Re: 2002 rsx hatchback wont open
Didn't know the hatchback has key hole. mine don't. Anyways. climb in it from the inside and see if you can manually unlock the hatch. It's a little white knob at the latch that moves from side to side...lock/unlock. good luck
Heath1292 Did you resolve your issue? I know it has been over a year since your post. I have a 2004 Acura RSX, and I am having the same issue. There is not an additional release switch/button. Cannot even take the panels off without it being a major de-construction. Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks

The usual cause of this is the lock has closed or jammed for some reason. You should be able to re-open the lock with the key or the lever inside the car. You should be able to see the lock mechanism is open.
The mechanism hooks on to the loop on the trunk edge. This loop is adjustable, and may have worked loose.
Lastly, all the above assumes that you have not had a rear end collision or similar damage.
The latch is not engaging all the way. It temporary does than release part way. It is similar to a hood latch. When you close hatchback the l?tch mechanism is supposed to close around the pin and lock tight for some reason your latch spring back a little. Could be the spring or locking clip. Might need a new latch mechanism. Easy to replace. Car won't lock because mechanism is broken
Something broke on the lock mechanism. In order to open the trunk, you will have to remove the rear seats and try to access the trunk area. Once you are in the trunk, you should be able to manually open the lock and investigate what broke.
On the side of the smart key there is a mechanical key that slides out of one of the sides-There should be a little release lever retaining the mechanical key. It can be inserted into the trunk lock and turned to open the trunk. There are several other positions the key can be turned to place the trunk lock actuation in different modes- it should be in your owner's manual Hopefully I have been helpful
