Check the trunk release switch (either in the car or the fob) it sounds like it is allways operated but is inhibited when in drive or rev but becomes enabled when in park (safety feature so trunk cannot be opened in motion)

How do I prevent trunk from popping open?


Some trunks have a lever near the trunk latch on the lid to disable electrically opening the trunk. Could be a short causing the trunk open switch to open the trunk. If it doesn't open electrically via a button then you have something bent and the trunk doesn't close properly.

My trunk lid will not open on my 2005 nissan sentra. The remote not opening (do hear it click) and the inside button and key not working to open the trunk either


Just beneath the latch ,you can see a clip,turn it up and close the trunk.Try opening it with the button near dash or remote.It should work.They designed it to avoid theft during vallet parking.The main key(steel one) is used only for ignition.There is another key(with a black rubber head) is for ignition and trunk.So if you want to avoid missing any items from trunk using vallet parking,use the main key,put the clip down and hand that to the person who is assisting you during vallet parking.

My truck release button only works when I turn the car off...(?)


If the trunk opens only when it's in park, it's probably a safety feature so you don't open the trunk while your driving down the road.

2005 hyundai Accent, can't shift out of park and no brake lights


may want to check the brake pedal switch located on top of the brake pedal arm. If all fuses looks good, replace the brake pedal switch, which can also cause to not shift out of park.

How do you put the top down. I have a rental, and their is no owner's guide.


1.Empty the trunk of all contents
2.Park on a level surface and set parking brake, shift auto trans into Park or manual into R
3.Turn the ignition off.
4.Open the trunk.
5.Pull down the convertible top latch located above the rearview mirror and turn it counterclockwise to unlatch . Leave the latch open and turned to prevent damage.
6.Pull rearward on the side edge of the convertible top and pull it off of
the windshield frame.
7.Push the convertible top down into the trunk
8.After the top is stored, push on the convertible top to ensure that the top is fully retracted and securely stored.
9.Close thet runk by pressing down from the rear center of it with a swift, firm motion.

Trunk light and dash light always on


I would have to agree it's an electrical problem. It might simply be a defective trunk lid latch switch. Here's the wiring diagram:

Trunk catch no longer seems to work on Park Avenue


Check your fuses. It could be something really silly like that.

Even if it has been meticulously maintained, this is, after all, a 16 year old car. The more neat gadgets you have, the more can go wrong. If all the fuses are ok, start checking the relays. A Haynes manual should help you track down the correct one.

If the relay is ok, then your next stop is the solenoid.
