Boot on mini 03 won't open


Has the car ever been hit from behind? Has the car ever had any work done on the boot? Does the lock sound like it's doing anything? Have you tried using the key? Have you tried the manual release under the back seat? Information like this really helps diagnose what the problem can be. It sounds like the actuator is disconnected from the lock mechanism; or it could be the power line going back to the lock has been disconnected or damaged; but the only way to find out is get it open and remove the inside panel so you can inspect the lock. Once you can see what it's doing fixing it should be easy.

There should be a manual key hole somewhere in case of a power loss.

Back seats removal


I have been trying to get in the trunk of my 1994 Toyota Camry for almost a year now. I kept having different people look at it & was told I would have to take car to a body shop, they would have to take the entire left side quarter panel off or loose & it would be a rather expensive process. I just gave up until now it's time to get it inspected so I really needed to access the trunk. My husband let the bad seats down & crawled into the trunk today. He loosened the trunk lid liner at the back to expose the trunk lock. He then started working with the lock to get it moving. At that point he took the screws out of the inside car trunk release to expose the trunk cable. When he got it moving some, he then removed the entire lock assembly; we found that either a squirrel or maybe a small mouse had been in the trunk chewing acorns. The lock assembly was full of small pieces that was preventing the proper movement. He cleaned it out & added a little graphite. Then he check the lever going from the trunk key lock area to the actual lock & sprayed some WD-40 on it. He tried turning the lock & it moved. He then replaced the lock in the proper place & worked it several times. He then put the inside latch assembly back in the proper place & tried it - it worked. Then we got brave enough to close the trunk--put the key in & turned - it worked! Shut it back & used the inside car lever - it worked. Total Cost - about 3 hours of our time! This may not work for you but it's worth a try!

Hi,i can't open the trunk of my lexus es300,it doesn't have a remote key when i bought it and the trunk button doesn't ,the over-ride switch in the glove box doesn't work as well,what should i do?thanks


Hi, W/D here.
I'm not really familiar with your car, but I thought that I should offer this up as a Good Samaritan....
If your rear seat(s) will flip down, do so and open the trunk from the inside. Then determine why the over ride switch isn't working. The trunk button should be worked manually when you get the trunk open. Lubricate the lock and locking mechanisms with graphite, and not oil. You can get graphite at Lowe's, H/Depot or similar, in the lock dept. You can also get it at craft supply stores (Hobby Lobby). They sell it there for the Cub Scouts "Pinewood Derby" race cars.
Hope that this helped a little, --W/D--

What causes the trunk not to latch when closed on a 2002 volvo s60


Its probably a buildup of lubricant and dust that is making the latch stick and bind.Get some rags and put them around the latch.Get some wd40 and give it a really good spray.The wd40 will help to loosen the dirt etc.Leave it for 10mins and do it again.A toothbrush will help free up the dirt and the latch should work.can you hear the motor running when you use remote or key ?2 things that go bad on your car is trunk lock and trunk harness to see if is harness you bring remote and go to trunk push on lock and unlock see if you can hear any noise from the lock in trunk if no moving nosie is heard than your problem is in trunk wire harness ,but most the time problem is trunk lock they go bad more than the harness. when you go to trunk open you will see cover on the trunk lid hold with a clips you have to pry out all the clips and cover will come out in the trunk lid now that done you will need to unplug power from the trunk lock and lock from under front side you will see 2 bolts torx size t45 or t50 remove that and lock is out.Check the lock condition and movement manually.---------------

The trunk of my 2007 Eos convertible won't close


i havent ever had this problem but i'm familiar with the eos so i can say almost undoubtedly that the you have a bad trunk latch. there is a switch in the trunk latch that tells it if it's closed or open and i'm guessing that the switch is bad. once the switch tells the car that the trunk is closed, it runs the motor that close the trunk fully.

however, i say again that i've never had this problem on an eos so there is a fair amount of room for other issues. volkswagens are rather complicate and use a lot of different switches and such in the convertible top. also, the only way to know for sure is to bring your vehicle to the vw dealer becuase only the vw 5051 scan tool is capable of reading the inputs and outputs of the convertible top control module and this is what is required to properly diagnose the problem. don't waste your time throwing parts at it, the dealer should be able to give you a 100% positive diagnosis with one hours labor (about $90)

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold


you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

Key just spins around in the lock and won't open....


Sounds like a broken Lock Cylinder, i can't tell you how much of a pain it is to replace these in the trunk. You have to get into the trunk via the back seat typically, crawl inside, remove the panel and work the latch mechanism with a screwdriver. unless you have another way of opening the trunk, then it's a lot easier. after you get it open it's fairly simple of removing the lid panel and removing the lock cylinder assembly, couple screws or bolts usually and it comes out, you can take it to a locksmith and see if they can fix it, or you can buy a new one from your local dealership. but your key probably wont match unless you have a locksmith re-key it for your old key. Models with latches and keys built together and the key cylinder opens the latch, are a little more expensive but don't have connecting rods.

Electric door locks


Hi, Yikes! Sounds like a control module problem as the things in common don't work independently. For example the driver combo lock works which activates the electric lock, this checks the fuses and relays in that circuit which would mean the switch on that door uses the same circuitry. The keyfob also goes through the control module but then again so does the rear lock but the module is the only real thing in common. The wiring harnesses are not in common either. The only thing I can think to do is have the module diagnosed on the computer. Sorry, But I hope this helps!
