    hey, I have the same problem but on my 1997 pontiac sunfire. I've been living with it for over 2 years, cause I'm broke *** poor. My trunk would only open 50% of the time using the key in the back.. once that completely stopped working I used the lever inside.. and now that has stopped working.. I would like to use my trunk again before my car completely dies :(

Locate trunk latch for dodge charger 2014


I'm not sure what you're definition of trunk latch is so let's cover all the bases.

The trunk latch mechanism is inside the trunk well. When you open the truck lid, look down, right in the middle of the back lip that you would have to lift things over to put them in the trunk. The latch mechanism is right there in the middle. While you are looking in the location, look just to the left as you are standing behind the vehicle, and you will see a handle kind of like the pull handle on the end of the cord for your walk behind mower. That is a glow in the dark, emergency pull release for the trunk latch. If you or a child ever got caught in the trunk for some reason, you can pull that handle to manually operate the trunk latch to allow you to open the trunk lid.

On your key FOB, you have a trunk release button as well. If you push that button twice within 5 seconds, the trunk latch will release. You also have a trunk release button to the left of the steering wheel. It's a round button with a picture of a car with an open trunk lid. You can push that to open the trunk lid as well. To use the button inside the car, or the one on the key FOB, the car must have the transmission in park. It will not release the trunk latch if the vehicle is in gear.

I had an electrical draw in my 97 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI. The fuse controls the trunk release and RAC..What does RAC stand for?


Retained Accessory Control. It's autospeak for power that is maintained after the vehicle is shut off to allow the trunk to be opened for example.

My 1987 Cadillac fleetwood D'elegance trunk wont open,even when i push the trunk release button in the glove department


Do you hear a click noise at all? You could try this.. One person sit on the truck lid, (heavier may be better) relieving the lift tension on the lock, while the other person push the button and hold. Sitter then hops off and pulls up on the trunk lid. If not working, Sitter person could try gently bouncing on the trunk lid while you hold the button.
Groceries still in trunk after 3 months???
If no joy, then you need someone to replace or remove the lock and pop it with a screwdriver.

Both key fobs and the trunk button inthe glove box do not open the trunk.


First thing to do is check the fuse panel and make certain the fuse to the pwr trunk release is not blown.

Secondly, open the trunk with the key and verify that the trunk latch hoop and surrounding area are clean and free of debris.

Good Luck

Trunk will not open with the door OR remote buttons. I can it hear it "clicking" but it is not releasing the trunk lid. I do not have a key for the trunk. What could the problem be?


sounds like it could be the latch mechanism is seized(rare but does happen) and you could try forcing the trunk lid open while using the remote button at the same time and it may pop open,other wise the release motor is not working properly(motor making noise but not moving),you should get a trunk key made just for this type of reason(any thing electrical or electronic will fail).otherwise you will have to access to the trunk some how to repair the problem.

Trunk / rear lid won't open


You can try this I think the latch is just slightly missaligned.Did you put something in the trunk and push down on the trunk?Try to push down hard on the trunk where the latch is a few times while pressing the remote.If this works and it opens look for marks on the latch indicating rubing,file down,spray with WD 40.Good Luck.
