If it was an old police vehicle it has probably got an ignition kill switch located somewhere. This will have to be removed. And the wiring put back to factory standards. If not an old police car you are not getting voltage to the starter which is a bad relay. Do you get a clicking sound when you try to start? If yes, have someone keep hitting the start and listen and look for a relay under the hood.

SOURCE: I need to get my 97' Crown victoria trunk open from the inside.

There should be a safety trunk release located on the upper rear window deck platform- a black handpull . If it is still intact- it should pop the trunk lid.

I have a 2010 chevy impala the battery is completely dead i need to get into my trunk but cant open trunk with key and i dont think my back seats open to trunk


You can trash the trunk lock or removing the back seat to see if it opens into the trunk.
And if you cannot open the trunk lock with a key you better consider getting a new lock and key combo.

Hi, You would need to take the back of the back seat out to get into the trunk area to release the catch this means all the back seat needs to be removed to unjam the lock. Please leave me feedback, Malcolm Campbell.

1993 Toyota Celica trunk will not open. The lock is stuck in a middle position. Can I go through the back seats to fix the problem?


YES.
Crawl into the back and remove all of the screws that hold the back plastic panel on.

the back seat is removed by pulling up the rear seat front cushion.
Then you get access to the seat back.
There are 2 12 mm bolts that hold the seat back AND the side arm rest.Lower arm rest bolts are at the bottom. 12 mm.
Tie the seat belts back.
The seat back bolts are at the bottom. 12 mm.

B-4 you try that ordeal......
Use lock eaze on the lock cylinder.
Graphite spray can.

Try pulling the trunk key back out.
maybe a slide hammer..
Put down pressure on the trunk lid,first.
Have a friend sit on it...

WD-40: last resort.

Work the key in the cylinder after you dowse the key hole with that crap/chemical.
If the key brakes off,into the trunk you go.

My son just received a 1995 Ford Taurus GL, the trunk release lever by driver side seat is locked, we do not have a key and now cannot open the trunk. Any suggestions?


I don't know about your 1995 Ford Taurus, BUT I found that when the rear driver side seat was loosened, there were several cables running alongside the driverside rear (underneath the seat and connecting bolt). Pull gently on the cables...you will find one of them is the trunk release cable(which pops oopen the trunk). And lo....there were my keys inside the trunk. Took 5 minutes to take apart and put together. Good Luck.

My 2000 mitsubishi galant trunk want open with key or latch under front by driver seat. I need help finding emergency release in trunk


Sorry my friend, I think you won't find one....The best way is to fold back the carpet and locate the end of the broken cable, and then take a pair of pliers and pull the cable from there...
When it comes to replacing the cable it would be easier to remove the front and rear seats enabling better access to the cable....Then fold back more of the carpet.
There is usually a ten millimeter nut holding down the lever.... Remove that and then remove the trunk locking mechanism....That will mean removing two additional ten mil bolts
With those removed unhook the cable from the lock....It will have a small round ball at the cable end. This can easily be removed via the slot provided.
Tape the new cable to the end of the old one....Unhook any outer cable retaining clips you find, so the the cable cannot be caught anywhere.Refit in the cable into the trunk lock mechanism, this so that the cable cannot be pulled all the way through, if you should pull too far....gently pull the cable through
Refit the lever to the floor and then refit the trunk mechanism....The rear cushion is released by pulling upwards and fitted back by locating the retaining tongues into their slots....To remove the front seat, move all the way forward to remove the bolts at the rear of the rails and then slide it back to get the front ones removed....
Sorry I couldn't help any other way....Regards Johngee10

Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim


By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.

Beetle convirtible trunk won't open.


I was looking for a solution but found none.  Here is what happened.  I opened my trunk and wound up pulling on a little red plug that will open the trunk.  The red plug pulled loose in my hand.  The cord on the red plug snapped in half.  What I did not know was that there was a small plastic clip that had pulled loose.  The clip connected the various releases (remote, door switch, and inside the trunk handle) to the actual latch.  

Here is what I did.  First I removed the back seat and the frame to the hole that goes back to the trunk (this is a convertible).  The bottom of the seat pulled up and had a rod connected to the car.  I pulled the rod out of the hole and slipped the other side off.  Next I removed the head rests off (they popped up and off).  I used an hex wrench (I think 8mm).  There were three bolts on the bottom of the seat back.  The seat back then comes out.  The frame has 4 or 5 more hex bolts.  Now the hard part.  I was able to reach in and remove a screw under the handle release.  Then I pulled out the plastic inside cover to the trunk, enough to reach a small rod that extended up from the trunk latch.  This released the trunk, allowing me to repair everything.  I replaced the plastic plug cord with a metal cable (this time wrapped around the metal arm of the trunk release).  I put the little plastic connector back on (it did not break, just popped loose).  Now everything works great again.  
Good luck!
