Question about Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Every time I try to close the trunk, it seems the latch won't 'take'. The lid just pops open again; in other words, it releases.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and the trunk latch won't click into place and close fully, therefore the trunk won't close fully.


yes that could be the problem. try this putt your key in to the lock and turn it to unlock it , check to see if latch is open ,while still holding the key in the unlock position close the trunk and relock it with the key while pushing down on the hood at the same time. replace the lock when you can .there is no quick fix for this unless u use a bungee cord for it .

It seems that my 2005 Lexus ES330 trunk light won't turn off. How to check whether the trunk light is off when the trunk lid is close?


Remove the bulb if you think it runs the battery down. the switch is part of the latch assembly of the trunk.

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

My pontiac G6 trunk lid is jambed,the dash indicator say 'Trunk Adjar" but we can niether shut it or get it open. both the key fob and the inside relese button seem to be be working in that you can hear...


there is a little finger in the latch that closes when the trunk is closed chances are that the little finger has closed but the trunk is still open... this can be fixed by looking at the latch on the lid you will see a slot with a metal arm in the middle take a screw driver and place it in the hole in the slot at the top. press the button on the fob to open the trunk while your pulling down on the screw driver the little latch should twist letting the screw driver move through the track and pop out now alowing you to close the trunk and being happy again.

Trunk lid will not close - either electronically


Once a close fails, the latch may be now in the closed position, preventing a second try.
So release it first.
You should see the latch open up, so that it can accept the locking pin once again.
Then try closing it again.
If you have pounded on it, it may be hard to get it to release now, so you may have to pry on it with a screwdriver.

2000 jetta trunk lid stuck closed.


Stick little red nozzle of WD-40 or similar, in key hole as far as you can & give it a good spray & give it a little time, then spray again. Keep trying lock occasionally & try your key as well. When/if you get lid up, give it a good spray from behind as well.
