a new battery.

Might be able to unlatch it from inside trunk. The back seat(s) generally fold down for more "trunk" room. Try getting inside from there. You can take to a locksmith or dealer. Otherwise, ruin the lock by shoving a screwdriver in there and turning it forcefully..

How to get my 94 geo prizms back seats to fold down


old post but is a tricky feature, never posted here.

prizm = toy corolla.
so the operators guide is more easy to find.
4 0 million corolla's made, a world record.
and means facts on it not rare.
page 16 covers this, and has a special switch there,
to prevent what you are attempting.
per this drawing.


22020842-5jivdbcvwbjyt0yxwjt3tz1t-1-0.jpg "This system deactivates the lock release
lever so that things locked in the
trunk can be protected.
1. Push down the security lock levers
to lock the rear seatbacks.
On vehicles with built-in child restraint,
only the left seatback has a lock lever and
can be lowered. The right seatback cannot
be folded down.
After locking the rear seatbacks, try folding
them down to make sure they are securely
locked, otherwise, someone could
get into the trunk by folding down a rear
seat."

so if your car has this feature. and is ENABLED>
only locksmith can help you.
drive there and get it cured.
easy no?

now page 16b, with out this feature.


so we cant really answer, as we dont really know which car you have option wise. but i answered you, both ways.

22020842-5jivdbcvwbjyt0yxwjt3tz1t-1-1.jpgWhy not buy the operators guide and not be in a fix NEXT time.
yah think?

Can't open trunk using the inside lever, key or button. Any suggerstions as got perishable food stuck in there. Thanks


If your Grand Am has the split rear folding seat, you can try folding the seat down but using a wire coat hanger. Try to snake the coat hanger through the split in the seat and hook the strap to pull it to be able to fold the seat down to gain access to the trunk. http://www.gaownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=17492&d=1121049659

As for the trunk being locked. Is it possible the remote lockout was activated? Try a yard stick to slide the red switch or just crawl in after you folded the seat down and removed all the food. If it's engaged, the remote solenoid will still activate (you can hear it), but the trunk won't open remotely.

Good luck and keep us posted. Thank you for using fixya

My daughter's 2005 grand prix will not start. How can she get in the trunk to get to her jumper cables because the key fob won't work to open the trunk and the inside trunk release won't work...


In your situation I think your best bet is going to be taking out the back seat. Luckily this is very easy and will allow you easy access to your truck and jumper cables. Okay in order to remove the back seat you will have to have a socket set. There should be 2 bolts holding the bottom of the seat down and you can find them on the floor on the front part of the rear seat. One bolt on the driver side and one bolt on the passenger side. After you get those bolts out you should be able to remove the bottom section of the seat. If you can not look for two more bolts on the back part of the seat. You will have to look between the back of the seat and the bottom part. After you take those two bolts out both parts of the seat should be free and you can remove them. I hope this helps.

Locked my keys in the trunk of a 2009 hyundai elantra


if the car has a fold down back seat fold it down and try to reach in the trunk there should be a safety pull to open it or if you can reach the keys you are done ! if it does not have a fold down seat the fastest and safest way is call a locksmith or AAA if you have the service you dont want to start using a coat hanger or a slimjim on that car you could break the plastic clips that hold the linkage rods in place in the door and do some damage to the car . hope this helps

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.

I went to open my 2005 Toyota Corolla trunk using my car key. When I rotated the key, the mechanism went 90 degrees CCW but the trunk remained locked. I tried the trunk release in the car but it wouldn't...


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. Note, these are instructions for an '04 corolla but I think it should work

Does the back seat open to the trunk?


Go into the trunk. On each side, below the package shelf are two pull straps. Pull the strap for the side of the seat that you want to fold down. The one on the left is a 3/4 width seat folded down. The one on the right is a 1/4 wide seat folded down.

My rear folding seats wont fold down to allow me access to my trunk. i know they lock, but my owners manual is locked in the trunk and i do not know how to unlock the folding seats.


When you open the trunk, there should be a knob at the top right of the opening. Pull that and it will unlock the locking mechanism for the rear seats. I just recently figured that one out myself!
