Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim

The trunk of our 2005 kia optima didn't open by using the key-only by pulling the lever inside. i tried to 'fix' it by switching the lever inside the trunk- now the trunk wont open at all and the back seat wont fold down :( would love any ideas you may have to fix this!

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.

Locked my keys in the car but the trunk is open


if they do fold down reach in with a coathanger to reach the releases.. if not.. they bolt in and cant be removed from the trunk side as they were installed from the inside.. but a slim jim can open the car.. call law enforcement and they will come by and open it for you..especially if there is an issue like your child locked inside(or your dog)..

2004 Kia Optima LX gas door and trunk lid will not open using buttons on drivers sdie door?


Most vehicles that have a power release, also have a manual release. Check inside the vehicle, around the location of the outside filler door. You might have a removable panel, that will reveal the fuel door release cable.

My trunk warning light on the dash isn't going off. I pulled the back seat down to see into the trunk and the trunk light also isn't turning off. It seems to be latching and the switch itself, will shut...


I know this is an old thread but I just had the same problem with my 2005 Optima. The trunk lid that contains the latcfh assembly wears down a bit after age. To fix this issue you need to remove the trunk switch and add a couple of small plastic or rubber washer under the switch. Should take about 10 minutes and costs less than a dollar.

When you take the switch out you will probably find some corrosion on the metal contacts. Now is a perfect time to clean it all up before putting the switch back in.

I accidentally locked my keys inside of my trunk and I am on vacation. can I go to a local dealership provide proof of ownership and get a basic key made to open the trunk? I have a 2008 Kia Optima....


Tahe a metal hanger, straighten everything except the hook, stick the hook on the lock mechanism and pull hard and fast. If you go too slow the hanger will bend**to be more specific the locking mechanism is inside the child seat anchor, located behind the headrests in the back dash area on either side of the vehicle, pull the grey casing out of the backdash and if you look inside there's the latch, make a nice bend at the tip of the coat hanger and pull the metal latch pull,not the cable(i almost snapped mine :0 )ive done this with 100% accuracy on an 06' and 12' models but any model with upper trunk rear folding seat latches should be fine.

My trunk won't open


should be a button or lever or pull tab somewhere along the top of your back seats that allow them to fold down..... and your trunk should have an emergency release lever inside the trunk
