There should be a black handle beside the driver's seat, closest to the door to pull and release the trunk lock. Let me know if you need anything else.

SOURCE: 87 fiero trunk key will turn but wont unlock the

I'm assuming you don't have the electric latch...Since the key is turning, the piece of metal that connects the lock with the latching mechanism probably came off on the other end. You are going to have to destroy the lock. You can do that without hurting the rest of the car though. Drill it out so you can remove the locks internal pieces and stick a long regular screw driver in and turn the latch. The Fiero Store sells new locks.

This will sometimes work; either with help or alone, depending on the location of the latch, press the hatch in firmly and repeatedly near the latch with the flat hand while trying to turn the key or operating the remote release. If you can get it open, don't close it again until you have sprayed some lubricant into the latch mechanism; not WD-40 since this is good for loosening things but evaporates fairly quickly so provides only temporary help and the problem may return soon.

Did you check for a loose electrical connector on the trunk lock mechanism? There was a small two prong connector that was loose on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am I connected it and the trunk button on drivers door now works and when I get a new key fob I am sure it will work.

You might be able to release the back seats and lay them down to climb into the trunk, or the seats may need to be unbolted for access to the trunk.

Nissan sentra 2006 My trunk wont open && I spent 2 1/2 hrs trying to break in from the back seats. trying to reach the seat release but cant. The key or remote wont open it. The car latch wont open...


does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.

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.

Trunk lide wont open


Try to apply pressure from the top of the trunk and push short burst while using the key, If this doese not work you can try to enter from the rear seat taking out the bolts for the rear back rest.
