Done the same thing ! you need to use a very thin hex key ( does not bend ) put some tape or rag around the shaft so the trunk lid is not damaged or scratched, and try to force key into either left or right latch and move it sideways to release, then swap to other side. you may have to add a small amount of pressure with a flat screwdriver on the released lock to prevent it locking again while working on the opposite one. YOU are trying to release the hook in the lock. once done you will find a small rod from the release button has not been in place.

The trunk release lever will not open the trunk. the trunk will open when the key is used but not by the release lever.

So, when somebody else pull the cable, do you see the latch move back and forward from the trunk? There is nothing complicated about a manual cable, it just pull the cable and there should be a reaction to it. If there is no action from the latch, no movement at all, then the cable is just broken. If there is a little movement, not enough to pull the latch to open the trunk, you still need to replace the cable.

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.

Why can't I open the trunk from inside the car?

bad cable.
or detacted.
or latch jammed.
find any mech, this is childs play to all but can be tricky to recover.
one trick is the full middle of cable from side (cuts slack) then person 2 pulls lever.
see that magic?
remove lever and pull center cable, with vise grips, this can move more cable and move latch further (mech,101) and latch opens.
any shop can do this why not ask them , some will do it for free.
just to show what great guys can do in 5min work.

How do u close A tt soft top that has jammed halfway

e-z one here: first release hydraulics (as per manual) in trunk by turning the screw counter clockwise on top of hydraulic pump available by a slit in trunk carpet- then pull top all the way back (open), then pull forward all the way to windshield- pulling lever to open top usually will now be used to latch clamps to windshield- then to open the top pull lever as usual, top will detach from windshield and you then pull it all the way down towards trunk- I could do it while sitting in driver\'s seat- I did this manually for many years, after tiring of fixing, then breaking, over and over- became very easy after a while, to open and close by hand

The trunk on my 2002 Honda Accord will not latch

There is a possibility that the remote latch cable is stuck (lubrication is gone) . With a screwdriver, NOT the fingers, try to return manually the latch, to its open position (instead of the pull open position). If you push it too far, it will go into locked position, and when you pull down the trunk lid, it wont reach its normal closed position. In that case, pull the latch back open, with the remote lever. Should you manage to close the trunk properly, spray some WD40 or some lubricant on the latch assembly.
