This car has a button to open the trunk inside the glove compartment. That button is not working, i just hear a clicking sound. What should i do?


Have helper push button as you try to lift trunk open. I may just be weatherstrip is sticking. Use silicone spray lube on rubber to stop this. If latch has failed may be harder. Does the trunk have a key hole? Often when electric latch has failed you can turn key, then push button or other release mechanism and then turn key further for manual release (some cars--not all).

2010 vw cc trunk will not open from remote or from inside latch


Ran into the same issue with our 2010CC (not Jetta) as in one of the posts. our problem was both the trunk wouldnt open and the rear fog light wouldnt iluminate. traced wires back to compartment that houses battery. in that space the wiring harness from the trunk lid terimates in multiple conectors. before they do that the wires pop out of the trunk lid support. The support had worn the wires through and 3 of them had been cut through. There are 10 brown wires in gthe bunch of 3 -4 different sizes. Check that area for conection problems.

Inside trunk release won't open trunk on 2002 Camry. Lock will not turn with master key. Remote trunk opener will open trunk.


1. Open trunk
2. Place latch in lock position
3. Pull inside trunk release to see what isn't moving
4. If trunk key won't turn, the key may be worn out and need to be replaced

2000 Intrepid Trunk Lock


All newer vehicles have an emergency manual trunk release inside the trunk.

This should be basically a rip cord directly attached to the trunk locking mechanism. Most modern ones have a yellow handle on the ceiling of the trunk that will release the trunk latch if it is pulled. Yours may be a different color, but if you get in there with a flash light you can probably trace a steel wire from the trunk latch back to some sort of handle that looks like you can pull it. Its definitely worth a shot.

Trunk will not open with interior button nor the remote key pad


use your key to open the trunk. Then look at the on and off switch located on inside the trunk latch. Make sure it is in the unlock position.

inside the trunk is an emergeny pull cord. when u turn the key there is a little piece on that cord that the key pulls on... u can only fix it with the trunk open though. so to open it get the remote or have a second person to open the trunk right after u press the botton. open it while the latch is rewinding
