SOURCE: 2000 Toyota Corolla VE -- Glove Box Stuck

The most common cause is something inside the glove box jammed in the latch. Push glove box door release , and GENTLY insert a flat putty knife, plastic knife, or similar type tool in the groove of door, GENTLY try to pry open the door. U will probably (hopefully) find a napkin, map, or glove (does anybody actually put gloves in the glove box?) jammed in the inside latch. Let me know how u make out.

You can jimmy the latch if you're really lucky, but the latch is likely broken and you will have to break the door to get it open.

SOURCE: KEY STUCK

A pair of pliers a piece of cloth and a good dose of WD40

Wrap the cloth around the key after sending a jet of WD40 into the lock opening grip the key with the pliers using the cloth to stop it getting damaged and gently push and pull on the key.

If this does not free it rock the key from side to side and pull at the same time

Failing that it is down to brute force and a trip to the dealer for a new lock

SOURCE: keys locked in trunk - trunk release inside car

Older style cars did not always have remote trunk release. Call dealer ask if remote trunk release equipped. Rear seat can be removed but, trunk access is not guarantied. Recommend getting a replacement key made with vin and title.

2005 slk350 glove box is locked. how do you open it.


This is a common problem with these cars, the glove box has a solenoid that locks and unlocks it, this is the problem, you will need to lock and unlock the doors with the door button not fob, you will need to do this several times until the glove box unlocks.

This sounds like yours is on the way out but if you lock and unlock a few times you should be able to get it to unlock, you may have to do this a few times, i know its time consuming but the lock will unlock.

When you get the glove box open, there are two reasons for this problem, first it may just need a little wd40 sprayed on the latch and arm, or the solenoid is bad.

The way to figure this out is with the box open spray solenoid arm and latch and then hit the lock and unlock a few times as you watch to see it move, again you may need to hit lock and unlock a few time to get it moving, once moving you will see the movement and then spray a little more, If the WD40 works then the latch will move with door locks but if you still get get the latch to move then you will need to replace the solenoid.
The last thing may be a relay, there is a relay that controls the latch but most times its latch or wd40 being the problem.

There are TSB"s on this problem and if you bought this car from the dealer i would see if they would repair it at no cost to you, its worth a try.

The key you are using might be a valet key. Check to see if you can lock your glove box. If you can lock and unlock your glove box with the key then there is something wrong with your trunk lock. If the key does not work in the glove box, then you will need to order a master key from a toyota dealer.

My glove box valet lock is on, how do I override


Your black ended driver key should open the glove box. The valet key is not made to open it, thats the safty feature in it. There is no overide for the Valet settings, you have to unlock the glove box with Driver (master or black) key and turn the Valet switch off. Also the Valet switch does not engage the glove box lock so over riding the Valet security wouldnt open it even if you could over ride. If the Valet key would unlock it or was easy to overide then it wouldnt be a very good safety feature. Best of luck, hope you can get it opened.

I have locked my only key to my 05 f-150. i do not


You can try the police who sometimes will use a "SlimJim" to open the door. You can try the dealer and get the Vin# off the windshield plate for a duplicate key. Or you can try a locksmith (Some auto insurance will cover) who will come out with a box of keys to unlock the door.

Door locks, and trunk will not work.


Is the key you are using green? If so, it is the Valet Key and it will only lock the door - it will not work on the glove box or the trunk.
