Question about 2008 Hyundai Elantra
SOURCE: trunk release not working
It could probably use some penetrating lubricant once opened; don't use WD-40 as its properties are great for penetrating but not for long.
There are a number of products, most available at auto parts stores or the chain hardware stores that have more durable lubricating properties.
Now, place one hand firmly on the trunk and 'bounce' the trunk lid while you try turning the key. It may take a few minutes until you hit it just right but I have never failed to open a stubborn trunk or hatch this way.
If it still doesn't open, you may have been lightly hit in the rear of the car (in a parking lot for example) that has minutely distorted the sheet metal where the stationary latch is mounted. In this case, you may have to hammer (with the side of your fist) the area below the lip of the trunk while trying to turn the key.

you can but is tricky depending on how easy the starter is to get at.
take your ground cable and hook it to the frame somewhere it will make good contact and touch the possitive cable to the big wire on the starter keep in mind that it will turn over as soon as you touch the big wire on the stater,so turn your ignition key to run and make sure it is in neutral if it's a standard

I am not familiar with this model, but most cars nowdays have a way to get into the trunk from the rear seat. Either it folds down or there is a passage way into the trunk from the arm rest in the center. If all else fails you can jump across the wire on the trunk button to activat it if the switch is bad, but I don't think I ever saw one that went bad!

you will have to be patiant with this as long as the seat belt tensioners havent gone try to pull the belt so some tension comes of it so it can roll back into the spool or jiggle it by bulling on it quickley should be a simple fix hope this helps
