Question about 1999 Honda Accord
Posted by Anonymous on
Did you check and make sure the cable hasn't just popped of and if is has it is really easy to put back on just take a look under the dash where the handle is.

alot of times when the key isnt used often the tumblers will corrode in the lock, try spraying some good penetrating oil in there, and work the key slow so you dont break it off

My girlfriend's 2002 Civic LX 4-door had the same problem. Dvanvught is right; the problem lies with the truck latch cable. If you open the lid and look up at the latch, you will see where the cable comes from the release at the fuel door / trunk release lever inside. When that lever is pulled, it pulls a lever on the latch. The problem is that when you release the lever inside, the cable doesn't retract fully, holding the trunk latch in the open position. If you use your key to manually push the lever on the latch that is attached to the cable toward the cable itself (meaning, push the lever in the direction that will push the wire cable back into its housing), you'll likely find that the trunk lid will then latch. You could replace the cable which would be a bit of a pain considering how it's routed or try to work out a way to put in a return spring to keep pressure on the latch lever, automatically pulling the cable back into the housing.
