    What is the specific car model and year, and does it have a back seat?

  • trusha_goven Nov 16, 2010

    It is a Honda CRX DEL SOL Japanese Import 1995 model.
    No back seat. To open the boot you have to use the key which then rises automatically. The key is no longer working to open the boot. I am not aware of a manual way of opening the boot and I was not given a manual when i bought the car it would probably have been in Japanese anyway!

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!!

    Spray that graphite into the trunk back opening, aiming for the linkage. Push down on the lid and try the key again. Your linkage is probably gooped up and needs a good cleaning..
    Good luck!!

Hi Anonymous, If the middle of your back seat pulls down there's usually a latch or something like a bonnet release just inside the boot, I hope this helps.....CHEERS..

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?

Can not open my boot on my golf Gti 18T with the key our with the fob.the key will only go in part way on the boot, but no problem when i put in the drivers door it opens all doors exept the boot

you are trying to open the boot with the valet key(check the flute running down the middle of the key)it will only do door and ignition not the glovebox/ will have to use another of the three keys supplied.or the remotes if the bootlock is set to work with the doors(you can set seperately...)

1999 Audi A4 A4 audi central locking not working how can i open the boot with out it the key i have doesnt unlock the boot

Open the drivers door with the key. Look on the door for the unlock button and press it. This will unlock all doors and the boot. Use the handle on the boot to open it.

Hi, Somehow the boot of the car has locked

All locking and unlocking is done through the switch on the drivers door lock. Put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock several times. See if the boot opens then.
Or make sure you haven't hit the lockout button on the drivers door that stops anyone else from opening their doors. (Including the boot.)

Mercedes e class cannot open the boot

I have a e320 2003 model, the same has happened to me. I wondered if it could be the fuse but couldn't find a fuse that managed the boot.....
This problem is identical to the other post "boot wont open electronicaly by the boot release latch above the number plate, the boot release button inside the car or the key fob! I have to use the manual key to mechanically open it now."

Unlocking Boot lid

I am assuming your problem is similar to mine; the key fob isn't dead, but for some reason the boot won't release.  This happens rarely, but can be very frustrating (and embarrassing)!

When neither the key fob nor the release on the boot work, lock and unlock the car, and insert the key into the ignition.  Turn the key to the second stage, i.e. the accessories are powered, and then remove the key.  This ought to allow you to use the fob again.
