Sounds like the latch is stuck. try spraying some WD-40 or PB Blaster on it, let it soak in and wipe off the excess.

I do have a volvo S70 yeat 98. The trunk dont close it seems to got locked up; i tryed to fix it anf the only lock I found its for the seats. Csn sny onr hrlp me how to fix it mysrlf?


This is a diagram of the lock assembly in the trunk lid. The highlighted area shows the lock in the open position. If you look at your lock assembly and it doesn't look like this, it may be in the locked position causing the trunk to not close. use the trunk key and turn the lock cylinder. You may have to use a screwdriver to gently pull on the lock hasp while using the key to unlock. If the hasp is in the locked position, it should open and allow the trunk to close properly

It seems that my 2005 Lexus ES330 trunk light won't turn off. How to check whether the trunk light is off when the trunk lid is close?


Remove the bulb if you think it runs the battery down. the switch is part of the latch assembly of the trunk.

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.

The trunk lid on my 2000 Avalon vxi seems to be out of alignment (slightly) is this easy to fix? It closes and locks ok, but seems to be sitting high when it's closed


If the lid is too high, the latch / keeper needs adjusting downward -- loosen, move it down, retighten, test -- repeat until proper adjustment is achieved.

I need to get to the trunk lock mechanism but can't seem to figure out how to remove the lining from the trunk lid. Audi A4. I have the convertable top down and the service light says close the trunk. I...


The liner is held on by little plastic studs. It can be gently pried off Then you will have access to the lock. The lock should have a nut on it that holds it to the trunk. Turn nut counter-clockwise to remove.

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

Trunk lid pops open when Locking the Vehicle. Have to close it everytime i lock. This happened after an accident and replacing entire trunk lid.


I will do it in my own way since the wiring is messed up, and when i press close on my Remote, the trunk pops open. I will Harness this problem to benefit me since my remote does not have a trunklid switch. I will route the Motor (that has a piston) wire through the switch relay (located just above the vehicle ID plate area), so that opening the trunk lid is only possible when i keep pressing the trunk open swich (on the trunk lid) while at the same time pressing the close/LOCk button on my remote.

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!
