Car boot won t open

Went through every site recently but couldn't get the answer.
For my 1985 Toyota corona the answer is.
Firstly open the boot.
1. Look at similar boot in open position.
2. Slide steak knife in at 45 degrees upwards from rear to front under the boot. Ensure the end of the blade is aiming at the lock.
3. Push steak knife handle to left.
Next fix the problem.
A. Search for defective component and replace it.
B. After replacing the basic lock a component still needed to be bent
to activate lock whilst key was turning.
Finally test boot without locking it.
Use screwdriver to click mechanism as if locking, before using key to unlock.

What's your problem?Hi! What for the small aluminium round button on a cover of a luggage carrier near to the right lantern of illumination of a product key is necessary? When I press this button

This is the electronic boot opener. If you have to use the key, then it's turned off! Go to the glove box You will see 3 switches, one relates to that boot button. Ensure this is turned on and you will not need to use the key and the button on the dash will work also.

Get a can of liquid graphite. Spray into the lock, aiming in different directions to spread the graphite in as many places as you can. Now stick the key into the lock repeatedly, feeling for the movement of the individual pins inside. After 15 to 20 insertions, try turning the key. If the key turns but does not open the trunk ( boot ) you'll need to go to a locksmith. If the key doesn't turn, repeat above procedure until you have movement in the lock - you should have success after the first time. It would be a good idea to spray all of your locks, as I'm sure they are all dry and sticky after 15 years!!
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

My trunk will not open on my wife's 2001 slk Mercedes. It's not locked. I think something is stuck in the lock. Can you help me?

your can check is it something stuck in the lock, first operate your roof either way, if you are going to open the roof as a first action boot lid will open to backward, let boot lid fully open and stop operating the roof, ignition off and have a look if something stuck you can see, if you are going to close the roof let close the roof and before close the boot lid stop operating roof switch, otherwise faulty boot lid lock, if faulty lock but you can try by mettle key blade which is in your electronic key, first take out mettle key from electronic key then insert mettle key in to the key hole in boot lid turn fully left and open boot if not work turn fully left and push it in, is this information helped you?

I can not release my boot open from button in car or from my key fob! only putting the key in and turning it will open it.

the boot lock has two positions full left then upright or full right then upright one of these positions will allow you to remotely open the boot.(it is so that you can lock tho boot and give the service key,which will not open boot/glovebox,to the garage or valet parking.

My golf mk4 tdi boot wont open atall

Get hold of a can of Plus Gas or even WD40

Open the slot where the key goes into with a thin screw driver push the thin tube on the can then into the hole

Cover with a piece of tissue , give it a god blast and leave it for a few hours

Do it again and this time gently rock the key as if you are trying to opem the boot

It should free off

As they say if you dont use it you lose it !

How to open boot from inside the car( cant seem to find button )

First of all
  • does it have an electric operated boot release button?

If it does , It probably needs adjusting to remove slack tension.
Trouble is its the boot....AARRRRGGGHH !! LoL
Although I own a V8 Holden Statesman, not a Alfa GTV,
An elec boot release is an elec boot release, Try what I do for mine.
Have someone push down on boot lid & release it , as you keep quickly hitting the button.OR have them sit on it.
Works most of the time for me .

If key fails to turn quite enough to open the boot, Or not at all , then the barrel may need lubrication or replacement.

As electric boot release motors only have a small amount of torque & share the same mechanism as the key itself.Therefore a "sticky" lock will eventually result in the loss of cable tension

To Lubricate you lock ...( no pun intended lol )
  1. Dip the your key in some oil .Motor/Baby/Sewing/Tan/Cooking anything like that, just on the area that is inserted into the lock.
And insert into the lock , Remove & repeat over , whilst jiggling the key untill it will open

  • Or Use a spray product such as CRC or WD-50 with the small straw that inserts into nozzle.

If that fails , and you get cannot access the rear of the lock area from inside the boot to manually operate the latch, Then youll need to force it open and replace the barrel itself.

First visit the wreckers/Auto shop and pick one up...dont forget the

Next Hammer a suitablly sized flat-blade screw driver into the keyslot of the bootlock, take care not to damage the car, but dont be afraid of making the lock itself look reaaal ugly, hammer,twist,wiggle untill its either open or out of the way .
once visible , turn the "square hole" to open your boot and attach the new lock.

After it has
