Your problem intrigued me, so I went out to my Focus in the drive and made an attempt to break into the trunk form inside the car. Here is what I came up with. Get a 3/8 inch thick board about 4 feet long, and make a couple of wooden wedges tapered from nothing to ten inches long. Pieces of 2 by 4 work well. On my sedan, the release mechanism is in the top corner of the trunk on the passenger side. From inside the car put a wedge in between the seats about half way down. If you are a contortionist and you have a good flashlight, you should be able to see the release button and get a good idea where to aim your board to push it. I was able to do it but I had the luxury of knowing exactly where it was. Tell me if it works. P.S. If you have a lot of junk in your trunk, this probably won't work.

My 1997 Toyota Corolla trunk is stuck I can hear it unlock but it won't open

Many times you can get to the trunk by taking off the back of your back seat (some even fold down for trunk access). Something is stuck or caught. If you can try a key, do so. Be sure to find and fix the problem. Could be a broken cable or the lock mechanism needs lubrication. Check and lubricate the trunk panel lifters as well. They may need replacing. Good luck!

The remote will not open trunk or doors and can not open the trunk from the inside of car

Remote could have a bad battery. You could have a blown fuse. Does the door unlock switch unlock doors? Can you hear the trunk solenoid when you push the inside unlock button? If not, and no blown fuse, could be a bad trunk solenoid. Could also be a bad remote entry module. Have someone check for computer error codes that might point to trouble - Stores like AutoZone will check your computer for codes for free.

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore

When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

Trunk release and remote do not unlock the trunk

Try pushing down on the trunklid as you try the release from the front seat. The catch may need to be repositioned.

If you do not hear the solenoid- check the fuses and replace the burned out fuse. This can happen when some cell phone car adapters fail- they blow the fuse to the accesories.

Trunk will not release with key remote but i hear click noise from fuse block on passenger side dash i have no manual so i dont know what fuse operates what also never have found any other trunck release...

If the actuator mechanism is functioning (you hear the click) the next step is to see if the cable is connected to the latch. Open your trunk and press the button - watch what happens. You may have to manually 'lock' the trunk with the trunk lid open to observe the action. You can always unlock this latch with your key if necessary.

Let me know what happens ... good luck

The remote entry button will not unlock my 2005 Malibu trunk and never will using the key or the trunk button in the car. What can I do to open the trunk?

Try pressure on the trunk cover with the key turning the locking mech. Also spray loosening oil in it as well. If this doesn't work u might have to remove the back seat. Check fuses befor u take this step or drilling it out. Hope this helps.
