Take it out and let it rest in liquid wrench for a night. re-install and engage and disengage multiple times to make sure the product is in. if that don't help, replace the mechanism

Trouble with trunk lid staying closed goes down but comes back up

Please make sure your keys are not in the trunk because there is a safety mechanism that will not allow the trunk to stay closed if the keys are detected in the trunk. The other issue will be if the hold down mechanism is not pulling the trunk completely closed once the trunk engages the lock. You will then have to have it serviced to make sure the pull down motor is operating.

My car's trunk wont lock or close at all. What do I have to do take it to a auto shop or what? I dont know the cause or maybe the lock is broken.

Just like any door that closes, the trunk latch is comprised of two parts: one is a mechanism or latch, the other is a plate or pin that the latching mechanism catches it on. At least one of these is adjustable, and most if the time, both are adjustable. Check either of these parts, and see, if you pull or tug on them, if they move or wiggle. Chances are that one has worked itself loose, and needs to be readjusted. Or, you could have some debris or foreign particle in the latching area preventing it from fully engaging the catch. Another scenario is that somehow your latch has become "pre-engaged" and therefore will not catch, if it is not open to receive the counterpart.
If none of these apply, then check the latching mechanism, see if you can get it to "latch" by hand, so you can see if maybe a spring or something has fallen away. Then again, if it is man-made, it will break eventually, maybe that's the case here.

Hope this helps.

Cadillac 96 deville - Trunk won't close

Try spraying the inner portion of it with some WD40 or similar lubricant. It sounds like something must be stuck. After you spray it, keep working the key and pushing the remote until you get some results. Good luck. Let me know how you make out.

2000 Lexus ES300 trunk lid does not fit right on 2001 Lexus ES300

Hi, try loosening the catch on the trunk lid but do not remove it and the lock mechanism, close the trunk lid but not fully, then pull the backseats down and climb into the trunk. Adjust the lock and latch until they meet up and lock together ( This will take some time and patience is essential). Fasten the Catch and Lock back up. Then retry opening and closing, if it still doesnt fit just do the same again, just needs a bit of adjustment.

hope this helps. jonno

2005 audi a8 trunk + upgrades for ipod integration

I had exact same problem, but what I found out was a three step solution to the problem.
1) The trunk lock above the trunk lid tself - sometimes looses coiling retention for the lock to work properly, which in effect does not properly lock wrap around the pull down electronic unit located in the body of the car/trunk that catches and pull the trunk lid down SOLUTION: check and make sure lock is works properly. you cab check by opening trunk and locking it with remote key, then pry the lock with a screw driver to see if it unlocks or stays locked

2) The motor catching unit in the body of the car/trunk that catches the lid and draws it down can be off balance (sitting too low to catch the lock (upper trunk lid with lock) to pull it down and stay locked. Have a mechanic - Audi preferrably, check the positon and allignment to adjust it, so it can catch trunk lid and lock to stay locked. HOPE THIS HELPS!
