Well the trunk is electronic and seeing as the clock stopped working as well this leads me to believe that a fuse is blown. More than likely the Acc (accessory fuse) this fuse is located in 2 places.

1.) the kick panel under the driver side..
2.) the fuse box under the hood.

Dont worry the cover of both compartments have detailed diagrams showing where each fuse is. Now all you need to do is locate that fuse and replace it. Look for trunk, acc or accessory.

An alternative if the above isnt the problem is that the trunk is controlled electronically by a device called a regulator. There must have been some sort to cause both the regulator and clock to stop working,

You can gain access to the trunk (depending on the vehicle) by dropping the backseat. Then crawling inside. Now there should be a plastic cover covering the lock of the trunk if there is remove it. now you would notice a wire cable thingy, pull it to open the trunk. Replace the regulator and your set.. ps, The regulator is the plastic gun shaped thing with the wire sticking out of it.

Getting in the trunk the relese button isnt working

Check where the wiring harness runs up the drivers side trunk lid support arm. I just fixed that exact same problem on my Caprice. The ground wire is probably broken. When that happens, there is enough to pull the soleniod when there is no load, but when the trunk is closed and there is a load on the latch, there isn't enough power to pull the soleniod open to release the trunk. Is your license plate light working? They use the same ground. -------------------------------------------------------

Trunk wont unlatch with keyless entry remote or trunk release button on door on 1997 lincoln continental

It sure sounds like a fuse. You can check for proper voltage at the hot wire of the actuator while you try to pop it. I think you are overlooking the fuse. Make sure the actuator has a good ground as well.

My keys are locked in my trunk. i have 2004 malibu. my trunk release button isnt working. How do i check the fuse to see if its bad when i dont know which fuse it is

I think the fuse cover might be on the drivers side of the dash. Can only see it when the door is open. After removing cover I think the inside of the cover gives you a description of each fuse location.

My 1996 maxima key wont open my trunk and neither will the trunk release button

the trunk release button has a little metal like a hammer that hits the trunk lock to release if bent will not open or if you disable it by pushing it down to disable trunk release button the key lock is frozen will not work even if key go's in normal. need to replace it. if u need to get in your trunk and if it is empty would be easy to do just open the middle part of the back seat panel and with a thin and sturdy stick and flash light can hit the little hammer to open it . hope it helps

I have a 1993 325 BMW and cant get the trunk open. The button on the trunk lid just moves in/out freely. There isnt a lever on the inside to release the trunk. Of course the battery is dead now. I can...

if the doors and trunk are vacuumed operated, make sure all the doors are unlocked..this might make it easier to open the trunk..or get the car running and then try to open the trunk with the car running..turn key all the way to the left and push slowly in..I think it is vacuum operated like the mercedes

Trunk Problem

Has the key been giving you trouble opening the trunk before, or was this something that suddenly stopped working? Same question concerning the trunk release. If this has been going on for a while (getting worse gradually), try spraying something like wd-40 in the lock, then try the key. The trunk release cable stretches out w/ age and will stop working. If you can get vice grips to grab firmly on the cable, not the release knob, you can pull it out farther than just pulling the knob/lever, it should open. If this doesn't work you can remove the back seat, look to see if something was closed in the latch (a shirt, coat, etc, that might jam the latch)countrycurt0
