SOURCE: 1990 nissan maxima trunk release switch

Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.
Cheers..

Sounds like the cable has broken on your latch!! and your trunk!! I would try putting your key into the rear hole and gettint the locking device to move around to see if you can get it to shut!!

Make sure it is not binding/sticking where you pull the release cable.

Drench the entire works in WD-40. Push it back and forth until it moves with no resistance.

Make sure the part that hooks onto the latch hasn't come loose enough to not slide over when it makes contact.

If that doesn't work, take the whole thing off. You'll have to anyway to replace it. Chances are with it disassembled you'll see what's wrong.

SOURCE: 1989 Camaro. Trunk latch will not catch and

Lube it up well & try a screwdriver in latch, the same way it would catch on striker on body and see if it snaps in and holds, if it doesn't, keep lubricating latch and try again until it does. Work key position in lock as well, to make sure it is actually in the latch position & not stuck in open position.When/if it does, and still won't hold closed, then you need to loosen bolts at latch and adjust a little at a time until it does.

My trunk will not latch on a 2005 Nissan Maxima?


If here is a manual release try pushing it back in. Also spray some WD40 or similar lubricant on the trunk latch and cycle it a couple times.

2010 Nissan sentra trunk won't close - like the latch isn't hitting hook.


It is common if you have loaded anything heavy into or out of the trunk, it is easy to catch on the latch and it bends quite easily. Try covering the catch or latch with a grease like white lithium or vaseline and shutting the trunk lid down lightly and see if you can see the imprint of where it is striking, then bend accordingly. Or you can climb into the trunk with a flashlight and shut it down and see if you can see which way it needs to be bent to line back up.

The trunk latch on my 2003 Nissan Altima will not work. Whenever I try to close it, the latch will not catch so I have it tied down with a rope. How can I fix this?


It sounds like the latch mechanism is in the closed position, which would prevent it from catching when you close the trunk lid. Try using your key to unlock the latch, or activate the trunk opener from inside the car. If neither of those works, you may have to use a screwdriver or similar bladed tool to manually open the latch. Also, check the metal bracket that the latch catches on. It could be out of position, or could have something covering it, preventing the latch from locking onto it.

My trunk wont latch, my seatbelt doesn't buckle, and sometimes it wont start when I turn it on, I have to wait for awhile please help me fix my car I love it but want it to work properly, email me @...


The trunk catch is adjustable - look at the bar the latch catches on. It is mounted to the trunk with 2 screws or bolts. Slightly loosed those and move the catch up just a tiny bit. Re - tighten bolts and try closing. If the latch doesn't catch, move that bar up a tiny bit more until it catches. Don't move it too much as water will get in around the seal. The seatbelt latch can be replaced either with one from a junkyard or an aftermarket seatbelt assembly from an auto parts store. As far as the no start I need more info - does the starter turn over but the engine doesn't catch or, when you turn the key does nothing happen or a clicking noise? Let me know _ I'll do what I can!
Hope this helps!

The trunk is stuck closed on my 1999 nissan maxima. the release clicks, but won't work--and the key will not work as well.


I had a similar problem with my 1988 Toyota. You may have to remove the back seat and climb into the trunk through the cab of the vehicle to access the latch mechanism. Once you do this, you can find the problem and address it. My problem was broken clips on the connecting rods from the key to the actual latch. There may be some broken linkage that keeps the key from moving. I hope this helps. FYI don't do it on a hot day!
