Question about 2002 Acura RSX

Open Question

The trunk release on my 2002 Acura 1.7EL won't open the trunk, either from the latch inside the car or from the keyfob. I hear a click sound as if a mechanism is activated, but the trunk won't open even if I force it up a bit. Any ideas? Thanks!

SOURCE: acura rsx trunk latch stuck & won't open

could be the spring release in the lever on the trunk itself. If you can hear the acuator locking/unlocking(that is all it's ment to do) then the spring release is the problem. you need to unbolt the latch from inside the trunk and once the trunk is open you can trace from there. I had the same problem due to a minor fender bender and I just fixed mine last week.

SOURCE: will not open trunk with keyfob or trunk release

Has it opened before? If so can you open it with the key? In the trunk is a electric solinoir at the latch, check the electrical plug for a good connection. Then try it again.

you're right, and yes you can. Now the option is dealer($130+) or Napa( around $100), either way it's pricey, but fixes the problem.

SOURCE: acura rsx trunk latch stuck & won't open

I"m having trouble with locking and unlocking my hatch using my remote. I have flipped the white switch in the trunk and it acts as a child safety lock if flipped one direction. However I am not able to open the trunk this way. It acts as a permanent lock. So I figure the switch must be flipped the other direction and need to replace my actuator. Is this hard to do. It looks to me like it two switches holding a bracket to hold the actuator itself after plugging in the actuator from both sides. Is it really this simple?? Is there more to it???

I put stuff in my trunk and when I got home the trunk would not open with the keyfob or button inside the door. How can I get into the trunk to get my stuff and how do I fix it?


Try pressing the fob trunk button while pushing down on the trunk lid as sometimes the latch mechanism gets dry and sticks. If you do get it opened spray some silicone spray onto the latch and wipe off excess with a towel. It is possible that something got caught or wedged into the latching unit. As Malissa said try unhooking and reconnecting the battery to see if the BCM resets and lets the key fob work.

Hatchback won't lock on saab 9-3


I had the very same problem with my 2002 Saab 9-3 after I manually moved the trunk latch to the locked position "out of curiosity..." Then I noticed there is a handle you can pull to release latch opening it up! Very simple remedy... It is a glow in the dark green plastic handle hanging down when the trunk/hatch is open dead center, just in slightly behind latch... Gently pull handle until you hear and see the latch click into the open position...Let me know how You make out. BTW: Toyota Camry has the same set up,same color as well...lol Good Luck!

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

My trunk will not open on my 2002 ford focus


It sounds like your latch has double locked. Here is the fun part, can you drop your rear seat and get into the trunk? If you can look for a tag that is possabily glowing pull it to release the emergency latch on the trunk. then with your finger lock the latch and check to see if it is leaving a large enough gap fot your pinky finger to fit in. if it is then you have reset it. if not then pull the emergency release a few more times
