The key lock mechanism may not be working or connected.
Or, the power door lock, if equipped, may not have power to the solenoid that releases the trunk, or the cable to the release is broken or not adjusted correctly.

Good luck on this repair.

How do i get the back seats down to gain access to the trunk? It wont open


1. You either have a section of rear seat that folds down or you don't. Most cars do and those vehicles will have a manual tab just behind the seat that is connected to a cable that will release the trunk lock unless the lock is broken. So check the top of your rear seat sections for release buttons that enable a section of seat to be folded down. Then look just inside the opening for the manual cable release.

2. If you have a car with no section of rear seat that can be folded down, you will have to unbolt the rear seat to get access to the trunk. You need to remove the bottom section of the seat first. This will just pull up from the front and you can remove it from the car. Then you should be able to access the bolts that hold the upright section of seat in place.

How can i open the trunk from inside a running buick regal 2011?


If that model has a fold down section of the rear seat back, the manufacturer normally installs an accessible manual boot release tab in the vicinity of the fold down seat section just inside the trunk compartment.

If there is no fold down seat in that model or no manual boot release inside the trunk area, the rear seat needs to be removed so that you can access the trunk from inside the car.

04 G35 coupe. My trunk won't with the fob or the switch inside the car. I've previous comments that it's probably a broken wire. But how do I open the trunk to get to it? Thanks


If the rear seats fold down crawl in and pull the emergency release cable. If the seats do not fold down the fold the arm rest down and see if there is a trunk access window there. If there is you can use a long rod to pull the emergency release cable.

I cannot open the trunk. I tried from inside the car with trunk button, car key button. Nothing. Help!


Checked all the fuses? I assume your trunk has no key cylinder.
Can you fold down your rear seats? Many times there is a manual release inside the trunk, just incase you lock yourself in the trunk!
If there is no manual release lever or cable with handle to pull the latch itself may have a slot on it that when a flat screwdriver is inserted and twisted it will rotate the release.

My trunk is stuck shut, how can i get it open? they key will not turn and the latch thing by the front near the gas release will not work either...


If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk.
