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

The release lever it located by the fuel latch on the floor, on the drivers side of the vehicle. The cable from the latch to the release handle is connected and will move the latch but will not pop the trunk.

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.

    OK, how about when you pull the cable and somebody else just pull the trunk, does it open? If it does open, check for some kind of lever, is one that you can twist, this will rise a bit more, so that when you pull the cable the trunk can be open by itself.

I don't have a key for the trunk and the trunk release lever is not working. How can I get the trunk open?


The rear seat backing will have to be removed to access the paneling and lock assembly to open if the lever/remote is non functioning. Sometimes banging with your fist just above the lock while someone operates the release lever will open the trunk

How to open 2005 honda accord trunk release not working


If release lever is not functional, use key. If key will not turn in cylinder, spray WD-40 into cylinder and use sawing motion to get key inserted and continue sawing motion to free up lock wafers internal to cylinder so it will turn with key. If this process is not effective, you will need to remove rear seat to access paneling to trunk lock and open accordinly

What is the lock for down at the drivers seat near the petrol cap release latch?


It locks the lever that opens the trunk of the car so you wont be able to use that lever to open the trunk from inside the vehicle. The master key should fit in it. You will still be able to open the truck with the key on the outside right at the trunk with the key even if you have the lever locked. It's a security thing. I hope this helps.

Trunk stuck on a 03 Corolla


I was able to unlock my trunk by using a wood pole to operate the interior safety unlock handle, which is located just above the trunk floor, against the rear of the trunk lid. You simply insert the wood pole between your rear seats, while attempting to locate the handle release. When you find the handle, use the wood pole to push down on it.

Then, I had to take the top of the truck mat loose by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the plastic plug holders loose from the trunk. I also had to use a 10mm socket to loosen the trunk locking mechanism. Once inside, I notice the remote release cable ball had dislodged from its slot. I simply placed the ball in its slot and reassembled the trunk.

Problem solve. :)

1990 nissan maxima trunk release switch


Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.
Cheers..
