SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325 - key locked in trunk

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

SOURCE: 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.

It is your wiring coming out of the trunk on the left side. One of the wire are cut because in cold weather when you open the trunk, wire can't move easily in the plastic tube. Sorry for my english.

How do i get key and remote to open trunk


your car does not have the function on the remote for opening the trunk only i think,
if the trunk stays locked with the central locks,than you should turn the key in the trunk lock for different position,
if now straight,turn to flat,if now horizontal,turn to 6 oclokck position,

Can't unlock trunk


spray a little wd40 into the lock cylinder and insert the key and jiggle it until it works. this often happens if the lock cylinder gets little use, which is the case with remote activated locks. you will have to gain access to the mechanism if you want to see why it's not working with the remote.

My trunk button is broken and i can;t get my things out the trunk


What do you mean by "my trunk button"? Are you referring to your key-less remote? Or the yellow button in the glove box? First check to make sure that you have not accidentally set the valet switch to LOCK. That will disable the remote & the yellow button from working. Info on how to do that is in your owners manual.
FYI, there was a technical service bulletin on your key-less remote. Buick redesigned it [they had problems with the trunk opening accidentally] If you need a new key-less remote, the new part number is P/N 25678792.
If the solenoid for the power trunk lock has failed, the remote will not work. Assuming you can not open the trunk using the trunk key, there is one last method to get into the trunk. You must remove the rear seat assembly. Then remove any plastic or paper covering which may separate the trunk from the rear seating area. Using a good flashlight, a 3/8" drive ratchet, several extensions [totaling 3 feet in length} and the proper flex socket [most likely 8mm, 10mm or 13mm] you can remove the three bolts which hold the latch mechanism from the inside of the trunk lid. The trunk lid will then open. At this point, you can get your stuff and fix the problem with the power trunk mechanism.

My 2004 Totota Avalon trunk wont open with the key. Opens fine from inside or with remote. Is there a seperate key ? I never used anything but the remote, or maybe there is a lock of some sort but I...


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.

IS THERE ANY TO GET THE TRUNK OPEN FROM THE COCKPIT OF THE CAR.KEYS AND REMOTE ARE LOCKED IN TRUNK


Remove back of back seat. You can get the keys then, or there should be a trunk lid release at the lock.

If you can't get into the car because it's locked, you'll need a Slim-Jim like device to get the door open.

The trunk on my 2000 volvo s-40 wont open


you'll need to insert your key into the trunk lock. prior to doing this you'll need to use the automatic lock on the driver side of the vehicle, hit the unluck button twice. Torn the key in the trunk to the left, you may have to slightly press the trunk button in while doing this and give it a lttle wiggle after the key has been turneed to the left push the button all the way in, if this does not work repeat the process but reverse to the right instead of the left.

This manually disables the remote lock for your trunk.
